Zone Information

The Board of Trustees has an enrolment scheme in place based on a Home Zone, which states that all children who live within the School Zone will be accepted. Out of Zone Applications are subject to ‘Enrolment Periods’ being determined by the Board of Trustees if there are spare places.  Generally there will only be one ‘Enrolment Period’ which is when applications are called for the next year. 

Ellerslie School is currently only able to accept students who reside within the school zone.  (From 24 August - 28 September 2022, out of zone applications for 2023 can be made.) 

The school zone is currently set out on the Ministry of Education's website. If in doubt, you can contact the Ministry of Education for clarification on 09 632 9400.
