Application process

Applications for Dilworth School in 2025 are now closed. 

Each year there are places available for Year 7 and 8 students at the Junior Campus and Year 9 to Year 12 at the Senior Campus. Our admissions process covers several stages: 

  • 1


    Applications for Dilworth scholarships for the 2025 academic year are now closed. The deadline for submitting an application was 30 June 2024. Each year there are up to 60 places for Year 7 students. There are also limited places available for Years 8 and above. For students entering at all year levels, the first step is to complete an application form when the student is in the year prior to the year they wish to start.

    Second stage

    Applications are reviewed as they are received. If the application is to proceed past the initial stage, the nominated referees may be contacted in writing as well as the boy’s current school. Once these reports are received, the application is reviewed again. We may also request further information at this stage of the applications process.

  • 3

    Initial Interview

    If the application is to proceed to the next stage, both the caregiver and the student will be invited to attend an initial interview with the Head of Admissions. These applications will then be considered for shortlisting.

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

    Final Interview

    Approximately a week later there will be a final interview for the candidate and applicant with Trustees of the Dilworth Trust Board and the Headmaster.

Submitting the application

The first step is completing an application form in the calendar year before 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.
