Dear Parent/Guardian


Thank you for the enquiry regarding admission for your child. The following forms are included with this letter:


1. Application for admission

2. Annexure A: to be filled in by your child’s Principal and faxed back to us

3. Annexure B: to be filled in by the learner

4. Annexure C: to be filled in by you


Please complete the necessary forms and send them back to the school, together with the following:


 Your child’s latest report

  • A copy of both parents’ ID documents

  • A copy of the death certificate if either parent is deceased

  • A copy of the learner’s ID document or birth certificate

  • Two ID photographs of the learner

  • Proof of residence.


Please submit a copy of a most recent utility bill. If you are renting please attach a copy of the lease agreement.


Please note that only applications that have been completed in full and with all the above-mentioned documents will be accepted.


The following criteria play an important role in the processing of applications:

  • The proficiency of the applicant in English

  • The proximity of the applicant’s residence (preference must be given to pupils who live close to the school);

  • The fact that we can accept only a certain number of learners in grade 8 and therefore we urge parents to apply to other high schools as well.



  • School fees for the ensuing year are set at the AGM in October/November of the preceding year.

  • Groote Schuur High School is a fee-paying school, according to SA Schools Act 84 of 1996.

  • School fees are payable in advance unless an arrangement has been made with the Finance office.

  • The school fees in 2018 are R23 900 as well as a voluntary I.T. Resource Levy of R800 and this will be required within 7 days of acceptance of the learner.

We request that you do not make telephonic enquiries regarding the status of applications. Each applicant will be contacted by 22/06/2018. The non-refundable I.T resource levy is required within 7 days of notification of acceptance of the learner.


The closing date for applications for admission 2019 is 23/03/2018.



Yours faithfully

Marius H. W. Ehrenreich
