Enrolling at Seven Oaks

Our enrolment process is designed to help determine if Seven Oaks is the best school for your child. To start the process, please contact us for a Registration of Interest form. We will then invite you to visit our school and meet the principal, Jeremy, at which point you can find out more about the school and ask any questions. Jeremy will show you around and explain our educational approach. You will then be invited to complete a formal Student Enrolment Form and proceed through our enrolment process.

The next step will be for your child to spend a trial day with us for a personal Seven Oaks experience and evaluation.

If we need to place your child on a waiting list, we will keep in touch with you via email newsletters and notices and will contact you when a space becomes available, to invite you to proceed with enrolment. If your child is under the age of four, registering your interest now will put your child higher up the waiting list. You will be placed on our database and will receive our email newsletters and notices. We will automatically contact you when your child reaches four to find out if you wish to proceed with enrolment.

o   If you don’t live in New Zealand and are interested in enrolling your child at Seven Oaks, please contact our Principal.

School fees

Our school fees are around 30% lower than most independent schools because we believe this kind of education should be accessible to more families. Fees cover all tuition costs, including stationery and most project materials. Non-compulsory outings such as swimming, skiing and camp, some options and personal project materials are invoiced separately. These typically add up to a few hundred dollars per student over the course of each year.

Seven Oaks School fees for primary and intermediate students

$9800 per year including GST

Arrowsmith Program

Class fees for full-time enrolled students:
$19,500 per year including GST
Class fees for full-time non-enrolled/adult students:
$19,990 per year including GST


A limited number of scholarships are available each year to students from lower income families, to assist with the cost of school fees.

For existing students, applications must be received by February 19th each year. For prospective students, applications must be received within two weeks of confirmation of enrolment.

Specific income criteria and other conditions apply. As the fund is limited, some eligible applicants may not get a scholarship. All decisions will be made by the board at their sole discretion and will remain confidential. Personal information divulged in the application form will be used solely by the board members who are selected to consider applications and only for the purpose of considering the application.
