How to Enrol

“For each learner, the school community will provide quality learning, opportunities that encourage Christian perspectives, and affirm Biblical principles.”

Wellington Hills Christian College is birthed from Miramar Christian School, which was founded in 1979, by a group of families at Gateway Baptist Church, Miramar, committed to the vision of Christian education that would equip young people for a life of service to God and the community.
Wellington Hills Christian College is an integrated Christian school. As an integrated school it receives government funding for staffing and daily operations while the land and buildings are owned by Peniel Land Trust. The New Zealand Christian Proprietors Trust (NZCPT) are the school proprietor and hold the Integration Agreement with the Ministry of Education. This Agreement allows our school to be an integrated school. The Proprietor charges attendance dues to meet the cost of maintenance and building programs. These fees are mandatory and enrolment at our school is conditional on payment of these fees. The NZCPT is also required by law to supervise and maintain the Christian character of our school.

Preference enrolments 

The Education and Training Act 2020 requires our school to provide priority enrolment to preference students. At Wellington Hills Christian College, our
Integration Agreement allows us to have up to 5% ‘non-preference’ students. These are families where parents have no particular or general connection with Christianity, but appreciate the values and beliefs of the school and wish their children to receive the education we offer.
