Are you ready to begin your Rangi journey?

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School welcomes enquiries for enrolment for all year levels.

Enrolling your daughter at Rangi Ruru is the start of an exciting journey, and our dedicated Enrolments team are here to assist you and your daughter every step of the way.

Years 7 & 9 are our two main intake levels, however girls can enrol to start at Rangi at any year, from Year 7 – 13 as places allow.

Applying for Enrolment
For all enrolments, both day and boarding, it is recommended that you submit an application at least two years prior to entry. You can apply to enrol your daughter at anytime from birth. Please note that an application to enrol does not guarantee placement in the school but will add your daughter to the enrolment waitlist.

You will be invited to start the formal enrolment process approximately one year prior to your daughter’s start date, which includes an interview with the Principal. These interviews will be prioritised according to our enrolment guidelines. If an offer of a place is made following the interview, payment of the confirmation fee will confirm your daughters place at Rangi Ruru.

2022 Enrolments
Enrolments are closed for 2022 and the school roll is full. We welcome applications for the waitlist and would contact you should a place become available to commence the enrolment process – please contact our enrolments team should you wish to consider this option.

2023 Enrolments
Applications remain open for 2023, however we strongly encourage application at your earliest convenience. Invitations to book an enrolment interview with our Principal will be sent over the summer 2021/22.

2024 and beyond Enrolments
Applications are open for all years 2024 and beyond.

We work closely with families to ensure their daughter and the entire family feels welcome and supported. We are happy to answer any of your questions along the way. We look forward to welcoming you to the Rangi Family.
