Enrolment at Milford School is governed by a Ministry of Education approved enrolment scheme, which includes a zone that is set out below. A full copy of the enrolment scheme can be viewed at the school office.
The Education Act sets out the purposes of an enrolment scheme, which are to prevent overcrowding at the school, to ensure that the selection of applicants for enrolment at the school is fair and to ensure that the best use is made of existing networks of State schools. Students living within the Milford School zone have automatic right of entry under the scheme.
Students living outside of the Milford School zone will have another school that is reasonably convenient to their place of residence that they will be entitled to attend. You can find information about the location of other schools and their enrolment zones at http://nzschools.tki.org.nz/.
Out of zone students wishing to attend Milford School can apply to enrol if/when the school holds a ballot. (See the section on out-of-zone enrolments below).
Milford School starts our New Entrant students (5-year-olds) in groups on the Monday of Week 1, 4 or 7 of the term, whichever falls after their fifth birthday.
