Cape Town - School Report Question and Answers

Aside from school fees, are there required expenses such as uniforms, laptops/tablets, musical instruments, or field trips that parents are expected to cover? What are the approximate costs?

Students must wear uniforms which can only be purchased from the school. They must have an apple device (Ipad in upper elementary grades and middle school and laptop at the high school). There isn't a band or orchestra so no need for instruments unless your child takes private lessons or participates in the middle school band once a week after school. Additional cost for field trips most of which are cheap and local but can be more costly at the upper school level if your child elects a week-long field trip for Innovation Term or travels as part of MUN or a traveling sports team in which case the cost can be $1000+. Middle School students go to grade level camps in February which cost a few hundred dollars each year. - Sep 2019
