Information for Enquiring Families
Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website. In this section you will find more information with regards to our enrolment process. You would also be most welcome to download our information pack that contains our prospectus, enrolment form and the like from this area of the site.
International student enquiries are referred to the International section of our website.
How does the enrolment process at Hamilton Christian School work?
Most enquiring families start by contacting the school to arrange a time to have a tour of the school and meet the Principal, or attend an Open Day.
Please call the school on 07 854 0010 to arrange a time to visit the school, ask questions or request an information pack.
Should a family then wish to enrol with us, they complete the enrolment forms and submit the following:
- Pastor’s Letter/ Letter of Reference
A letter from a Pastor/ elder in the church you attend, attesting to your commitment to the Christian faith.
- Recent school reports
- Complete the Medical information form
- Sign our Statement of Faith.
- Enrolment Fee
$100 for one child; $200 for two or more children. Payable via online banking or by cash/cheque at our school office. Please note that we do not have EFTPOS facilities. Please visit our Fees page for more information on our enrolment fee and other school fees.
Please note that sibling enrolments only require the completion of our sibling enrolment form.
Once we have received this information, the enrolment is processed by the office. Within a week or so after receiving your forms, we will contact you to arrange a time for your family to meet with the school principal for your enrolment interview. During this meeting, you will also have the opportunity to ask the principal any further questions you may have.
Does Hamilton Christian School accept non-Christian families?
You would be most welcome to submit an application. Should you not wish to sign our Statement of Faith or submit a letter of reference from a pastor, please discuss this with our office staff. The principal will then discuss available spaces with you during your enrolment interview.
Are there scholarships available?
Please feel free to discuss your financial needs with our principal during your enrolment interview. You may also wish to view information on the Aspire Scholarship, made available by the NZ Ministry of Education, should you be applying for a child in Year 9 or 10.
Should you have any more questions about our enrolment process, or about our school in general, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
