When a school is at or close to capacity, the potential for overcrowding needs to be addressed. Enrolment schemes help manage overcrowding and ensure local students can attend schools in their area.
New Zealand’s 2,500 schools make up the network of schools. We look after all state and state-integrated schools in 10 regions across the country, and each region has smaller local networks of schools.
Different parts of New Zealand are growing and changing in different ways.
