Uplands Prospectus

WELCOME TO THE UPLANDS ADMISSIONS PROCESS

As a prospective family, you are warmly invited to visit us. To book a tour and/or request further information, please follow the link below.

Uplands offers co-educational schooling from Grade 0000 to Grade 12, with boarding from Grade 4. Applications are open all year round. In making an application we require:

  • A copy of the child’s birth certificate;

  • A copy of the child’s passport (if a foreigner);

  • A copy of both parents’/guardians’ ID documents/passports;

  • A copy of the child’s two most recent school reports e.g. prior year and most current report (this is not applicable if you are applying for a Grade 0000 to Grade 0 place);

  • A completed Uplands application form; and

  • Payment of the R400 non-refundable registration fee.

An application form can be downloaded from this website, completed and then emailed to admissions@uplands.co.za 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.

Please kindly note that:

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.
