Children who permanently reside at a street address within the enrolment zone defined below are entitled to enrol at Beckenham Te Kura o Pūroto. If your children live in the school’s enrolment zone and you would like them to be enrolled, please download the enrolment form, complete it and return it to the school office.
Please check your home address on the educationcounts.govt.nz/find-school website to ensure you are in our school zone.
From 1 January 2021, the following Home Zone applies:
Starting from the intersection of Sandwich Road and Waimea Terrace,
- South along Waimea Terrace to Eastern Terrace
- East along Estern Terrace to the Bowenvale Avenue bridge
- South over the bridge to Centaurus Road
- North East along Centaurus Road to Major Aitken Drive
- Includes all addresses on Major Aitken Drive to Huntsbury Avenue, all addresses on Kenmure Drive and Swanton Drive, and all addresses on the cul-de-sac roads accessed from Major Aitken Drive, Kenmure Drive and Swanton Drive.
- North East along Centaurus Road to St Martins Road
- Includes all addresses accessed from Whaka Terrace, Woodlau Rise, Sepia Lane, and Austin Kirk Lane
- North along St Martins Road to Burnbrae Street
- West along Burnbrae Street to Riverlaw Terrace

Addresses on both sides of boundary roads are considered in-zone unless specified otherwise.
For families of currently enrolled students whose addresses become “out of zone” due to this amendment to the enrolment scheme home zone: they shall be deemed to be “in-zone”, but only for as long as they contain children who, at the time of enrolment, are the siblings of current students.
The School office holds a list of such families if you are not sure of your situation.
NB This is a very tightly defined concession. It would not apply to:
- Children of parents who move in to any of these addresses subsequent to the adoption of the enrolment scheme boundary amendment; and
- Children of parents currently living at one of the addresses who move out of the address subsequent to the adoption of the enrolment scheme boundary amendment.
Section 11E of the Education Act 1989 states that “a state school’s home zone must be defined by geographic boundaries, and must be described in such a way that any given address is either within or outside the home zone.” The list above is defining a location as “in-zone” unless dictated otherwise by the exceptions outlined in A and B above.
Out of Zone Enrolments
Enrolment of children who live outside the above geographic zone is governed by the requirements of Section 11F of the Education Act 1989, and instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11F of the Education Act 1989.
The number of places will be determined by the Board of Trustees on the basis of current and projected class numbers and school roll. To manage our roll, we are currently not taking any out of zone students unless they will be siblings of a current student in the year that they start school.
If you would like to apply for a place through our ballot system for a sibling of a student who is currently attending, please download the ballot application form (which includes on the second page the application cut-off dates), complete it and return it to the school office.
