applying for Boarding

We welcome applications at anytime of the year.  Please click on the links below for the application process. An application for boarding is also an application for College enrolment and we will liaise with you on this process. The College's enrolment forms and curriculum information is available here.

There are several different types of boarding:

  • Short-term - this is available for current NCG students that may need short-term or casual overnight accommodation in Nelson. This could be for a number of reasons, for example, sports events or production evenings. To find out more about short-term boarding or to apply click here.

  • 5 or 7 day - this is for students that do not live locally, who are heavily involved in after-school activities or when travel times maybe large.

  • International students - we offer a home away from home for our international students. They get to live in our relaxed and friendly hostel which is located on the school campus. To find out more about international boarding click here.


Please contact Bec McEwan to discuss an application or to find out more about boarding.

International students should contact Mrs June Laird in the International Department at the College -

For enrolment in Years 7 & 8 please follow the application process for the Preparatory School and complete the Boarding Application form.
