General In-zone Applications 2017

You need to live in the school zone to attend Tauranga Boys’ College. If you live in-zone then your son is entitled to attend Tauranga Boys’ College.  Please request an in-zone enrolment pack from Tauranga Boys’ College.  You will need to complete the enrolment application and submit all supporting documentation.

  • A copy of your son’s birth certificate or passport
  • The most recent school report

A formal interview is an important part of the enrolment process - once Tauranga Boys’ College has received the enrolment application, a time will be set for the interview.
