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.

 

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

All enrolments applications are processed at our enrolment evenings. Please attend one of these sessions with your child who is being enrolled at Howick College:

 

In-zone -  final session - Wednesday 16 August: 4-7pm

How does the enrolment evening work?

When you and your child arrive, please report to reception. Our staff and student hosts will welcome you and direct you to the staffroom and then on to the next available senior staff member who will meet with you and go over the enrolment form. We value these informal meetings as an opportunity to answer any questions you or your child may have. It also gives us a chance to meet our new students personally.

 

** please note: we like to meet every family who enrols at Howick College - our staff aim to keep the waiting time as short as possible.
