The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) online application portal will go live on 22 July 2022 and parents will then be able to submit school applications. Parents will be required to submit their applications on the department's admissions website www.gdeadmissions.gov.za.

This applies to learners who will be attending Grade 1 or Grade 8 in the 2023 academic year. The application period is set to close on 19 August 2022.

The department has revealed some important tips that parents can follow to increase the chances of learner placement at their preferred schools.

Parents are encouraged to use home addresses within the school feeder zone. A feeder zone is a geographical area from which a school accepts its core intake. These feeder zones are normally near the school.

To increase the likelihood of the learner being accepted at a school closer to where they live, parents are encouraged to ensure that their preferred school choices are located within a school's feeder zone.
