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.


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

To ensure high standards of education, class size is limited to 20-24 students, depending on the Year group.

ISCT school fees include all textbooks and some educational materials, the balance of which should be supplied by parents. In addition, from January 2020, every student in Years 4 to 9 will be provided with an iPad to use at no extra cost to the parents.   

Operating expenditure and capital development is covered by a non-refundable placement fee. 

Tuition fees are in line with other member schools of the Independent Schools Association of South Africa. For full information on Placement fees and tuition fees can be found here:
