Admission Process & Policy

Our admissions policy is complex and aimed at avoiding discrimination. Still, the learner's best interest is central to all aspects of our admissions policy.

It stands to reason that since we are oversubscribed, a selection policy has to be applied. It places focus on variables (in order of importance) like the natural feeding area of the school, educational language, academic achievement and whether the learner will also attend the applicable hostel etc.

Please also note that certain restrictions are applicable to age versus grade and on the repetition of Grade 12.

Please see HSH admission policy here (Afrikaans).

Admission is subject to Parents' acceptance of the School Rules and policies such as the Drug Policy; and the learner's acceptance of the Code of Conduct.

Applications are occasionally allowed during a school year, should a suitable vacancy have transpired in a specific Grade or Class. Please give us a call to discuss your unique needs.
