To receive an enrolment pack you can call, email or come into the school office. The enrolment pack includes the school Prospectus, and all the forms you need to complete to enrol your child at Waimate High School. We would be happy to show you around the school and should you want this, just ring in advance so we can have a staff member available. All the enrolments forms need to be completed and returned to the school office. An enrolment interview will take place with the Principal or a senior member of staff. A time for this can be arranged through the school office. Subject choices and any other questions or issues can be discussed at this interview.

Text Books

Texts are issued on loan to all students. They are a cost to the Board of Trustees and so books that are damaged or lost must be paid for by the students concerned.



We encourage our students to be proud of their uniform and to wear it appropriately. A uniform shop runs on-site, selling new and second-hand uniforms. Refer Uniform Requirements.
