Halcombe School Enrolment Scheme
Halcombe School has an Enrolment Scheme to manage its growing roll. The Enrolment Scheme determines who can enrol at the school each year. A description and map of the Halcombe School "Home Zone" are available to download and copies are also available at the Office.  All students who live within the home zone are entitled to enrol at the school. 

Out of Zone Enrolments: 
Each year the Board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. This will be notified in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received. Priority is given in the following order to applicants who: 
* are a sibling of a current student
* are a sibling of a former student
* are the child of a former student
* are the child of an employee of the school or the child of a member of the Board
* all others.
