School Fees

Fees are set by the Governing Body and approved by the parents towards the end of each year. This year the budget meeting took place on 27 October 2016. At the parent meeting voted for school fees at R31 500 for the 2017 academic year.

Fees for 2017 may be paid as follows:

  • In full in advance by 31 December 2016             R29 500 (R2000.00 discount)
  • In full in advance by 28 February 2017               R30 200 (R1300.00 discount)
  • 10 monthly instalments from Feb to Nov            R3150.00 per month
    via debit order, EFT, Easy Pay or credit/debit card.

Note: The discount is not applicable to bursary holders

The monthly fees may be paid by automatic transfer from your bank account through a debit order instruction. Should you wish to avail yourself of this facility, please contact the bursar to obtain a debit order form. Those parents already using the debit order system will automatically continue with a 10 month debit order unless you notify the bursar to the contrary.

The monthly fees may also be paid by means of a direct transfer into the school bank account. The bank account number is printed on the school account and it can also be obtained from the bursar.

The school also has credit card facilities available in the Bursar’s office. Each parent as of 2012 also has a unique Easy Pay number which appears on your statement so that you can pay at any retailer where the Easy Pay is available.

Rebate from school fees

Parents of learners may, (according to section 39.4) apply for an exemption or rebate from the school fees. Exemptions are calculated by means of a formula as prescribed by the Western Cape Education Department. The school fees are divided by the combined annual gross income of the parents and the exemption determined by a table, which is also prescribed by the Education Department (as amended in Government Gazette 39392 of 17 November 2006).
