Spaces are available in Grades R to 7 for 2018, but these spots are going fast! Act today to ensure that your future SPARK scholar’s enrolment is confirmed for the upcoming school year.

You will receive a confirmation e-mail of your child’s acceptance when we receive the completed full application form, all required documentation, non-refundable registration fee and first month’s fee. There is no formal application process or entrance testing, as enrolment is processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

It is very important to understand that we accept scholars on a first-come first-serve basis!

Acceptance is based on receipt of the full application form, signed and initialed parent contract, signed media release form, all required documentation, and proof of payment of the registration fee and first month’s fee. Both fees must be paid in order to guarantee your child’s acceptance, and no students will be accepted if any of these items are outstanding.

Please note that payment of the first month’s fee and registration fee alone does not guarantee a placement if the process is not followed, or there is no space available in the grade of the preferred school.

Please submit your child’s unabridged birth certificate, a vaccination/immunisation certificate, proof of residence (utility bill), recent school report, and certified copies of both parents’ or guardians’ identity documents. In the case of students applying for Grades 2 and up a transfer card from the child’s current school should also be included.

Children in Grade R must turn 5 years old by 30 June of their Grade R year. So, children applying for Grade R may be 4 years old, as long as they turn 5 by 30 June of the following year.

Children in Grade 1 must be turning 6 years old by 30 June of their Grade 1 year. For all other grade levels, the child must have completed the previous grade level.

As the SPARK Schools network grows, there is an increased amount of parents who want to transfer their children between schools within the network.

An administration fee (R305) will be charged for internal transfers if you transfer a scholar more than once in a school year. Your first internal transfer will have no administration fee. Any transfers thereafter within the same academic year, will be charged at R305 per transaction.
