Application Procedure

Due to the existing numbers of children already enrolled within the pre-primary school, the number of vacancies is limited. Entry level into the pre-school is at the Junior Group level, with limited vacancies in the Intermediate level and often-times no vacancies at the Grade R level, (dependent on parent transfers/residential relocation etc.)

  • Applications for admission in 2019 are open from January 2018
  • Applications close 18th March 2018
  • Application forms (or waitining list forms now - as admissions are closed) are available from the Pre-Primary administration office (10A Bartle Road, Durban) from 8.30am to 2.00pm only, Monday to Thursday, and Fridays until 1.00pm.
