Mission Statement 

To implement the vision of James and Isabella Dilworth to support, educate, and train as many boys as possible, from families in straitened circumstances, to reach and maintain their full potential and become good and useful members of society.


Dilworth School was founded in accordance with the terms of the Will of early Auckland farmer and businessman,  Irish-born James Dilworth who died in 1894.

Dilworth provides an all round education for young men to live, learn, play sport and develop their performing skills, in a fully funded modern boarding school environment.

Boys have the opportunity to be involved in music, drama, kapahaka, outdoor education, sport, community service and many other activities normally paid for by parents.

Dilworth has transformed the lives of generations of young men whose circumstances mean they need a helping hand in life - especially in their education.
