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.
To avoid overcrowding, or the likelihood of overcrowding, the Board at Heretaunga College has implemented an amended enrolment scheme that has been developed and approved by the Secretary for Education. The enrolment scheme, which includes a precise description of the home zone, may be viewed on our school website.
We acknowledge your desire to enrol your child/children at Heretaunga College. However, due to the significant increase in our school roll; borne out of both a roll increase across the Upper Hutt Valley and our popularity as a preferred school, we are unable to accommodate students who reside beyond our current enrolment zone.
For the 2024 academic year, we will be running a Ballot for out-of-zone enrolments across Year 9 and Year 11 only.
Year 9 applications for out-of-zone placement in 2024 are now closed.
Closing date for applications for Year 11 out-of-zone placements in 2024 close on Monday 16 October 2023, 4pm.
We will NOT be accepting any out-of-zone enrolments for Year 10, Year 12 and Year 13 for 2024.
