The Application Process

Thank You & Welcome

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at KingsGate School. We trust that you will find the enrolment process easy and engaging. Please read the information below carefully as it explains the steps you must take to enrol your child at KingsGate School. 

Important Note: 

1. Attendance Dues: KingsGate School is a state-integrated school. This means that there is a requirement for families of students attending KingsGate to pay attendance dues to NZCPT, the school's proprietor. The attendance dues are currently $1,895 per year for each child. 

2. Special Character Donation: As a State-Integrated school the government do not pay for any of our Christian character resources that the children use in the classroom. We would encourage you. where your financial situation allows you, to make a donation to NZCPT so that our school has access to quality Christian resources. Although any amount is welcome it is suggested that $460 over months is preferred. This is simply included in your Direct Debit amount if you feel that you are able to make the donation.
