Application forms will be available from Monday 12 February 2018 and must be collected from the Edgemead Primary School Reception. Forms will also be available at the three local pre-primary schools. Applications will close on Friday 23 March 2018.  A second round of applications may be considered after July 2018 at the discretion of the Western Cape Education Department.


Please note the following:

1. It is the responsibility of the parent to complete all the application documents accurately and to return these to Edgemead Primary School during school hours.

2. It is an offence to provide false information.  The application will be nullified if the school becomes aware of the submission of any false information.

3. We are only able to accommodate 165 Grade 1 children during the first phase of enrolment.

4. Children are enrolled in Grade 1 in the year that they turn 7 years of age i.e. the child must turn 7 during Grade 1.  Exceptions are seldom considered and if so,  only after all the 7 year olds are accommodated.

5. Children are enrolled according to the admission policy under the “Administration” tab on our website ( The following criteria              apply in this order:


(1)    Children whose parents reside permanently in Edgemead. The residence must be owned by the parent or a rental contract for at least one year must be  presented.  Casual accommodation with a relative or friend does not qualify.


(2)      Children who have older brothers or sisters currently enrolled at EPS.  These applicants may be resident outside Edgemead.


(3)    Children who do not necessarily reside in Edgemead, but who attend Village Day Care, Garden Village Pre-Primary or Edgemead Pre-Primary. However, attending one of these Pre-Schools does not guarantee enrolment. During the past few years, we have NOT been able to accommodate all the children who attend these institutions.  Proximity of the child’s residence to Edgemead is a determining factor.


6. Parents are advised to enrol as soon as possible after the application window period opens.. Please note, however, that enrolling early DOES NOT guarantee acceptance.  All  applications submitted during the applications window period receive equal consideration according to the above criteria.

7. We do not have waiting lists for enrolments beyond the current year.
