International enrolment information can be found in the international section of this site.
Enrolment inquiries can be made in person at reception or by phoning 348 9826, ext 706.
Do you have a school zone?
Middleton Grange Zoning is determined relative to the boundaries of the other schools in the Christian School Network. At Year 10, pupils from these schools are encouraged to enrol at Middleton Grange for their NCEA years.
Click the image to the left to open a larger zone map. Where the zone boundary goes down the middle of a street, the ‘inside’ side of the street is included in our zone.
Do you have Open Days?
Open Day Tours are advertised in local newspapers and are held in May. Bookings are essential and open at the start of Term 2. Please call 03 348-9826 and follow the voice prompt for enrolment information.
When can I enrol my child?
Enrolment application forms for the next school year open around May 1st. Closing dates are on the forms, but as a general guideline applications for Years 7-13 must be received by the end of May-mid June and for Years 1-6 close at or near the end of August. Enrolment Forms can be downloaded from the link above, or requested at reception.
If you have a pre-schooler you need to enrol them between May and August in the year before they turn 5. We do not have a waiting list for these children, nor are they given preferential entry if they attend Cornerstone Christian Early Learning Centres (link is external).
Why is there an application process rather than an enrolment process?
Our maximum school roll is governed by the Ministry of Education and for this reason we must limit the number of new pupils accepted into the school. Because we have a full roll, this unfortunately means that for many year levels we are only able to offer any places if another pupil leaves. We also cannot guarantee that places will be available to all children from one family in the same year. For more information on the selection process please click the Enrolment Information link above.
When will I know the outcome?
Letters are sent out in the school holidays following closure of the enrolment season i.e.July for Years 7-13 and October for Years 1-6.
There are three possible outcomes:
- Your child is offered a place. To secure the placement the enclosed acceptance slip must be signed by both parents (where applicable) and returned to the school, along with a deposit. If your child will be starting Year 1, 7, or 11, here is some useful information about starting at Middleton Grange.
- You are invited to add your name to the waiting list and we will be in touch with you if a place becomes available during the year.
- You are not offered a place for the next school year.
Can I reapply?
If your application is unsuccessful a new application must be made for every year you wish to be considered for a place.
You may wish to keep a copy of your answers to the key questions on the application form in order to reuse them if necessary.
Do you offer Scholarships?
In cases of financial difficulty, the Board offers a limited number of scholarships to new pupils applying for Years 7-13. Current Year 6 pupils may also apply for the scholarship during the Year 7-13 enrolment season. Each scholarship is worth half the annual fee per year, valid for two years. Completed Financial Scholarship applications must be returned with the enrolment application, but will only be processed after places have been offered and accepted.
Music Scholarship applications are invited from outstanding musicians who are current Year 8 pupils at Middleton, or applying for Year 9 from another school. Successful candidate/s receive $500 for 3 years and are required to play in the Orchestra and take Music as an option during that time. Completed applications must be returned by the closing date for the next year’s enrolments (usually mid-June).
Scholarship forms are available from reception, or email the school office.
