Who is eligible

Who is eligible?

We cater for school age students who due to illness, accident or mental health, have been or are expected to have significant absence from their regular school.

Students will need to be enrolled at a New Zealand school.  They will continue to be on the roll of their regular school while they are working with our teachers and as their medical situation improves will then be assisted with the transition back to their regular school. Admission to Northern Health School does not affect any existing enrolment arrangements.
