Out-of-Zone Enrolments

Out-of-zone enrolment applications for 2019 have closed. The ballot for applications was conducted on 12 September, 2018. 

Due to increasing demand for places at Mount Albert Grammar School from families who live inside our school zone, the MAGS Board of Trustees reviewed the school’s out-of-zone priority list and decided that the 2018 out-of-zone ballot will be held only for siblings of current students (Priority 2) – a current student being one who is attending in 2019.


Each year, the Board of Trustees will determine the number of places that 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 circulating in the local area. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

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

First Priority
This priority is not applicable as this school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for Education.

Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
Fourth Priority will be given to an applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
Fifth Priority will be given to any applicants who are children of board employees.
Sixth Priority will be given to all other applicants.

If there are more applicants in the first, second, third, fourth or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary 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 sibling relationship.
