Gauteng online application for Grades 1 and 8

Date released for Gauteng online application for Grades 1 and 8


The online application process to place pupils in Grade 1 and Grade 8 for the 2021 academic year is set to open on the 25th of June.


According to News24, MEC Panyaza Lesufi said that the system usually remains open for three months, but will now only run for one month due to the coronavirus pandemic.


“We are making it for a month, purely because we are in the middle of a lockdown and it was very difficult to open the online registration,”he said according to news24.


Lefusi said the Gauteng department of education was already receiving inquiries, making the decision to limit the application period to one month rather difficult. He added he would announce further details closer to the opening date.


The online applications will close on 25 July.


Last year’s online application process was delayed and postponed after the department had to resolve concerns raised by school governing bodies.


In 2019, the Gauteng department of education conducted the application process in three phases:


Phase 1

  • Registration and application first
  • Parents could apply to a maximum of five schools, using any of the five application options by 22 July 2019


Phase 2

  • The placement of pupils
  • Parents received offers of placement from schools based on admission criteria and availability of space and resources, from 31 August to 30 September 2019.


Phase 3

  • Admission to a school


The Department has urged parents to be ready to apply once the application process starts on 25 June 2020
