School Fees

Designated by the WCED as a quintile 5 school, the school fees ensure that affordability remains a priority. 

Our school fees for 2023 were decided at the Budget Meeting held in November 2022. Fees are reviewed annually. As with all WCED schools, it is a legislated requirement for the School Governing Body to make provision for financial assistance, and this facility is available at CHS. 

While recognising the diversity of means among the Claremont High School community, it remains essential for all parents to prioritise the payment of fees, as these fees are essential for the school to provide all the facilities required to support an excellent educational environment.

Fees 2023: R11 700 per learner per annum

Fees may be paid in one of the following ways:

  1. Once off payment upfront of R11 700 on or before 31 January 2023 (No discount on fees are offered).
  2. Ten Equal Monthly payments of R1 170 with payments on or before the last day of each month starting January (31 January 2023 – 31 October 2023).
  3. Four Equal Quarterly payments of R2 925 on the first day of each term.

When making payment, please note that cheques must be made out to Claremont High School.

If depositing directly, please ensure that your school account number and/or your child’s name and grade are used in the reference field so that your account can be credited correctly.

EFT payments are always regarded as the more preferred option.

It would be appreciated if all large cash payments were deposited directly into the school’s account:

Parents are to please use the account number and/or your child’s name and grade as a reference.

Parents who have made use of this facility previously are reminded to update their online banking reference as their children move from grade to grade. 


Parents who feel that they are unable to pay their full fees should make application for an Exemption of Fees form as soon as possible.

Application forms will be available from the Bursar, Mrs Forbay, from 25 January 2023.

All applications are treated in the strictest confidence but are only considered if there is a full disclosure of all income.

Applications will close on 28 February 2023.
