Prep School Admissions Procedure

Welcome to the Prep School Admissions page of the Broadacres Academy website!

Broadacres Academy Preparatory has grown organically from the well known and long-established Broadacres Farm Nursery School, now known as the Broadacres Academy Preschool. Broadacres Academy offers you a unique private education.

The school is conveniently situated in the greater Fourways area of Johannesburg. We look forward to welcoming you, and sharing the Broadacres experience with you and your child.

The admissions procedure is set out in the steps below.


  • Visit our school for a relaxed walkabout with our head of either Junior or Senior Prep School during term time on WEDNESDAYS  at 08:30. Experience first-hand the rural charm of our unique farm environment; or

  • Arrange a day-visit for your child at the school. Let them experience a Broadacres school day. Your child is welcome to spend a day with us to see if they enjoy the small classes and personalised individual attention of caring and committed teachers offered at Broadacres Academy; or

  • Chat with one of our Broadacres Academy Parent Ambassadors (we will gladly put you in touch).


You can

  • Download an application form here.

  • Collect an application form from the admissions office at school.

  • Mail us to request an information pack.


An academic screening is part of the admissions process for all applicants.  The screening is done on an individual basis to ensure that the necessary developmental milestones have been met. This assists the school in ascertaining the best possible learning path for the child.

Broadacres Academy is a mainstream school.  We teach children in the way that they naturally learn and provide learning support where required.

This does not mean that we cater for children who may have developmental delays and other related barriers to learning and who still need the specialised environment established remedial schools offer.


Upon the successful completion of your application and all the obligatory requirements of the admission process; your child will be offered a place at Broadacres Academy.

Please download and complete the Prep School application form and send through to the Admin office.

We look forward to a long and happy association with you. In order to assist our parents and guardians (new and existing) with planning for 2019, details of the school’s fees can be downloaded below.
