Chairman & Principal

The vision of James and Isabella Dilworth has enabled the transformation of the lives of more than 5,000 young men and their families. 


We are proud of our founders. Their legacy continues with each Dilworth boy that has left our school and gone on to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.


The Dilworth Trust Board has the dual purpose of both governing and funding Dilworth School.  Trustees are focused on growing the business of the trust so we can provide more and better opportunities now and for generations of students to come. We are equally focused on ensuring Dilworth students are educated to the highest standard in a caring, Christian environment.

Our school has a proud history and exciting plans for the future ahead. We have a strong and committed community including students, parents, Old Boys, friends and staff. I feel very privileged to be contributing to the Dilworth legacy and being a part of what we can achieve together.

- Aaron Snodgrass, Chairman, Dilworth Trust Board

The selection of a boy for a Dilworth scholarship begins a journey for the student and his family, which often lasts for at least seven years. During that time, staff at Dilworth School endeavour to teach, encourage and care for the student in many different ways, and in a wide variety of different situations.

The wish of the Founders, to educate young people to become "good and useful members of society" is a guiding motivation at the centre of everything we do. The Anglican foundation of the School, with Christian Education programmes in Chapel and classrooms, provides a strong framework of faith and values for the present and the future.

The Rural Campus provides a year of blended outdoor education and traditional curriculum for all Year 9 boys.

Dilworth provides real skills for life, as well as excellent qualifications and support for future study.

Dilworth really makes a difference.

- Neil Ritchie, Acting Principal, Dilworth School
