The enrolment process at Hastings Girls' High School is streamlined to support you and your daughter as she transitions into school.
We encourage new students and their whānau, to take a look at our curriculum and course selection information and then complete an enrolment form.
We know starting a new school can be challenging, at Hastings Girls' High School we work to make this as easy as possible, and to ensure that your daughter has the best start.
Our wrap around transition plan starts on receipt of the enrolment form. You will then be contacted later in Term 3 with enrolment confirmation and dates of interest.
All students are encouraged to apply for enrolment regardless of their place of permanent residence. We are extremely hopeful that we will be able to accommodate all applicants, however please be aware that there is currently a waitlist for Year 9 out of zone enrolments for 2022.
Hastings Girls’ High School has 85 out of zone places available for 2023.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Technology has a vital role in teaching and learning, and in our daily lives. We encourage our students to use technology effectively and responsibly.
In keeping with our Health, Safety, and Welfare policy, we maintain comprehensive cybersafety policies and procedures to guide our use of the internet and ICT devices and equipment. These include digital technology agreements, including a BYOD agreement if a personal digital device is brought to school for learning.
Students in years 9-13 may bring their own digital device to use at school to enhance their learning, provided that the following conditions are met:
- The student and their parent/caregiver must read and sign the BYOD agreement before a device is brought to school. This outlines the expectations and responsibilities of each party.
- The device is suitable for the purpose. It needs to be wifi capable, have a screen size no less than 7", and come to school fully charged.
- Parents record the serial number of the device, and are responsible for its insurance, servicing, repairs, etc.
- Parents are also responsible for ensuring that the device has an antivirus program installed (this is not necessary for Chromebooks), and for checking and updating any apps installed on the device.
If a student breaches the BYOD agreement, they may lose the privilege of bringing their own device to school, and the school's behaviour management strategies, responding to digital incidents, and/or surrender and retention of digital devices guidelines may be invoked, as appropriate.
In 2020 Hastings Girls' High School opted in to the Donations Scheme, which means parents, caregivers, and whānau never have to make a donation to school if they choose not to. If in the case of goods and services, a parent chooses to purchase supplies like pens for their child from the school, then they must pay as per agreed. We will not charge students for enrolment or attendance, or for the delivery of curriculum.
If your child is involved in weekend sports teams or after hours cultural activities (extra-curricular activities), these are optional. If you choose for your child to participate, you may be asked to cover the costs of these activities.
We may charge for sports trips that are outside the curriculum. Participation in these activities is optional, therefore we require payment where agreed that a student can participate. Any charge should be made in advance.
We may ask for a donation for an overnight camp – and then you can choose if you want to pay none, some or all of the donation. If you choose not to make a donation, your child cannot be stopped from attending a camp if it is part of the school’s core learning programme (curriculum).
You need to provide your child with a school uniform.
Lunch in Schools
We provide lunch to all students, as part of the MOE healthy school lunches programme. Our Chef and his team work hard to provide a healthy and nutritious lunch each day for our students and as such, although students can pack a lunch of their own choice, parents are not permitted to drop lunches to school, and students are not permitted to have food delivered to school.
