Approved by the Ministry of Education on 15 August 2002; and adopted by the Board of Trustees of Auckland Grammar School on 15 August 2002.

1. The Secretary of the Ministry of Education (“the Secretary”) has given written notice that there is, or is likely to be, overcrowding at Auckland Grammar School ("the School") unless an enrolment scheme applies in terms of Section 11 A to 11 PA of the Education Act 1989.

2. Home Zone ("the home zone")

2.1 The home zone of the School is:

a) As described in Schedule I hereto; and

b) As shown in the map which is Schedule II hereto.

2.2 Subject to the provisions of the Education Act 1989, any boy of secondary school age who applies for enrolment at the School ("an applicant") and who lives in the home zone is entitled to enrol at the School.

2.3 Any student accepted for a place at the School's boarding hostel is deemed to be an applicant who lives within the home zone.

3. Selection of applicants who live outside home zone

3.1 Each year the Board of Trustees of the School shall give notice of:

a) The likely number of out-of-zone places to be offered by the School; and

b) The significant pre-enrolment dates and procedures; and

c) The date or dates on which any ballot will be held, as referred to in paragraph 3.5 below.

3.2 Notice pursuant to paragraph 3.1 above shall be published in a daily and/or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the School.

3.4 The order of priority in which applicants who live outside the home zone shall be offered places at the School as follows:

a) First priority shall be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the School (as defined in Section 11 B of the Education Act 1989). This priority group is not applicable to the School because the School does not run any special programmes as defined in Section 11 B of the Education Act 1989.

c) Third priority shall be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a former student of the School.

3.5 If there are more applicants in the priority groups than there are places available, selection shall be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11 G of the Education Act 1989.
