Namibian tertiary level organisations (UNAM, NUST etc.) accept entry candidates with only IGCSE or NSSCO level passes, but good South African universities require at least three subjects at Higher level.

We use this year as a very focused academic year, making sure we teach 21 st century learning skills together with the facts required by
syllabuses. We do this in small classes with our best teachers. We also use this year as a pre-tertiary orientation year, where students are given more freedom, but remain in an environment where they are provided with caring guidance as they adapt to this freedom.

They are taught study skills and examination skills as well as general skills on how to access and process knowledge and life skills. This prepares them to make the best of tertiary education opportunities in any country in the world.

Fees for this programme are set at the same level as other Senior Secondary grades for full-time
candidates. Part-time candidates may pay fees per subject.

Entrance requirements
Candidates must have already written Cambridge IGCSE or Namibian NSSCO examinations (or
foreign equivalents) and must have achieved a C grade for automatic acceptance for any subject. D
grades may be considered on the Principal’s recommendation only.
Acceptance and registration for the programme will depend on the results of the Ordinary level
