Preparatory School

Students in Years 1–8

In most years, and at most year levels, the number of applicants for our Preparatory School exceeds the spaces available. When this occurs, applicants are ranked in order of applying and those not immediately successful are wait-listed. Please note, siblings have priority for placement. To avoid disappointment we recommend you express your interest in enrolment as early as possible. Applications are welcomed at any time. However, most children are accepted during Term 2 (late April – early July) of the year prior to starting.

  1. Start the enrolment process by completing the appropriate application form and paying an application fee of $150.
  2. Upon receipt of your application, your details will be loaded into our database, to ensure you receive important information as the process progresses.
  3. No formal interview is required as part of the application process. However, it is best if you and your child meet with the Preparatory School Principal to discuss and view the school’s unique learning environment. Please email the Assistant to the Preparatory School Principal, Charlotte Penrose at CPE@stac.school.nz, to find a time that suits.
  4. If an offer of enrolment is made, we will ask you to confirm acceptance with a non-refundable acceptance fee of $400, plus a non-refundable bond/deposit of $1000.
