A top-quality education is one of the few lasting gifts we can offer our children. Uplands College aims to provide such an education in a caring and supportive environment.

Prospective parents and pupils are welcome to visit Uplands College to view our picturesque, well-resourced campus. You may take a tour of the campus, grounds and boarding houses with the Marketing Officer, Mrs Bev Du Preez, when it is convenient for you to do so.

Entry to the College is determined by the availability of space, assessment and an interview with the Headmaster.

Space in classes throughout the grades and in our boarding homes is limited. It is therefore advisable to apply and complete an application for your child as soon as possible.
Scholarships are awarded to pupils currently in Grade 7 wanting to enter the College in Grade 8. One Scholarship and a maximum of four College Awards are available to pupils with exceptional talent in the Academic, Sporting and Cultural arenas.

The awards are made at the discretion of the College and are based on past academic, sporting and cultural achievements, a personal interview with the Headmaster, performance in the assessment and Scholarship exams.
