In Zone App Form

Enrolment Form

Kerikeri High School's enrolment scheme is prescribed by the Education Act 1989 and provides for automatic entry to in-zone applicants i.e. those living in the Kerikeri High School geographic zone ( map | description | Ministry )
If there are remaining places available in a year level they are allocated as required by legislation in an annual ballot to out-of-zone applicants according to a schedule of priorities (see below).
