Visits and Open Days

Please do come and see Dauntsey's for yourself; we will be delighted to welcome you.

Open mornings are held twice a year on a Saturday morning in the Spring and Autumn Terms.

We also offer small group tours which are held regularly throughout the year and individual visits can be offered on most days, including Saturday mornings.

Please note that during public exams in May and June we are very limited with the number of individual visits we can offer. We therefore recommend that, during the Summer Term, families book on our Small Group Tour at the end of March, our Open Morning in May or our Small Group Tour at the end of June. We are also pleased to book individual visits for the Autumn Term. Thank you for your understanding.

Open Morning Dates

At present, we have no plans for a large open day in the Autumn term but will be offering opportunities to visit the school, hear the Head Master speak, meet teaching and admissions staff and will offer a short tour of the school site.

Given current restrictions, tour guides will be staff rather than pupils and there will be no access to our boarding or day houses or to the classrooms.  Further details will be published here at the start of term and anyone who has enquired online or via our admissions staff will be offered priority space on one of the tours. In the meantime, please visit our Virtual Visits page.

Open Morning Arrangements

Open Mornings offer the opportunity to meet pupils and staff and to tour the School on a normal working day.

Visitors are invited to arrive from 10.00 am for coffee in advance of the Head Master's welcome address at 10.20 am. Tours of the School with current pupils follow. For those interested in boarding at 11+ or 13+, these begin with a visit to our junior boarding house followed by a tour of the main School site.

For those considering entry into our Sixth Form there will be an additional presentation by our Deputy Head (Academic), Jon Tyler, followed by a tour of the School with current Sixth Form pupils.
