Lower School Day (Boys and Girls, 11-14yrs)

Forbes was created in October 1989 in order to cater for the growing number of Lower School day pupils and now houses some 60 boys and girls. It was named in recognition of the service given to the school by Donald Forbes, Head Master of Dauntsey's from 1956 to 1969.

Forbes can be found on the main School site alongside the other two Lower School Houses in the Lower School Centre. Forbes House is particularly proud of its achievements in the annual inter-house Lower School Music Competition, winning this title five years running.
