In-Zone Enrolments

If you live in our enrolment zone your child is eligible to attend the school. The map shows the area of our zone or you can scroll down to check the written description below.  If you live in the zone, you can complete your enrolment application online here. All you need is the school code (1381) and a valid email address. Once you've completed the online enrolment form, our office staff will get in touch in order to organise a visit to the school and a meeting with the Principal. At this time you will be required to bring proof of your address so that we can confirm that you are living in the school zone.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the school office on 09 8469288 or email reception@maps.school.nz. Giving the school as much notice as possible of any new enrolments enables us to ensure we are well prepared for new students arriving at the school.

Out-of-Zone Enrolments

Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school www.mtalbertprimary.school.nz 

The Mt Albert Primary School Board invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their sons and daughters at Mt Albert Primary School for Terms 1,2,3 and 4 of 2022.  The following places are likely to be available for out of zone students

  • Year 1: 20 places

The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone. If the number of out-of-zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone places is 4pm Tuesday 19th October 2021.  

Out of zone application forms can be collected from the school office: 6 Sainsbury Road, Mt Albert, Auckland (between 8.00am - 3.15pm).  The ballot if necessary will be held on Friday 22nd October 2021.

Parents of students who live within the home zone should also apply by this date to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year. Students who live in the home zone are entitled to enrol at the school.  

Applications from out of zone students will be processed in priority order and details of these can be found on the Ministry of Education website.  If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot.

Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
