Enrol to Study at Howick College

Unlike other schools, we do not operate a postal enrolment system. We value the face to face enrolment meeting. 


The enrolment meeting - with senior staff - gives parents and students the opportunity to ask and discuss things in person. This is particularly useful for making known both special talents and interests or difficulties relating to learning which can then help us to better meet individual needs. 


Enrolment packs including forms and information will be distributed through contributing schools (Somerville Intermediate, Howick Intermediate, Beachlands School, Maraetai Beach School) and some local out-of-zone schools or are available from the school reception. Please feel free to contact us: phone 534-4492 or email reception@howick.school.nz to request an enrolment pack.


Enrolments for 2018:

In-zone- if you wish to enrol your child and live in-zone -  please contact the school office to arrange a suitable time to come in for an enrolment meeting.

Out-of-zone - We are unable to accept any further out-of-zone applications for 2018.


An example of the enrolment form is available to view here - however all applications must be submitted using the form provided by Howick College.
