Charitable Giving

Dauntsey's is proud of the great work and the large amounts raised by pupils. Every September, the entire School community votes to adopt a charity for the academic year, with national and international charities being considered on alternate years.

A  Charity Committee organise numerous activities throughout the year to raise funds for the chosen charity. From a cake sale to a canoe marathon, imaginative fundraising activities provide a positive focus and opportunity for pupils to come together for a common purpose to support other communities, both locally and further afield.

  • 2015/2016 Malaria No More £13,500
