Year ended 1 July 2017, number of students
Homeschooling: In New Zealand, all children aged between 6 and 16 years of age are required to enrol in and attend a registered school. Home education (or homeschooling) is where parents or legal guardians take responsibility for the education of their children, instead of enrolling them in school.
Numbers are sourced from the Ministry of Education's Homeschooling database and for the year ending 1 July.
Students enrolled at Te Kura (The Correspondence School) are not included in the homeschooling numbers.
