• Admissions Policy

Archers College accepts children who are able to cope with a mainstream academic curriculum.

Introduction

The Admissions Policy is in line with the South African Constitution, South African Schools Act (Act No 84 of 1996) and the National Education Policy Act (Act No 27 of 1996). The Admissions Policy of this school is determined by the directors of the school. The Head and the admissions team are responsible for the administration of the admission of learners into Archers College. Archers College accepts applications at all times during the school year.

Applications are accepted from the birth of the child. The earlier you register the better, as our waiting lists work by application date order.

Priority will however be given to learners who already have a sibling/s in the school. It is however essential for siblings of current pupils to be registered timeously to facilitate their enrolment into the school.

We do not prefer to accept new children to start Grade 1 at Archers College as the Grade R academic curriculum is of a higher standard, which enables children to cope better in Grade 1. Normally, children who only enroll to start at Archers College in Grade 1 feel extremely pressurized to keep up with our academic standard. We are open to considering such applicants, however, an entrance test must be written in order for the School to see if your child will be able to cope with our academic standards for Grade 1.

NB: A full term’s notice from existing families is required by the first day of a school term prior to the pupil leaving to prevent loss of deposit.
