Criteria for Enrolment
Applications for out of zone students will be processed in the following order of priority: This priority order is determined by the amendment to the Education Act under 11(F) of the Education Act 1989.
First priority will be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in an approved special programme. This priority category is not applicable to Wellsford School.
Second priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students
Third priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students
Fourth priority will be given to applicants who are children of former students
Fifth priority will be given to applicants who are either children of Board employees or of a member of the School Board
Sixth priority will be given to all other applicants
If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot for out of zone places is required, it will be held and will be supervised by a Justice of the Peace. The date will be publicised in the Hutt News. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
We are accepting 20 out of zone enrolments for 2023.
All out-of-zone enrolment applications for 2024 will be held for consideration by the Board of Trustees in September 2023.
