International Candidates

Those whose first language is not English and who live overseas take our entrance examinations either at their agent's offices, their own school, or at British Council offices. Interviews are by arrangement, either in person during a visit following entrance exams, or via Microsoft Teams.

Fluency in English

In order to cope with the academic and social demands of being at Dauntsey's, candidates must have good spoken and written English. Ability in written and spoken English is tested as part of the entrance selection process.

On entry to Dauntsey's, pupils receive the appropriate level of individual support from experienced EAL teaching staff. 

Most international candidates apply to Dauntsey's through an educational agent who will be able to advise on suitability for Dauntsey's. Please contact the Admissions Office if you would like information about our approved educational agents.

Life of a Boarder

Our boarders are at the heart of our school community and every pupil joins one of five houses which are co-educational in the Lower School and single sex in the Upper School.

Clubs and Activities

Dauntsey's prides itself on the huge range of clubs, societies and activities that exist to provide enrichment and breadth to the academic curriculum.  All international pupils become a member of The International Society.
