Enrolment at Postgate School is governed by an enrolment scheme, which was adopted in 2013. 

Students who live within the “Postgate Zone”  (in-zone) are entitled to enrol at Postgate School. If you live "in zone" and intend enrolling your child for 2023, please complete an enrolment form at your earliest convenience to assist the school to plan appropriately for the 2023 school year.

Each year the board determines how many places are available for "out of zone" students in the following year. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school's home zone.  Applications from out of zone students will be processed in the following order of priority:

● First priority - special programmes, not applicable● Second priority - siblings of current students● Third priority - siblings of former students ● Fourth priority - child of a former student of the school ● Fifth priority - children of board members or board employees ● Sixth priority - all other applicants 

Enrolment forms and further information are available by contacting the school office (04-2359358 or  You will be contacted in due course by the New Entrant teaching team who will arrange class visits and a suitable start date.
