The Gauteng Department of Education has set out an Admission Policy for all State schools in the province. King Edward VII School takes note of this Policy, as established in Circular 80/1999. The School also takes note of the fact that, as yet, no Policy has been established for admissions to schools with boarding facilities. Furthermore, the zoning areas of State schools have not yet been established.
King Edward VII School is a School that concentrates on the preparation of learners for an academic tertiary education – i.e. Universities, Technikons. The School recognises the educational need to differentiate in the education of learners, depending on what career paths are envisaged. The School thus reserves the right to advise parents on the most suitable education for their children, taking into accountability, interest, etc. as well as practical issues such as distance from home to the most suitable school.
Information on application forms, Scholarships and Bursaries and details of Open Days are available on the website each year. The Open Day for 2019 will be on Saturday 6th April 2019.
