How to Enrol
Steps for Enrolment
A list of in-zone addresses
Proof of residence 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, and on the school website. 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 by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school, and on the school website. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.
Due to significant roll growth, Hornby High School is not able to accept out-of-zone enrollments for the remainder of 2023 and for next year’s 2024 school.
The criteria for acceptance into Te Whānau Reo Māori are as follows:
- All prospective students must demonstrate commitment to learning Te Reo Māori me ōna Tikanga and whanau commitment to Kaupapa Māori is essential. Previous experience in a bilingual class and commitment will be assessed during a whanau interview prior to acceptance into the programme. Following the interview staff will meet to discuss the whanau commitment to the programme and assess the student’s suitability and the likelihood of success in the programme prior to a position being offered.
- For students who meet the proficiency requirement in (1) above, priority for acceptance into the programme is in the following order:
- Applicants residing within the home zone and with siblings attending Te Whānau Reo Māori.
- Applicants residing in the home zone.
- Applicants residing outside the home zone with siblings currently attending Te Whānau Reo Māori.
- Applicants with extended whanau connections (eg cousins).
- All other applicants.
- If there are more applicants in any priority group than places available, a ballot will be conducted.
Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority.
The order of priority in which applicants who live outside a school’s home zone are to be offered places at the school is as follows:
- first priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school;
- second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school;
- third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school;
- 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.
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth 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.
Te Whānau Reo Māori
The school operates the following special programme: Te Whānau Reo Māori.
Students who live within the school’s home zone and meet the criteria for enrolment in Te Whānau Reo Māori will be enrolled ahead of out-of-zone students.
Numbers for Te Whānau Reo Māori are limited. The total number of places in Te Whānau Reo Māori will be determined by the Principal after consultation with the Te Whānau Reo Māori teachers.
