Information

We are delighted that you are considering Hamilton Christian School for your child’s education. Our school is a co-educational Year 1 - 13 state-integrated Christian school. 

Keys Dates:

We have two reviews of our enrolment numbers for the following year, typically these are mid-year and towards the end of Term 3. The review dates are as follows:

  • 1st review of numbers will be done in Week 1 of Term 3
  • 2nd review of numbers will be done in Week 8 of Term 3

Notification of acceptance or non-acceptance will be sent to families after the review process mentioned above has been completed (typically within a week). If your child has not been accepted for the coming year, he/she will be placed on our waiting list. 

We do, however, encourage enrolment applications throughout the year. All applications are subject to space availability and enrolment priority and are sorted in chronological order. 

Please feel free to contact us on enrolments@hamiltonchristian.school.nz should you have any queries.
