Enrolment Dates & Process

Enrolment Scheme

The Board of Trustees and staff of Wellington High School are committed to providing quality education for all students in the school. There is a manageable roll figure that is determined by the physical resources of the school. Above this, the quality of education delivered to the students is diminished. The enrolment scheme aims to avoid overcrowding by restricting the number of students enrolled at the school.
