Admissions criteria

Placements at Gauteng Department of Education Special Schools are done via the district offices, however, we are able to assist in the process. If the learner is currently at a government school, the school is responsible for making the referral. Should the learner be 6 years and older, in a private school or a home school setting, the following document needs to be completed by the current educator (as applicable)
