Legae Academy

Gaining Admission

To enter Form one, Botswana students should normally have completed the National Primary School Leaving Exam (PSLE). Candidates who demonstrate an equivalent academic standard can also be accepted. Applicants to all forms must sit and pass an entrance examination.

To sit for the examination, parents of the candidates should have completed the Application form and have paid the registration fee (P300.00). A copy of the birth certificate and the latest Student Report from the candidate’s current school should also be submitted along with the completed Application Form. Progression through the Academy is based on merit. The development levy is a once off non-refundable payment. Incoming Form 6 (AS and A2) students are exempt from the levy, but are required to pay a refundable security deposit.

Fees are payable in advance at the Academy. They are always due three working days before the opening day of each term, and are otherwise publicised on notice boards and in circulars.
Late payment incurs a penalty, P100 during the two working days before opening day, P200 if paid the day before school opens, P400 if paid the day school opens, and there after an additional P100 every week, as do all RD cheques. Penalties can be avoided where a late payment and/or special payment schedule has been prearranged with management.

Should an A-level (AS/A2) student withdraw during the course the parent/guardian is still liable for fee for the entire course.

Places may be forfeited if fees are unpaid by the FIRST DAY of the term, unless prior arrangements have been made with management. When withdrawing a student, one term’s notice is required or one term’s fee in lieu of notice. The Academy provides its students with textbooks at no additional cost. Students are, however, accountable for any excessive damage to books or other school properties

About Legae Academy Botswana

Legae Academy opened its gates in January 1992 with its mission of providing ordinary Batswana with access to world-class Secondary Education at an affordable cost. In keeping with its commitment to provide world class education that meets the competitive demands of the 21st century, the Academy has pioneered the introduction into Botswana of the International General Certificate of Education (IGCSE) and Higher International General Certificate of Education (HIGCSE). Due to the decision made by the Cambridge to phase out HIGCSE and also because of the great demand for the internationally recognized A-Level course, the school introduced A – Level in 2006. A-level course is an entrance qualification for University Education around the world. These two established, University of Cambridge externally monitored, international curricula give students the opportunity to go beyond Botswana’s local examinations standard.
