An application form can be downloaded from this website, completed and then emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or the form can be completed directly online. We require one form per applicant. Please ensure that all the supporting documents listed above, including proof-of-payment of the registration fee, are provided.
Submission of an application does not automatically guarantee acceptance to Uplands.
You will be notified if there is no available space, and your child’s name will be added to our waiting list.
Limited scholarships are available for Grade 7 pupils entering the College in Grade 8 (applicants will be expected to write our scholarship examination, which is usually held in February/March of each year).
The admissions process usually involves an entrance assessment after which an applicant may be invited to attend an interview.
Upon acceptance, an offer of placement will be made and a deposit / enrolment fee will be payable to secure the child’s place.
Non-South African citizens will be required to provide a copy of a valid study permit or permanent or temporary residence permit prior to the enrolment date at Uplands as well as proof of membership of a Medical Aid recognised in South Africa.
Applicants who are classified as immigrants (i.e. began schooling at a school in South Africa and then attended a school outside South Africa for two or more consecutive years after Grade 3 or equivalent and who have subsequently returned to South Africa, or an applicant who will be studying in South Africa for the first time provided entry is from Grade 7 onwards), will not be required to study a South African First Additional Language (Afrikaans or isiZulu). Instead, such applicants would qualify for a concession, and would be able to study either French or Spanish at Uplands (please note that there is a surcharge for studying Spanish). An applicant who is studying in South Africa for the first time and enrolls in Grade 6 or earlier will be required to study a South African First Additional Language.
