Admissions Process

Our admissions process requires:

  • That you have a clear understanding of the type of education that we offer at Khanyisa School before you commit to us.
  • That we can meet the needs of your child before we commit to you.
  • That you complete the application form, answer all the questions and make sure that the form is signed.
  • That you submit the application form together with your child’s Educational Psychological Report (not older than two years) and supporting documentation, via an email to, or hand deliver hard copies to our Receptionist at 4 Victoria Street Plumstead.


Steps in the admissions process:
  • Interview: When we have received all your documentation and established the possibility of a place in the class, the teacher will review the applications on the waiting list with the Faculty before authorising an interview with your child and yourself. A non-refundable fee of R350 must be paid on or before the scheduled interview. There will be a short financial interview with the Bursar.
  • A credit check will be made.
  • Acceptance is not guaranteed. Subsequent to the interview, the application will be reviewed at a faculty meeting, taking into account the needs of the class as a whole, as well as the needs of the applying child, before a decision of acceptance is made. The application may even be referred to the College of Teachers if need be.
  • Three Day Trial: Upon application acceptance your child will then be invited to attend a three-day trial period in the class. Following which your child will be assessed by the class teacher in literacy, mathematics and general knowledge. This is done to ensure that we can meet your child’s learning requirements. A non-refundable fee of R750 must be paid before the first day of the 3 day trial period.
  • You will be notified in writing on the last day of the 3 day trial if your child has been accepted.
  • Two Month Probation: Your child then enters into a two-month probation period. Most learning challenges are accompanied by other factors, which can include social, emotional and behavioural issues. The probation period allows more time for further assessments, to offer a deeper understanding of the child’s learning problem and an opportunity to observe the child in a social and academic environment. This enables the teachers to see whether or not our programme can fully comply the child’s specific requirements. School fees will apply at this stage which are currently R4000 per month payable in advance.
  • A once off non-refundable Admission Fee of R800 will be added to the first month’s school fees.
  • A once off stationery cost of R600 will be added to the first month’s school fees.

All costs are applicable to 2022
