Dilworth Junior Campus to cease boarding school education for Years 5 & 6

The Dilworth Trust Board has recently made the decision to cease boarding school education and scholarships for Year 5 and 6 students. No new Year 5 enrolments will be accepted for 2021. No new Year 6 enrolments will be accepted for 2022. 

This decision has been contemplated by the Trust Board and senior staff at the school over a number of years. The decision has been made based on a number of rational and evidential factors. Not least of these is the steadily reducing interest in boarding school placements for these age groups, reflected in the very small number of Dilworth scholarships being awarded. The first entry point into Dilworth School from the start of the 2022 academic year will be Year 7.

Rest assured, this decision will have no impact on current Year 5 or 6 students and their scholarship or progression through Dilworth.

The Trust Board understands that this decision will cause disappointment, especially if you were intending to submit a Year 5 application for the 2021 academic year and/or a Year 6 application for the 2022 academic year. It is hoped that you will consider submitting a Year 7 application for consideration in the future, along with other applications for that level.
