New admissions to Derona Academy are invited to please collect an application form from the school.

We try to limit the number of learners per class to ensure an optimal teaching environment, however, we welcome all new learners to visit the school with their parents/guardians. So, as learner numbers increase, additional classes (per grade) will be created to accommodate these students.

First, any learner that wishes to join Derona Academy is invited to arrange a meeting with the Director, Ewoud Rykaart. Second, a school visit will include a tour of the premises and meeting some of the teachers. Thirdly, and most importantly, this will include a general information session where the necessary information regarding school fees, school uniforms, stationery, and other requirements will be discussed.
