    ISCT STUDENT APPLICATION PROCESS

    Parents interested in enrolling their children are invited to arrange an interview with the ISCT Admissions Officer to visit the school and meet with the relevant Key Stage Head (Primary School) or the Director of Studies (High School). 

    Upon initial enquiry, applicants will be provided with school admissions information, usually including a brochure, fees and relevant curriculum information leaflets, and an application form. Applicants will also be guided on the requirements for admission.

    Appropriate placement tests will take place once an application form and the registration fee have been received by us.

    Upon completion of the application process, a formal letter of admission or notification of regret will subsequently be issued to parents. Upon receipt of a letter of acceptance, the required contractual and information documents, and proof of payment of the placement fee, the student’s name will be formally added to the school roll.

    A reminder that South African law does not allow any foreigner who enters the Republic as a visitor to apply for any visa or permit from within the country unless exceptional circumstances exist.  The exceptional circumstances contemplated in the Immigration Act are that the applicant is the spouse or child of the holder of a business or work visa who wishes to work or study.  If the parents do not have business or work visas the children should return to their country of origin in order to file their applications.

    ISCT STUDENT SCHOOL FEES

    The International School of Cape Town is not subsidised in any way by the State.
