Applications for Dilworth School are open between February and July each year for entry at the beginning of the following academic year.

Each year there are places available for Year 7 and 8 students at the Junior Campus and Year 9 and above at the Senior Campus.

Our admissions process covers several stages:

Submitting the application 

  • The first step is completing an application form a year prior to the intended start date.

You are strongly encouraged to submit your application as soon as possible, rather than waiting until near the closing date. 

No late applications are accepted. Applications will not be considered if submitted without the required documentation.

Admissions process 

You will receive an acknowledgement that your application has been received via email.

If the application is to proceed past the initial stage, your nominated referees will be contacted in writing and your boy’s current school will be contacted. Once these reports are received, the application is reviewed again.

If the application is to proceed to the next stage, both you and your boy will be invited to attend an initial interview with the Head of Admissions. These applications will then be considered for shortlisting in October each year.

Shortlisted candidates will spend a day at the relevant Dilworth campus. The day will include a tour, academic testing and some team-building games.

A week later there will be a final interview for the candidate and applicant with two Trustees of the Dilworth Trust Board and the Headmaster or the Head of Campus.
