Admissions Policy

The school is an Ordinary Private school and will be unable to accommodate learners with true special education needs. However, the school will NOT place more than 26 learners (up to 28 in an emergency) in any class. Parents of registered learners for the academic year will be advised should their child's grade be affected. The full CAPS curriculum will be completed by all grades. The Kersten College Principal and staff will at all times be honest with parents in terms of the child’s progress or otherwise.

ALL ordinary learners who are of the appropriate age group will be admitted subject to the payment of the school fees, as well as availability of class numbers, and total learners allowed as per the Health Department’s Certificate, and there will be NO unfair discrimination against any learner in respect of race, gender, nor religious affiliation. Kersten College reserves the right in certain instances to request that a child write an aptitude test to determine admittance into our school.

The school will strive for the recognition, protection and respect of freedom of belief, religion and speech.

The school motto is ‘Knowledge, Friendship, Integrity’, which are depicted in the School Coat of Arms as 3 Gold Stars, and these principles will be adhered to at all times, as well as the five core values, namely Truth, Love, Peace, Right Action and Non violence.
