Important Information for Out of Zone Students Enrolling in 2019
School Donation and Textbook Bond
The School Donation for all out of zone applications is expected once you accept your offer of place at the school.
The textbook bond of $100 will also be payable once you accept your offer of place at the school. You can apply for a refund of the textbook bond within two years of your son leaving Westlake provided he officially signed out of school, returned all his textbooks and paid all monies owing to the school.
Please double-check you have all your supporting documents with you at the Out of Zone Interview Day. An enrolment application will only be processed when it is complete. An application is considered complete when all sections are answered and all certified supporting documents are received. Certified means that a copy of a document and its original are presented to a Justice of the Peace or Solicitor so that it can be verified as a true copy. Further documentation may be requested if necessary.

Out of Zone Enrolment – Years 10 to 13 (Ballot)
Closing date for Y10 – Y13 Enrolment Applications (for Ballot entry)
Applications received after 26th October cannot be included in the ballot for places in 2019
For out of zone students wishing to join our school in Years 10, 11, 12 or 13, we decide whether or not we will hold a ballot for entry every October. Our decision is based on what we know about the size of the year group in the coming year, the size of school, whether or not we have places available in both Cambridge (will only be available for Year 13 from 2019) and NCEA streams, and the likely availability of spaces in specific courses.
We therefore ask all prospective candidates for entry into Years 10 to 13 to complete the on-line enrolment application at the link below and submit it by 4pm on Friday 26th October 2018. Applicants will be informed in November 2018 whether a ballot will be held and whether or not they have been successful.
