*Applications for 2021 open on 17 February 2020 and close on 17 March 2020*
Parents would need to complete our school application form as well as apply online via the Western Cape Education Department “WCED” online site for admissions.  Our school application form will be uploaded to our website in due course and parents would need to download, complete and return a hardcopy of the form to the school together with hardcopy proof (no cellphone screenshots will be allowed) that they have applied online via the WCED online site for admissions.  We will not accept any application forms should one of these requirements not have been met.  Parents who have no access to email or would prefer to collect the application form from the school would need to collect the form themselves.



Please do not send any relatives or friends to collect as we find that information is not correctly relayed to parents which causes a great amount of confusion and frustration on both sides.  Please be advised that admission to our school is not based on a first come first served basis.
Parents are required to register online by accessing the following link:
