Our Admissions Policy

Application Checklist

You can apply for your daughter to be admitted to study at WGHS by following the relevant link below.
Please note that you will need to submit scanned copies of the following documents with the application form:

  • Unabridged birth certificate of your daughter/ward. If you do not have one, you must apply for it at the Department of Home Affairs, and submit a copy of the application receipt together with the abridged birth certificate. If your application is successful, you will have to present the unabridged birth certificate at the school before your daughter/ward begins her schooling here, as no learners may be enrolled without this document.

  • Should either parent be deceased, a copy of the death certificate is required.
  • Study permit/Visa/Refugee permit/Asylum seeker permit of your daughter/ward if she is not currently an RSA citizen or permanent resident.
