Enrolment information

We welcome new enrolments at Ridgway School from families living within our home zone. For general enquiries about enrolment, please email office@ridgway.school.nz.

Ridgway School's home zone* includes Kingston, Mornington, most of Vogeltown and the southern end of Brooklyn. We invite families living in these areas to enrol with us and join our Ridgway community.


- French speaking families who value bilingual education (French and English) but live outside of our zone may apply for a place in our bilingual class. See our Ruru La Chouette page for more detail.

To enrol your child at Ridgway School in either our mainstream classes or in our French-English bilingual class, send a completed enrolment form to the office. Enrolment forms may be downloaded or collected from the school.

*Enrolment Scheme and home zone effective from January 2021.


Please note; enrolment is not complete until proof of residence** within our Home Zone, child's birth certificate and immunisation certificate have been sighted by our enrolment officer.

**Proof of residence = all pages of most recent electricity account, or telephone (landline), or broadband account, or WCC rates notice, or tenancy agreement, showing the address in the name of one parent or caregiver


We encourage children approaching school age (at around 4 years 10 months) to make an in class school visit with their parent or caregiver. This visit is beneficial for helping children become familiar with school, and for parents to get to know the school and teachers. When we have received your enrolment form, you can then book a pre-school visit by contacting the school office (04 939 8771 or office@ridgway.school.nz).

These visits are only on Tuesday's during Week 2 (except in term 1), Week 4, Week 6 and Week 8 of each term, 10am to 11am. It's a good idea to bring a small snack of either a piece of fruit or vegetable, as our learners have a fruit break at 10am.

Please note that the parent or caregiver must be on site during these visits
