Admissions Criteria

Criteria for Admission

  • Admission is based on availability.

  • Learners enrolling for Grade RRR, RR and R are not required to do a readiness test.

  • A learner who turns 7 in a specific year must be admitted into Grade 1. Should a learner who turns 7 not be ready for Grade 1, he/she must go for an assessment by an educational psychologist.

  • Should a learner turn 6 before 30 June, such a learner may be admitted to Grade 1 only if he/she is school ready. Note that according to SASA the onus is upon the parent to prove school readiness, however, learners who are turning 7 must get preference over any learner turning 6 before 30 June.

  • Learners enrolled in Grade R  at Loreto School Queenswood will get first preference in their Grade 1 year over outside applications.
