Admission and Placement of Students

SACPS exists to serve the educational needs of both the local and the international community.

Admission shall not be denied because of nationality, race or creed. Admission is granted after an assessment by the administration of the potential of the applicant to benefit from the educational programme and the capability of the School to meet the educational needs of the applicant.  No places in the School are reservable in advance, except in the case of companies holding fully paid permanently reserved positions.

Should it not be possible for the School to accommodate qualified applicants, learners enrolled as of the end of the previous term shall automatically be enrolled for the following term. New applications shall then be considered for admission on the basis of the date of payment for registration accompanied by the registration form. If a waiting list for any grade is necessary, qualified applicants will be admitted on a first come first served basis as a space becomes available.

Acceptance and/or placement in a Form is subject to the assessment of the administration and is the prerogative of the School. The decisions of administration in such matters shall be final.

Students attending the School are charged fees, which cover tuition and board. The scale of fees is in line with those of other comparable International Schools and Member Schools of the South African Independent Schools’ Council.

The School is a non-profit making organisation administered and owned by a Governing Body and Board of Trustees.
