Blouberg Ridge Primary School

Admissions Policy

Admission Requirements

We offer Grade 1 to Grade 7 at this school. The recommended age for Grade 1 is the year the child is 6 turning 7years old. It is also recommended that children complete a Grade R year at a Pre-Primary School in the year they are 5 turning 6 years old prior to commencing Grade 1. This allows children to familiarise themselves with the school routine and structure. A pupil must be within two years of age appropriate for the particular grade into which they need to be placed.

The following information and documents will be required from you upon application at this school. Originals should be furnished; copies will be made by the School and the originals returned to you immediately thereafter:
The school reserves the right to verify all documents.
