Ellis Robins is a public school, and as such it abides by the Ministry of Education policy and directives on learner recruitment that are issued from time to time.
The school normally gives first preference to the learners hailing or who graduated from the primary schools within its catchment area; Mabelreign-Marlborough-Avondale area.
Consideration of learners from outside the catchment area is made on a case-by-case basis. So it is important for the parent/guardian of the place seeker to visit the school in person. Admission into boarding schools is generally subject to government directives. It is also advisable to visit the school in person and enquire.
