The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) has warned parents in the province that its admission application period is not yet open. This warning comes after a misleading article was published indicating that applications were open.

The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) wishes to warn the public of a fake link misleading parents & guardians about GDE Admissions. 

Hundreds of thousands of parents submit admission applications in the province annually demonstrating the demand for school placement in the province. It's therefore understandable that many thousands of parents are waiting for the application period to open to secure their child’s placement at the school in the province. 

The GDE explained that the article indicating that 2025 Grade 1 and Grade 8 applications were open contains a fake link. These types of links are akin to a phishing scam used to solicit personal information from unsuspecting parents. 

The department said they will make an official announcement regarding 2025 school applications in the coming months. This announcement will be shared on all official GDE websites and social media pages. 

We urge parents & guardians to await an official announcement from the Department on when #2025OnlineAdmissionsGP will begin

2024 Gauteng School admissions opened in June of 2023 in preparation for the next school year. This means that the 2024 application period could open soon. 

How Gauteng School Admissions Work

To apply for Gauteng school admissions, parents must complete an online application on the GDE admissions website. 

The process begins with registering and providing necessary parent or guardian details. Following registration, parents must enter their address details and provide information about the learner.

Next, parents select the school of their choice to apply to. During the regular application period, supporting documents are uploaded online. However, during the late application period, these documents can be submitted directly to the school when they reopen. 

The GDE also sets up a dedicated contact centre to assist payments with Gauteng school applications.
