It is likely that there will be two out-of-zone enrolment periods in 2021:   

The First out-of-zone enrolment period runs from 17th December 2020 - 30th June, 2021.  This process has now been completed.  

The Second out-of-zone enrolment period runs from 1st July, 2021 - 14th December, 2021 and is likely to be for New Entrant students whose 5th Birthday falls within this enrolment period.

Further Information will be placed in our school newsletters early in April 2021 and a notice will be placed in the Hamilton Press. 

 

If you wish to submit an out-of-zone enrolment, please complete an Enrolment Form (click on the below link) and return it to the School Office with the required eligibility documentation.

 Out-of-Zone Enrolment Form

Applications from out-of-zone students will be processed in the following in order of priority:

a) First Priority must be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in a special programme(s) run by the school and approved by the Secretary of Education*.

*  This priority is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Ministry of Education.

 

b) Second Priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school

 

c) Third Priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a former student of the school.

 

d) Fourth Priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

 

e) Fifth Priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the Board of the school, or a child of a member of the Board of the School.

 

f) Sixth Priority must be given to all other applicants.

 

If the number of out-of-zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot supervised by a Justice of the Peace, a Practicing Lawyer or a Police Officer in accordance under Section 11G (1) of the Education Act 1989.
