Head Master's Welcome

Mark Lascelles, Dauntsey's Head Master. Dauntsey's Sixth Form

At Dauntsey’s, our ultimate priority is the happiness and fulfilment of everyone in our community. We want the pupils to do better here than they would anywhere else and, in our experience, when pupils are happy, success follows.  We aim to be a school where everyone can be themselves, where friendship and kindness really matter and where pupils make the most of their talents and abilities. 

Central to this ambition is our approach to adventure.  Adventure at Dauntsey’s is not simply an event but something that teaches invaluable life skills and changes attitudes and behaviour for the better.  This spirit of adventure reaches into the classroom where our teaching stretches and nurtures each individual pupil’s learning. 

We live in a fast-changing world and school must equip young adults with the resilience, intellectual curiosity and flexible thinking needed to thrive in life beyond the school gates, in the widest range of career paths.

We hope that our website gives you a feel for life at Dauntsey’s and reflects the pride we have in our pupils and staff.  If you would like to experience the school for yourself, please do get in touch.

Life in the Middle School

Joining the Middle School (Fourth and Fifth Form) at Dauntsey's is a pivotal moment in a pupil's life. 

Life in the Sixth Form

Moving up into Sixth Form is a key milestone in any pupil’s educational journey.  It is a step up academically, emotionally and socially and the Sixth Form offering at Dauntsey’s has been developed to reflect this.
