Enrolment Procedures

 

Our Prospectus is available here.

 

To receive an enrolment pack please telephone the school office on +64 3 3118888 or email your contact details to: enrolments@rangiorahigh.school.nz

 

All students who live within the home zone shall be entitled to enrol at the school. Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

 

We take great care with our enrolment procedures to ensure your child is placed in the most appropriate class on his or her first day at our school.


Once your enrolment package is correctly completed and returned to the school, one of our Deputy Principals will contact you to arrange an enrolment appointment. You can expect to be contacted the day after returning your completed enrolment package.

 

For students entering Year 9 or Year 10, the enrolment appointment may take up to two hours. It includes a meeting with a Deputy Principal, a tour of the school and may include the completion of two placement tests (reading and mathematics). Senior students are not usually tested prior to placement.

 

Once any placement tests have been marked your child will be assigned to a House and form class and you will be contacted to arrange a start date for your child. You can expect to be contacted within two days of your child completing any placement tests.

 

The Dean of House will welcome your child to the House and check his or her course before taking your child to meet his or her new form teacher.

 

This process can take several days, but we are confident it ensures the best outcome for newly enrolled students. If you have any questions about our enrolment procedures, please contact the school office on +64 3 3118888.

 

Information about our annual Open Days in May can be found on the News and Events page of our website.

In Zone Enrolments

 

All students who live within the home zone shall be entitled to enrol at the school. Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

 

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

 

Out of Zone Enrolments

 

Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The board will publish this information on this website and by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

 

2019 School Year

 

The board has determined there will be 12 places available for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone for the 2019 school year. Please contact the school office on 03 3118888 for an enrolment pack. The timeline is as follows:

  • Applications must be received by Friday 15 June 2018.
  • A ballot will be held on Tuesday 31 July 2018.
  • The results of the ballot will be distributed on Wednesday 1 August 2018.
  • The last day for acceptance of out of zone enrolments is Friday 24 August 2018.

 

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

  • First Priority must be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in the following special programme(s) run by the school and approved by the Secretary for Education.
  • Second Priority must be given to applicants who are sibling of current students.
  • Third Priority must be given to applicants who are sibling of former students.
  • Fourth Priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
  • Fifth Priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.
  • Sixth Priority must be given to all other applicants.

 

The order of priority is set nationally by the Ministry of Education and cannot be altered by the school.

 

If there are more applicants in the school in the second, third, fourth or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.

 

Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.

 

Special Programmes

 

The school also has a Mainstream Support Unit that caters for the needs of ORRS funded special needs students.

 

The criteria for acceptance into the special needs programme is determined by existing ORRS funding policy and practice as determined by the Ministry of Education.

 

Students who live within the school's home zone and meet the criteria for enrolment in the special programme will be enrolled ahead of out of zone students.
