Our School | Enrolment

Sandspit Road School operates a cohort entry for 5 year olds.  Cohort entry is when new entrants start school in groups through the year rather than on their fifth birthday.  New entrants are able to start school only after they have turned five.  There are two entry points per term determined by the Ministry of Education.  Entry points are the first day of term and mid-point during the term.
