General Enrolment Information 2021 – Year 9 to Year 13

Tauranga Boys’ College has an Enrolment Scheme in place, and election for entry to the school is based on the Ministry of Education enrolment regulations. It enrols students according to the provisions of Section 11D of the Education Act 1989 and Education Amendment Act (No 3).  

 

General In-zone Applications 2021

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
  • Proof of residence in the school zone.  This can be either a sale and purchase agreement, a long-term tenancy agreement or a household power, telephone, rates account that clearly shows the account holder’s name (parent/caregiver’s name) and address.

An 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.
