All children living within the school's enrolment zone are welcome to enrol at Northland School.  The Ministry of Education's instigated enrolment scheme is designed to ensure that there is always space available for local children to attend.

The school encourages enquiries about prospective enrolments.  Please contact the school if you wish to visit the school, meet the principal and discuss enrolment procedures.

Enrolment Scheme


The Board of Trustees and staff of Northland School are committed to providing quality education for all students in the school. There is an optimum roll figure for the school which is determined by the existing resources of personnel, buildings, grounds, facilities and other resources. The Board has determined to adopt the statutory provisions for enrolment schemes. This enrolment scheme aims to avoid overcrowding by using the statutory criteria to determine the priority of students eligible to be enrolled in the school.

School Roll

The optimum end of year roll range is 315 students.


  • to maintain the highest possible standard of education delivery to the students attending the school;
  • to avoid overcrowding at the school;
  • to ensure that undue pressure is not placed on the resources of the school;
  • if required, to manage student enrolment by adopting statutory criteria;
  • in accordance with the statutory criteria, to guarantee entry to students whose usual place of residence is within the geographic zone.

Home Zone

All students who live within the home zone shall be entitled to enrol at the school.  Click here for a map of the Northland area.

Out of Zone Enrolments

Twice a year the Board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available 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 will be processed in the following order of priority: 

  1. First Priority is not applicable at this school because the school does not run an approved special programme.
  2. Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
  3. Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
  4. Fourth Priority will be given to applicants who are children of former students.
  5. Fifth priority will be given to applicants who are children of Board employees or children of Board members.
  6. Sixth Priority will 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 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.
