Guide for Online Registration for Grade R, Grade 1 and Grade 8 for 2024 in Gauteng Schools

Guide for Online Registration for Grade R, Grade 1 and Grade 8 for 2024 in Gauteng Schools: The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) offers an online application system for schools for grade R, grade 1 and grade 8 (as well as other grades). The online system is designed to simplify the application process for parents, making it easier and more convenient to apply for admission to schools in Gauteng.

To apply for a school through the GDE online system, parents must create an account and provide personal information, including their child’s name, date of birth, and school information. Parents will also need to upload relevant documents, such as their child’s birth certificate and ID, as well as proof of address.

Once the application is submitted, the GDE will review the information and determine if the child is eligible for admission. If eligible, the parent will receive a letter of admission and the school will contact the parent to arrange a meeting or orientation.

It is important to note that applying through the GDE online system does not guarantee admission to a specific school. The allocation of places is based on a number of factors, including the availability of space, the type of school, and the priorities set by the department.
