Police have arrested two more people in connection with historic sexual offending at Auckland's Dilworth School. 

A 71-year-old Levin man faces three charges in relation to indecency with boys and a 70-year-old man from Palmerston North has been charged with three counts of indecent assault and one charge of inducing a boy to do an indecent act.

Four other men have been arrested in connection with the abuse. Ross Douglas Browne, Rex McIntosh and two other men who have name suppression appeared at the Auckland High Court in January and pleaded not guilty to each charge.

Their trial is set for April and expected to last 12 weeks. 

They face dozens of charges, including indecent assault against a boy under 16 and some against boys under 12.

The police investigation into historical sexual offending dating back to the 1980s is continuing.

Police said on Wednesday the investigation team has spoken to more than 100 victims who were sexually abused while attending Dilworth School.

Detective Snr Sgt Geoff Baber says it's thanks to the assistance of the public and the victims that arrests have been made.

"I acknowledge those who have contacted police to date and continue to encourage anyone with information, and that hasn't spoken with us yet, to contact Operation Beverly on (09) 302 6624."
