Enrolment process

Your Taranaki Diocesan Enrolment Journey

At Taranaki Dio we have a limited number of places available each year. This number is set by our integration agreement.

We currently have vacancies at various year levels. Please contact the enrolments officer on 06 765 5333 if you are interested in a place.

Step One

Apply Online

The first part of this process is to fill out the Application for Admission form below and send it back to our school.

Your application will be acknowledged by email, you will be placed on our mailing list to invite you to events such as open days and you will be contacted in the year prior to your daughter’s proposed enrolment.

Please note – that if you don’t receive an email acknowledgement from our Enrolment Officer within a week, please contact our school office directly.

Step Two


In the year prior to enrolment your daughter and her caregivers will be invited to attend an interview. You will be asked to bring her latest school report and her birth certificate. You will also have the opportunity to have a tour of the day school and the boarding facilities and to ask any questions about the enrolment process and general life of the school.

Step Three


You will receive a letter of acceptance from the school confirming whether your daughter will be offered a day girl or boarder placement the following year.

You can then begin planning her next exciting learning journey and will be supported by Sandra Collins our enrolment officer with all of the paperwork and uniform requirements. If your daughter will be a Year 9 on enrolment we will also supply details of the new girls day and sleepover for boarders which is held in November.
