How to Enrol

When you contact the school, please ask for Mrs Raylene Chamberlain who handles enrolment enquiries, or you are welcome to email us at office@sockburn.school.nz

The first point of contact at SockburnSchool for all enrolment enquiries is to the school executive officer, Mrs Raylene Chamberlain. She will then direct prospective parents / caregivers to the Principal, Mrs Heather Walkinshaw for a tour of the school.
For all New Entrant enrolments, the New Entrant teacher Mrs Jude Ingram is informed and opportunity is made for you to discuss the enrolment of your child directly with her.

An informative information pack is given to all families of New Entrants and gives guidance about what to do before entry to school to help your child settle in. It also gives information about Junior School programmes, uniform and stationery requirements and general school information.

We welcome children of all ages enrolling at our school. We value each child and the special talents they bring. Our Cool Schools programme especially helps older children moving from another school adjust and make the transition to a new school easier.

At this time, the school does not have an enrolment scheme in place that will limit enrolment of pupils. We do appreciate your pre-enrolment of intending pupils (this can be done well in advance for five year olds) as it assists in planning and organisation of classes.
