The 2022 phase 2 online admissions for Grade 1 and 8 learners will commence on Monday, 13 September 2021 and end on Friday, 8 October 2021.

Parents and guardians are urged to upload these documents onto the system or submit them at the school they applied to within seven days of applying.
The department said they recorded a total of 351 169 applications when phase 1 applications officially closed on 3 September 2021.
Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi, expressed his gratitude towards parents and guardians who managed to successfully apply, and the patience they displayed throughout the process. He also thanked the GDE team who helped to make phase 1 applications a success.
“We have outdone ourselves this year, not just as the department but as stakeholders, parents and guardians in having made the new two-phased approach a success so far. We wish every parent and guardian applying under phase 2 the very best and we assure them that our team will be there to assist them every step of the way,” Lesufi said.
The GDE team will be available for assistance during phase 2 applications on all the department’s social media platforms, the decentralised walk-in centres and call centre on 0800 000 789.
