Head Master's Welcome

When every school boasts about high academic standards and an excellent all-round education, choosing the right one for your children can be a challenge.

I believe that people, not buildings or facilities, are what make a good school great and I am proud to lead an exceptional team of teachers here at Dauntsey’s, who pass on their enthusiasm and love of their subject to pupils. However, there is more to Dauntsey’s – an energy, spirit, warmth and sense of community that is immediately palpable. Of course, academic work is at the heart of what we do. We also enjoy our glorious surroundings and all the facilities you’d expect. And we certainly offer an exceptional range of opportunities beyond the classroom, from sports and adventure to outstanding drama and music, clubs and academic societies.

However, our ultimate priority is the happiness and fulfillment of every person in our community. In our experience, if our pupils are happy, then success will follow.

I hope our website gives you a sense of what it’s like to be at Dauntsey’s and whether your son or daughter would be happy here. If you’d like to experience the School for yourself, please visit us. You’ll find open spaces and open minds.

Happiness and success are the two things that most parents put at the top of their wish list for their children. Here, we prioritise happiness. If our pupils – and our staff – are happy, success will follow.
