Step 3:

Our friendly and efficient Admissions Secretary will contact you shortly with further information. If there are spaces available, you may be expected to come in for an assessment or an interview. This depends on which phase of the school your child is applying for.

Step 4:

If we are able to offer a place for your child at Thomas More College you will be required to pay an Acceptance Deposit of R 6 000. The deposit secures the place which has been offered to your child. Provided that all charges have been paid, the Acceptance Deposit will be refunded, on request, within three months of the pupil leaving the School. In addition to the refundable Acceptance Deposit, a Facilities Levy of R12 000 (payment terms available on request) is also required from all new enrolments. This amount will not be refundable unless the pupil leaves the school within 2 years of entry date. An amount equal to 67% will be refunded if the pupil leaves within 1 year of acceptance, and 33% within 2 years of acceptance. The Facilities Levy is to be paid at the same time as the Acceptance Deposit.

We offer the following payment terms for the Facilities Levy:

  • R12 000 within 2 months of acceptance
  • R1 100 monthly for 12 months
  • R2 100 monthly for 6 months
