- School fees are payable in advance.
- An administration fee of R200 will be charged on returned debit orders.
- A cash deposit fee of 3.5% will be levied when payment is made in cash.
- Fees paid by 31 December 2023 are eligible for a 5% annual discount.
A fully refundable debenture, excluding interest, of R16 000 is payable upon acceptance to the School for students in grades 1-12. For families with two or more children in grades 1-12 a maximum of R24 000 is required per family.
For pupils in the pre-primary grades (grades 000, 00 and R) a non-refundable deposit of R5000 is payable upon acceptance to the school. This amount will then be offset against the fully refundable R16 000 debenture payable when the pupil enters grade 1. Thus, on entry to grade 1, R11 000 will be payable towards the prep debenture – the amount will be due by 31 August of the year prior to the child entering grade 1. Pupils who are withdrawn from the school before entering grade 1 will forfeit the pre-school deposit. For families with two or more children in pre-school, a maximum deposit of R7 500 is required.
Should a parent wish to terminate the Learner’s enrolment at the School, they shall be obliged to give the school a full term’s notice in writing or one term’s fees in lieu of such notice, together with any other amounts due to the School. A full term is reckoned from the first teaching day of the term at the end of which the termination is to take effect.
The debenture system is utilized to fund existing and ongoing capital development.
All applicants are required to submit a non-refundable application fee (paid on submission of completed application form). Should a pupil be accepted, an additional non-refundable enrolment fee is payable.
