The Admission Process

Admission to Glenwood High School 2022 is open.

We do encourage prospective parents to fill in the application form and send it as soon as possible.

You have several options to apply for your son:

  1. Online application: The online application gives parents the opportunity to apply online for admission for their son. The completed online application form will be sent to the Admissions Secretary in order for the School to consider your son for admission to Glenwood.
  2. Download the application form.
  3. Collect a hard copy from the School.

Please note that applications close in September of the Grade 7 year.

BEFORE YOU PROCEED with the Online Application form:

  • You will need a valid email address and personal information such as ID numbers, addresses, and contact numbers for the parents/guardians.
  • The following documents are required. Please make sure that these are already scanned and ready to upload. (There is no time to scan these while you are completing the application, as your session may time-out and you would have to restart the process.)
  • Please only upload the document requested under each heading.

1)   A copy of the Learner’s report: A copy of the Learner’s latest report.

2) A copy of the Learner’s unabridged (full) birth certificate. This reflects the names and ID numbers of both parents. If you do not have the new (unabridged) certificate, you may submit the old (abridged) certificate in the meantime. However, you must apply for the unabridged birth certificate from the Department of Home Affairs and send us proof of application (i.e. a copy of the receipt). Please ensure that you send us the new unabridged certificate before the Learner starts at Glenwood, as no learner may be admitted without this.

3) A copy of the Learner’s clinic card (as proof of vaccination). The School is not allowed to accept any learner without proof of vaccination. Affidavits or doctor’s certificates are NOT acceptable. Please visit your local clinic if you have lost the Learner’s clinic card.

4) A copy of both Parents’/Guardians’ identity documents (ID). If a parent is deceased, we will require a death certificate instead.

Single parents:  If you are unable to provide all details of the Learner’s other biological parent (e.g. ID numbers, addresses, contact numbers) please discuss your situation with the Admissions Department before completing this application.

5) A recent photo of the Learner. Passport size.

6) Recent proof of residence. A utility bill, Bank Statement, or a lease agreement.

Prospective pupils will be contacted for an interview. Not all applicants will be granted an interview. All applicants will be notified by post of the status of their application.

NOTE: The Application Form will not be dealt with until the R150.00 administration fee is paid and all the relevant supporting documents have been submitted. The payment of the Administration Fee is to cover the costs of processing the application only.

The School reserves the right to institute legal action against parents who may well submit fraudulent information on, or with this application.
