We are a secondary school in Upper Hutt, New Zealand, located 30km from Wellington CBD - the capital city of New Zealand. We have over 700 students, both boys and girls, ranging in age from 12 to 18 years. The school is situated in the picturesque Hutt River valley.
Heretaunga College holds its own with New Zealand's best secondary schools. Not only do we offer an excellent education, but we believe our leadership, staff, facilities and programmes are also first class.
Heretaunga College focuses on the individual worth of each person and we make efforts to keep the environment caring and student-centred.
Enrolment Scheme - Home Zone
In order to avoid overcrowding, or the likelihood of overcrowding, the board of Heretaunga College has adopted an enrolment scheme which has been approved by the Ministry of Education.
Under this scheme, students will be entitled to be enrolled if they live within the home zone.
The enrolment scheme, which includes a precise description of the home zone, may be viewed on our school website www.heretaunga.school.nz or at the school office where copies of the scheme are also available.
The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education Act 1989.
If you live in the home zone and have not yet signalled your intention to enrol your child for 2020, then please contact the school immediately to assist us in our planning.
The enrolment scheme for Heretaunga College will take effect from 17 February 2020.
