Welcome to our new pupils

As 190 new pupils join Dauntsey’s this week we extend a special welcome to the youngest pupils. Our new First Form pupils will put on their uniforms for the very first time this afternoon to attend House Receptions where they will meet their House staff and fellow Housemates. An induction morning follows on Thursday before term gets underway for everyone on Friday.

Every new pupil at Dauntsey’s is assigned a buddy who provides a friendly point of contact on the first day and is there to offer support and advice over the early weeks.

Please watch the short film below for a taste of daily life in the Lower School.

Six days a week, buses bring day pupils from across Wiltshire (and beyond) to school. Home for our younger boarders is the Manor, a welcoming Victorian mansion set in 65 acres of grounds and ancient woodland. They start their day with a short bus journey or walk to school and return once lessons have finished for homework, supper, games, relaxing, and bed.

Please follow us on Twitter – it is a great way of keeping in touch with events and activities at School.
