Online enrolment

All students enrolling at Long Bay College for 2021 are required to complete an online enrolment application which you can find here.  Please complete and submit the form, attaching the required documents.

Enrolment interviews

Following 2021 enrolment, all students and their caregivers are required to attend an enrolment interview. It is essential that the completed online enrolment form and accompanying documents are submitted prior to the enrolment interview.  All enrolment interviews will take place at Long Bay College by appointment. A staff member will meet with prospective students and their caregiver for approximately 15 minutes.  Please allow at least 30 minutes for the interview and to complete paperwork. To make an appointment, please email: office@lbc.school.nz
