Kelston Intermediate, Boys’ High School and Girls’ College

New Enrolment Scheme

Overview – what is happening?

The Ministry of Education is developing enrolment schemes for Kelston Intermediate, Boys’ High School and Girls’ College, which will be in effect for the beginning of term 1 in 2022.  Having an enrolment scheme in place will ensure the Board of Trustees have a fair and transparent mechanism to manage the schools’ rolls as they grow. Children that live within this area will have entitlement to enrol at Kelston Intermediate, Boys’ High School and Girls’ College. The schools operate independently, but are consulting on the same enrolment scheme area for all three schools.

What does this mean for my family?

If you live in enrolment scheme home areas for Kelston Intermediate, Boys’ High School and Girls’ College, you will be entitled to enrol your child at the schools. This entitlement applies to new students starting school, as well as any intermediate and secondary school aged children currently attending another school in the area. 

Families who live outside the enrolment scheme home zone of Kelston Intermediate, Boys’ High School and Girls’ College do not have entitlement to enrol and could only attend if the Boards of Trustees planned to enrol any out of zone students. The enrolment schemes will establish the process for this, and places will only be available if the Boards of Trustees considers it has the capacity to allow for this.  Further information about whether any out of zone places will be made available by the individual school will be made later in 2021.
