For new entrants, living within the school zone, please complete the enrolment forms at the office anytime after the child's 4th birthday. The law states that your child may not start school prior to their 5th birthday.
*Please note: While holding a NZ visitor visas allow students short-term study in some New Zealand schools, currently Newmarket School Board only accepts enrolments of pupils with a students visa.
If you live within the school zone, there is an automatic right of enrolment with proof of address, once we have received your enrolment and other associated forms. School visits may be arranged for your child to visit the class and meet the teacher prior to starting school by telephoning the school office to arrange. A suggested day/time might be a Wednesday morning when the uniform shop is also open. You can then purchase the child's uniform and they can then go into class at bell time and stay until around morning tea time. View the school zone.
Out of Zone
Newmarket School is unable to accept Out of Zone applications at this time, due to the large expansion of housing in the central Newmarket area, which means we only have room for those living within the school zone. This is unlikely to change within the next few years. View the school zone.
