Enrolment Scheme

The Board of Trustees and the Ministry of Education acknowledge that the existing facilities at Epsom Girls Grammar School are likely to become overcrowded without an enrolment scheme. This scheme applies to all students who are applying for entry to Epsom Girls Grammar School.

Please refer to the description below of the geographic area for the boundary and to the detailed map and a complete list of streets in the home zone.

All residential addresses on included sides of boundary roads and all no exit roads off included sides of boundary roads are included in the zone unless otherwise stated.

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Each year, applications for enrolment for the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a specific date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulated in the area served by the school. This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Epsom House Students
Students accepted for Epsom House will have entry to Epsom Girls Grammar School as of right.

Out-of-Zone Enrolments

Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulated in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

  • First priority:  This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary.
  • Second priority: must be given to applicants who are siblings of current students. 
  • Third priority: must be given to applicants who are siblings of former students. 
  • Fourth priority: must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
  • Fifth priority: must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.
  • Sixth priority: must be given to all other applicants.

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary for Education under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.

Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.

Each year the Board of Trustees will:

  • Determine a period during which applications will be accepted for the following year
  • Develop procedures to be followed in the application process
  • Specify the information which parents may be required to supply in support of an application for enrolment for the following year

Applications will be accepted in terms of this scheme. The school retains the right to make all inquiries necessary to obtain information that may assist it to reach a decision in any particular case.
