Message from the Head of Junior Campus

For many Dilworth students, their journey begins at our Junior Campus in Remuera. Here nearly 200 boys from Years 5 to 8 are introduced to boarding school life. 

What makes our school unique is that every boy is a boarder and their first important lesson is learning to get along with one another. We provide a nurturing and student-friendly campus supported by Christian values. More information is available in our Junior Campus Handbook

At the Junior Campus boys have everything they need to thrive. They’re looked after by our wonderful boarding house staff, who offer a helping hand whenever needed. In the words of one of our boys, “it really is a magic place”.

Our aim is to give each boy the chance to find his unique talents and strengths. We have specialist teachers and smaller class sizes, meaning more teachers are involved in a student’s education. This allows us to gain a broader view of each boy's performance and wellbeing so we can cater to their specific needs. 

We set high expectations and standards, but also encourage and reward success that comes from having a positive attitude and making meaningful effort. 

Our approach works because by the end of Year 8, most students are above standard in literacy and numeracy. Almost all of them are learning musical instruments, playing sports, making friends and learning good study habits to last them a lifetime.
