Fees for 2018

December 12, 2013 0 Comments


We are committed to providing excellent value for money and aspire to be Cape Town’s “best value” school.   The essentials of general excellence are prioritised and waste and non-essential expenses limited.   School leadership and management regularly explore ways of reducing costs without compromising excellence.    This effort is supplemented by improved financial governance and management that is transparent and accountable.

To sustain excellence it is expected that all parents prioritise paying for education and finding real non-financial ways of contributing particularly where they are partially or fully exempted.

At the same time, we do not want fees to make Grove unaffordable to low income families.   We have a commitment to maintaining a level of exemption of up to 10% in order to enable low income families to access the school.   This is well above the norm for model C schools in the southern suburbs.

Our vision for the school and its on-going development into the future however also requires going beyond current revenues based on fees.    We are committed to a new approach to funding with an emphasis on growing sponsorship and bequest income and leveraging other assets such as voluntary effort and our school facilities to reduce costs and increase revenue.
