Enrolling at Wellesley

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your son(s) at Wellesley. We encourage whānau and friends to visit our school at any time or to join us during our Discovery Days to get a true feel for our wonderful environment. Simply contact our Enrolments Registrar, Karen Reid, who will arrange a personal visit at a time that suits you.

Applications for admission are accepted throughout the year. The main entry points into Wellesley are Years 1, 4 and 7, however places do become available at other year levels.

We recommend you place your son on the waiting list to ensure you are contacted accordingly. Simply complete the Application Form below.

All applications require you to forward a copy of your son’s birth certificate, his most recent school report, the non-refundable application fee of $100.00 and, if applicable, evidence of your son’s New Zealand residency status.  These can be emailed to office@wellesley.school.nz or posted to PO Box 41037, Easbourne, Lower Hutt 5047.

Once your son is on the waiting list, we will contact you about upcoming Discovery Days and other events which may be of interest.

In the year prior to your son’s preferred year of joining, you will be invited to meet with the Principal and take a tour of the school.  Following this, if spaces exist, you will be offered a confirmed place in writing. At this point, a confirmation fee becomes payable and both parents/guardians are required to complete and sign an enrolment data form.

For more information about enrolment email the Principal’s EA,  Karen Reid  or  call (04) 562 8030 ext 802.

Receipt of your application will be acknowledged via email.
