School Fee’s and Applications

2021

COMPULSORY SCHOOL FEES FOR 2021

School fees are set at annual public meetings of School Governing Bodies (SGBs), where parents vote on the amount to be paid.

At the Annual General and Budget Meeting held on 22 October 2020, a resolution for the compulsory school fees for the 2021 academic year was adopted.

APPLICATIONS

The applications process for the following year usually open in about March/April of the previous year, but is dependent on the Department of Education finalizing the date every year.   The school usually has an Open Day which is when application forms are handed out and parents and prospective learners come and visit the school to see the facilities. 

Applications have been done manually in the past and certified copies of documents required (ID copies of learner and both parents, reports, proof or residence, etc.)

We are hoping to go the route of online applications in future.
