The Longburn School community would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our future students and their families. We look forward to you joining our school community.
From the 1st of January 2022 we will be implementing a Ministry of Education approved Enrolment Scheme. Information in regards to our school zone and ballots is available from the school office on request.

Please contact our school office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 063551642) for an information pack and/or enrolment inquiries. You are welcome to visit and view our learning environment throughout the school term, giving you an opportunity to see us all in action.
The Principal is contactable via email email@example.com should prospective parents/caregivers require information out of school hours regarding enrolments.
Enrolment Scheme Information
The Longburn School Board of Trustees welcomes enrolment applications from parents who wish to enrol their children at Longburn School.
Enrolment at Longburn School is governed by a Ministry of Education approved enrolment scheme, details of which are available on the school website, the website Education Counts, or from the school office.
Our Enrolment Zone Map is available on this website via the 'new enrolments' tab.
If you are out of zone but wish for your child to attend Longburn School we encourage you to still lodge an enrolment application so that your child’s enrolment can be considered. The board has determined that there is likely to be 20 places available for out-of- zone students next year. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.
Next year there will be four enrolment periods. The first enrolment period is for Term 1, 2024 (29th January – 12th April) and runs from the first day of school in the new year to the last day of Term 1.
For students seeking enrolment within the first enrolment period, the deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is October 13, 2023. Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the next year should also notify the school by October 13, 2023 to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year. Pre-enrolments can be made online via the school website.
If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot for out-of-zone places is required, it will be held on October 26, 2023. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
