​​​​​​​2022 Enrolment at Mount Maunganui College

General Enrolment Information - Year 9 to Year 13

On 30 June 2021, the Mount Maunganui College Board of Members formally approved a new enrolment scheme and zone. This decision was made in consultation with, and at the direction of, the Ministry of Education due to our recent significant roll growth and to future-proof against overcrowding.  This enrolment scheme and selection for entry to the school is based on the Ministry of Education enrolment regulations. It enrols students according to the provisions of the Education and Training Act 2020.

Specific details of the confirmed zone boundaries can be found here 

Mount Maunganui College’s enrolment scheme means we will be able to more accurately plan for our future, by having a clear picture of the number of students who will be attending the college. The enrolment scheme and zoning will support us to ensure stable staffing levels and appropriate building resources.

Students who are currently enrolled at Mount Maunganui College are not affected by these changes.

In-Zone Applications - Year 9 to Year 13

The enrolment scheme means that any student living within the Mount Maunganui College zone is eligible to enrol at the college.

The enrolment scheme also gives a right of enrolment to any sibling of a student who is/was enrolled at Mount Maunganui College as at 27 September 2021. This transitional provision applies for a period of five years from 27 September 2021.  Siblings covered by the transitional provision will be considered in-zone students and will only need to complete an in-zone application form.

​​​​​​​2023 OUT OF ZONE APPLICATIONS - INFORMATION TO COME


2022 Out of Zone Applications - Year 9 to Year 13 (Separate Ballots)

Mount Maunganui College will be accepting a small number of out of zone enrolments for 2022 at selected year levels. These numbers are an estimate, and the school has the right to review this allocation depending on changes to expected in-zone enrolment numbers.

Out of zone enrolments will be based on an order of priority set for all schools by the Ministry of Education. The order is as follows:

  • First priority will be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school and approved by the Secretary for Education. This priority category is not applicable to Mount Maunganui College because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary.
  • Second priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.  The enrolment scheme gives right of enrolment to any sibling of a student who is / was enrolled at Mount Maunganui College as at 27 September 2021. This transitional provision applies for a period of five years from 27 September 2021.  Siblings covered by the transitional provision will be considered in-zone students and will only need to complete an in-zone application form.
  • Third priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
  • Fourth priority will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
  • Fifth priority will be given to applicants who are children of employees of the school’s Board of Members.
  • Sixth priority will be given to all other students who live outside the school zone and who wish to attend this College.
