Message from the Acting Principal

Dilworth is a school like no other. James and Isabella Dilworth’s vision to educate young men to become "good and useful members of society" is our guiding motivation and is at the centre of everything we do. The Dilworth journey is a partnership between students, their parents, their caregivers and the school. We work together, to help each boy reach his potential.

From their first day at Dilworth to their last, our committed staff endeavour to teach, encourage and care for each student in many different ways and in a wide variety of different situations.

At our school, academic success and wellbeing go hand in hand. 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.

We are proud of what our students achieve. Our academic results are stellar and boys are achieving extraordinarily well in sport, music, cultural activities and in all aspects of school life.

We also have a strong focus on preparing them for life beyond Dilworth, by providing life skills
and support for future study. Dilworth really makes a difference.

Message from the Chairman

Aaron Snodgrass.jpg

Thanks to the remarkable generosity of our founders, Dilworth School has been able to provide a first-class education to more than 5,000 boys, since 1906.

We see the results of James and Isabella Dilworth’s legacy in the students who are making the most of the opportunities here and in those who have left our school and gone on to achieve their dreams.

The purpose of the Dilworth Trust Board is to ensure this legacy continues in line with the wishes of our founders. The board has the dual purpose of both governing and funding Dilworth School. We 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.

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

Aaron Snodgrass
Dilworth Trust Board
