KingsWay enrolment

Prior to Application

Please read the following points and collect all necessary documentation before starting the application form.

 

ENROLMENT PROCESS

1.  Complete the Enrolment Form and Attach Documents

The Enrolment Form is a confidential form in which we ask for information that will begin the process of enrolment for your child to attend KingsWay School.
Applications must be submitted complete with supporting documentation.

2.  Processing the Enrolment Form

Once the application is received, the Enrolment Officer will process the application and will send an acknowledgement of receipt. If the application is fully completed, your child will be placed on our waitlist as either a preferential or non-preferential applicant.

Standard procedure prevents us from being able to provide any details regarding our school waitlist as this is confidential information.

3.  The School's Consideration

To maintain the Special Christian Character of KingsWay School, priority is given to students whose families demonstrate a longstanding commitment to an evangelical church. Unfortunately if a family is unable to supply a Church Attestation there are only limited places available to non-preferential applicants due to the Ministry of Education guidelines for maintaining the Special Christian Character of KingsWay School.

When assessing applications for enrolment, each prospective student’s educational needs are considered and where necessary, further information may be requested.

Our school has a wait list for each year level, therefore, your child will be placed on our wait list. If we can confirm an interview for your child we will be in contact with you.

4.  Attend Enrolment Interview

The interview is an important step of the school’s final consideration of your child’s application. The interview is held by the respective Head of School (Junior, Middle & Senior) and also provides the opportunity to meet our staff and to ask any necessary questions. Parent partnership is an important aspect of our school and we expect the presence of both parents at this interview. Parents and students are expected to demonstrate a willingness and ability to support KingsWay School’s Parents Covenant and Statement of Faith.

5.  Offer of Place

If your child receives an offer of place, you will receive a Letter of Acceptance for KingsWay School and an Enrolment pack with documentation that you will need to complete. Your child’s enrolment will be subject to KingsWay School’s Conditions of Enrolment as set out in the enrolment pack.

6.  Acceptance of Offer

To secure a place for your child you will need to return the completed and signed Conditions of Enrolment Form and within two weeks of acceptance pay one terms fees in advance. In addition, the School Development Donation for each new family is required. Once we have received this payment and the signed Conditions of Enrolment form you have officially accepted you child’s offer of place and this becomes a legally binding contract between yourself and KingsWay School.
