Since 2006, some students living overseas in English-speaking countries have not been eligible for enrolment.

Do you cater for children who have an exemption to be home schooled?
Yes, these children can be enrolled as full-time fee-paying students. We need to receive a copy of the Certificate of Exemption from the Ministry of Education with the enrolment.

How can I get a Certificate of Exemption to home school?
Discuss this with the principal of your student’s current school. Formal application needs to be made to your local Ministry of Education office.

What are the isolation criteria?
A student must live further than a certain distance from the nearest school, regardless of whether it is the school the student attends. The distance is measured over the shortest public road or walking route from the home roadside gate of the student to the nearest school. The full policy and distance requirements are in the New Zealand Gazette.

We live in a house truck. Are we eligible to enrol?
