Students who live outside the home zone and within the Auckland City boundaries, and who are not currently enrolled at EGGS, may apply for out of zone places if a ballot is offered.
Applications for out of zone places for 2021 have now closed.
Applications for out of zone places for 2022 are open.
The Board of Trustees expects to be able to offer out of zone places for Year 9 to priority groups and a limited number of general applicants. At this stage we are unable to confirm the actual number of places available. The Board will decide on the number of available places for Year 9 students just before the ballot. They will decide this based on the number of applications from students who live within the School's home zone.
In past years we have usually been able to offer places in Years 10-13 to priority group applicants and to a small number of general applicants. The Board will decide on the number of places available for each year level just before the ballots. Unsuccessful applicants will be ranked in numerical order and placed on waiting lists. The Board will review availability in November and January.
The process we follow to select out of zone students is prescribed by legislation and is set out in our enrolment scheme.
Applicants will be processed in the following order of priority:
Applicants will be required to provide evidence to support their inclusion in a priority group.
If there are more applicants than there are places available, we will use a ballot to randomly select students in the priority group to fill the places. Unsuccessful applicants will be ranked in their numerical order and put on a waiting list. Ballots are conducted under the supervision of a qualified solicitor.
Due to the large number of out of zone applications received and the limited number of places available, many applicants are unsuccessful in the ballot. It is important that you also apply to your local school for enrolment.
