2023 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 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.

The residential address given will be entered on our database under Caregiver 1 and must be the student's usual place of residence. The burden of proof rests with the student's caregiver(s) - refer to Section 247 of the Education and Training Act 2020.
