Applications will close on 15 May 2024, giving parents and guardians a month to submit their school application.

How To Submit Northern Cape School Admission Application

Parents will have to submit learner admission applications on the Northern Cape’s online admissions portal. 

When parents register on the admissions portal, they will be required to provide a valid cellphone number. It is of paramount importance that parents have access to this cell phone number at all times. 

A username and password, sequence number of application, reminder to submit documents and information on final placement at a school will be sent to this cell phone number. 

Following the successful submission of an admission application, parents will receive an SMS from the department.

Documents Required For Northern Cape School Applications 

The following documents need to be submitted within 7 days of submitting the school application form:

  • A copy of the Parent/Legal guardian ID (or affidavit in a case where the parent / legal guardian does not have an identity document);
  • Proof of Home Address (A Municipal Account in the name of the parent with the home address used during the application OR A legal lease agreement between the tenant and the owner of the property / Landlord);
  • Child’s Birth certificate or an affidavit or a sworn statement;
  • Clinic Card / Proof of immunisation for Grade R and Grade 1 Applications;
  • The most recent Grade 7 learner progress report for Grade 8 Applications.

  • Parents can submit a Parent/Legal Guardian Passport, Asylum Seeker, Refugee Permit, or Temporary or Permanent Residence issued by DHA.
  • Proof of Home Address (A Municipal Account in the name of the parent with the home address used during application OR A legal lease agreement between the tenant and the owner of the property / Landlord)

Any falsified or incorrect information may result in the application being rejected or disqualified.

2025 School Calendar

The 2025 school calendar will span from 15 January to 10 December, comprising a total of 199 school days.

Schools in inland provinces typically commence on a different date than those in coastal provinces, usually with a one-week gap between them. However, for 2025, schools across the country will commence the first term on the same date (15 January 2025) and conclude it 52 school days later (28 March 2025).

Term Dates

  • Term 1: 15 January - 28 March
  • Term 2: 8 April – 27 June
  • Term 3: 22 July – 3 October
  • Term 4: 13 Oct – 10 December

The 2025 school year will therefore come to an end on 10 December for both inland and coastal schools.
