The primary intake level at Hato Pāora College is Year 9, with spaces in other year levels as vacancies occur in both the school and the hostel.

Please view the Hato Pāora College enrolment preference criteria.

Note: Hato Pāora College is a Catholic integrated school therefore parents/caregivers must attest by signature that they are aware of and accept certain legal conditions of enrolment and continued attendance of their son/charge.
