Western Cape Schools Admission Applications Close Today

Applications to be enrolled in Western Cape schools close today. The application system opened on 26 February. Applications can be submitted both online and manually.



Today is the last day for parents and guardians to submit school admissions applications in the Western Cape.

Applications close at midnight.

Applications can be done in two ways: online or manually. If a parent does not have access to technology, they must then ask the relevant school for the application form. 

Online applications can be done on the WCED admissions website.

The following supporting documents are required when applying:

  • The last official school report card;
  • ID, Birth certificate, passport of the learner; or study permit (foreign learners); or proof of application (study permit) or a police affidavit;
  • Immunisation card (Road to Health Chart) [primary schools only]; and
  • Proof of residence (rates account, lease agreement, an affidavit confirming residence).

Parents are advised to apply to at least three schools.

The application system opened on 26 February 2021 and was then supposed to close on 26 March but will now close on 1 April 2021.

The department decided to extend the deadline after it was seen that applications were being done at a late stage and a request for an extension came.
