Out of Zone Enrolment - Years 10 to 13 (Ballot)

Closing date for Y10 - Y13 Enrolment Applications (for Ballot entry)

For out of zone students wishing to join our school in Years 10, 11, 12 or 13, we decide whether or not we will hold a ballot for entry every October. Our decision is based on what we know about the size of the year group in the coming year, the size of school, whether or not we have places available in NCEA streams, and the likely availability of spaces in specific courses.

We therefore ask all prospective candidates for entry into Years 10 to 13 to complete the on-line enrolment application at the link below and submit it by 4pm on Friday 29 October 2021. Please ensure you complete the Expression of Interest within the application form.  We will inform successful applicants shortly after 29 October 2021.
