The fees for public schools in South Africa can vary greatly depending on a number of factors including the specific school, the area, and the level of funding that the school receives from the government.

In South Africa, schools are categorized as either “fee-paying” or “no-fee” schools. “No-fee” schools are public schools that receive more funding from the government and do not charge school fees. These are typically in less affluent areas. “Fee-paying” schools, on the other hand, receive less funding from the government and charge school fees to cover the costs of providing education.

For fee-paying schools, the school governing body, which is made up of parents and staff, determines the school fees. These can range from a few thousand to several tens of thousands of South African rands per year. For example, in some cases, primary school fees might be around R1,000 to R5,000 per year, while high school fees could be R10,000 to R50,000 per year or even more. Again, these numbers can vary greatly and are only estimates.

In addition, there are also provisions in South African law to provide exemptions or reductions in school fees for parents who are unable to afford them. This is based on the combined annual income of the parents.
