Liston College Navigation


Our commitment at Liston College is authentic as we strive to make young men of authenticity - authentic in faith, character and aspiration. For boys, community is oxygen and your sons will find at Liston College that community is cherished – the strength of it, the wholeness of it, and the blessings that comes with it. We welcome the enrolment of your son into Liston College.

Liston College caters for boys in Year 7-13. We accept students primarily in Year 7. Enrolment at other levels is subject to availability. In line with our commitment to the Special Character of Liston College and the Integrated Schools agreement between the Ministry of Education and the Catholic Diocese of Auckland, 95% or more of our students are from a preference background. Applications are open the year before your son is due to start.

The College, in its Integration Agreement with the Government, has two categories of enrolment:

  • Preference
  • Non-preference.

Preference enrolment is given to those students whose parents have established a particular or general religious connection with the Special Character of the College. A completed and signed Preference Certificate must be obtained from your parish Priest before submitting an online enrolment.

A non-preference enrolment may be granted to those who cannot produce a Preference Certificate. The College has a limited number places for non-preference students. Non-preference places are allocated at the discretion of the Principal.
