How can we help you?

Would you like us to notify you about upcoming Open Days or Scholarships? Perhaps you have a general enquiry we could help with? Add your details to our simple enquiry form and we will be in touch. 

Ready to Apply?

Our applications at Marsden Karori are open year round as we often have international students and families from out of town and overseas join us. For entry into the next calendar year, we recommend you apply by the end of June, to assist us in class planning. You can also apply now if your daughter is joining us beyond next year.  


Start the process of enrolling at Marsden Karori by completing the easy online Application form below. We will then be in touch to organise an interview with either Principal Narelle Umbers or our Director of Primary.  Following this interview, you will be required to complete our full enrolment documentation. Welcome to Marsden!



Still deciding? Arrange a personal tour

Arrange a personal tour to help you appreciate the Marsden difference. Our Enrolment Registrar will be delighted to talk to you about your child's needs and arrange a personal tour at a time to suit.
