Out of Zone Enrolments
For the purpose of avoiding overcrowding at the school, an optimum roll of 875 pupils has been established. Within this overall number, guidelines of 200 maximum at each of Years 9, 10, and 11 have been established to avoid imbalance in the school roll, and to provide for delivery of quality education.
Each year the Board of Trustees 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. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.
Applications for enrolment must, by law, be processed in the following order of priority:
First PriorityWill be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school (note that this does not apply to Napier Girls’ High School).
Second priorityWill be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
Third priorityWill be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
Fourth priorityWill be given to applicants who are a child of a former student to the school.
Fifth priorityWill be given to applicants who are 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 PriorityWill be given to all other applicants.If there are more applicants 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 communication or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.
