Student Applications

Applications for Grades 2-12 are open. 

Please read the terms & conditions below  

  • At the beginning of the school year, all our classes are full. When applications open, you are applying for the possibility of a space becoming available. Spaces become available when learners exit our school or repeat a grade at the end of the year. This means that we do not know if and when spaces will become available or in which grades.
  • Please ensure that you provide us with at least 2 working contact numbers. Your application may be disqualified if you miss scheduled appointments due to incorrect contact information.
  • Applications that have incorrect/missing information will not be processed. This means that all required documentation requested must accompany each application.
  • Submitting an application to Christel House does not guarantee placement for your child. We receive large volumes of applications each year and only have a limited number of spaces available.
  • Please ensure that you apply to and accept placements from other schools for your child. If your child is accepted into Christel House, a staff member will inform you telephonically.
  • Christel House South Africa reserves the right to disqualify an application at any time during the admissions process should the application not meet the admissions criteria.
  • Christel House South Africa reserves the right to disqualify an application if found to have been dishonest.
  • Christel House South Africa reserves the right to prioritise qualifying siblings of current Christel House families.


Only applicants who meet all of our non-negotiable qualifying criteria mentioned below will be considered:
  • Results requirement: Grades 2-12 (no new intake in Grade R and Grade 1). Your child must achieve a code 6 or 7 in Maths, English and Afrikaans/
    isiXhosa (we require the applicants most recent report).
  • Financial Need: Your average household income must be R1500 or less per person per month. To calculate: Count the total income (salaries, social grants & stipends) your household receives per month (e.g., R5000 in total). Divide this number by the number of people staying in your house (e.g., 5 people) to get the average income per person. For example: R5000 divided by 5 people = R1000 per person per month.
  • Location: Child must currently & permanently live in one of these areas at the time of application:
  • - Hanover Park - Manenberg / Tambo Square - Phillipi Farms: Jim se Bos, Smallville, Springfield, Olieboom Farm, Sonnestraal Farm, Schaapkraal, Jabula, Lekkerwater - Phumlani - Lotus River - Strandfontein - Pelican Park - Lansdowne - Parkwood - Langa - Athlone: Kewtown / Bridgetown / Silvertown - Belgravia / Parktown / Pook Se Bos / Statishights / Bokmakierie - Ottery / Freedom Park - Mitchells Plain: Eastridge, Beacon Valley & Lentegeur only - Kiki Informal Settlement
