Ballots for places for out of zone students:

The order of priority in which applicants who live outside a school’s home zone are to be offered places at the school is as follows:
(a) first priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school (not applicable as Hutt Valley School does not have a special programme);
(b) second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school;
(c) third priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a former student of the school;
(d) fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school;
(e) fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of an employee of the Board of the school;
(f) sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.

If the number of out of zone applicants exceeds the places available, students will be selected by ballot (except in the case of special programmes, where the criteria in the enrolment scheme apply). If a ballot is required for Year 9 students that ballot will be held on Monday 1 August 2022. Parents will be informed of the outcome of that ballot within three school days of the ballot being held. Parents will have 14 days to respond to any offer of a place. If a ballot is required for Years 10 to 13 students that ballot will be held on Friday 21 October 2022 and parents will be informed of the outcome within three schooldays of the ballot being held.
