Message from the Head of Senior Campus

At the Senior Campus in Epsom, our 340 Year 10 to Year 13 students are encouraged to challenge themselves in all they do and become the best they can possibly be. 

The Senior Campus experience takes place at an important time in each student’s emotional development as they transition from boyhood to manhood, providing every opportunity for boys to develop into fine young men.

While maintaining high expectations and standards, it is appropriate to recognise this transition with greater freedom and independence being offered. 

Students are expected to take on more responsibility for their learning and are held accountable. Our academic results are outstanding. In 2021, 100% of our students achieved NCEA Level 3.

Robust academic programmes, with a maximum class size of 24, are complemented by an emphasis on pastoral care, stability and guidance 24 hours a day. 

Students are also able to pursue many opportunities in sport, art, culture, music and more. The campus is a supportive environment where tradition is valued and a strong sense of community is instilled. 

Their time at the Senior Campus is about preparing them for life beyond Dilworth. The academic success enjoyed is an important factor in creating self-belief, which opens up a world of possibilities. Input from staff ensures that each student has a clear pathway to follow when their secondary schooling come to an end.

The vision of our founder was that every boy would go on to make a positive contribution as a good and useful member of society. The young men that leave our gates at the end of their Dilworth journey are testament to the success of this vision.
