Enrolment Zone Information

Enrolment at Lynfield College is governed by an Enrolment Scheme, which recognises a growing demand for places at Lynfield College from our in-zone contributing schools.

The purpose of the enrolment scheme is to help manage overcrowding, to ensure fair and transparent selection, and to ensure the best use of Ministry of Education schools. Our Enrolment Scheme includes procedures for enrolling out-of-zone students if we have the capacity to do so.

IN-ZONE ENROLMENT

All students living within the zone are entitled to enrol if they are eligible domestic students.

OUT-OF-ZONE ENROLMENT

Our School Board has determined there would be places for 90 out-of-zone students at Year 9 in 2022.

Please Note: There are no out-of-zone places for Year 10 - 13 students for 2022.

Out of Zone Enrolment is based on the following priority categories defined by the Education Act:
  • Category 1: Applicants for enrolment in special programmes (Lynfield College Adult ESOL programme)
  • Category 2: Applicants who are brothers or sisters of current students
  • Category 3: Applicants who are brothers or sisters of former students
  • Category 4: Applicants who are children of former students
  • Category 5: Applicants who are children of Board employees or Board members
  • Category 6: All other applicants

Where the number of students exceeds the number of places available, a ballot will be held from the group with the lowest priority according to rules advised by the Ministry of Education.

Please Note: Applications received after the advertised due dates will be added to the waiting list. Places will be offered to those on the waiting list if they become available.
