Zone Review

Expansion of the Riccarton High School Zone

In recent months, the Board has been working with the Ministry of Education on a review of the Riccarton High School enrolment zone and we are now informing our community of a proposed amendment to the Riccarton High School enrolment scheme.

There are seven co-educational state secondary schools proposing new schemes or amendments to existing schemes, so we are co-ordinating consultation so that everyone has an opportunity to see what is proposed across Christchurch.

More information on this process can be found here: and an online survey to gather feedback can be found at:

It is important for us to consult our broader school community and we want to hear what you have to say about these changes. Riccarton High School will be hosting a community consultation meeting in the hall on Tuesday 26 March at 7:00pm and we encourage members of our community to attend if you have any questions or feedback.

Any written feedback can be directed to our Board Chair, Mr Alan Aitken.

The deadline for feedback is 12 April.

We are currently not taking any out-of-zone applications for the remainder of the 2019 school year. However, we will be following the usual process for the Year 9 intake for 2020 and carrying out a ballot for any available spaces.
