We are delighted to have received some superb EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) results this year for the Upper Sixth Form.
Dauntsey's Upper School academic scholars had the opportunity yesterday evening to meet and mingle with a wide range of guests.
Last week, Upper Sixth History of Art pupil Hermione took to the lecturn to represent Dauntsey’s at the South-West regional heat for the ARTiculation Prize, held at St Swithun’s School, Winchester.
On Friday 15 December, our group of Religious Studies pupils set off on an adventure to India.
Congratulations to Sixth Formers Robert, Rachel, Shu and Rini who recently represented the school in the regional final of the Senior Team Maths Challenge in Chippenham.
Of 148 university applicants this year, the majority were able to take up their first choice of university, with Exeter, Birmingham and Bristol the most popular, but with good numbers also heading further afield to Cardiff, Durham and Leeds amongst others.
On November 2, a small group of Dauntsey's pupils travelled to The Hague for a Model United Nations conference. The pupils represented either Mali or Turkey in various committees such as: human rights, disarmament and G20 all aimed at combating a wide range of issues. It was a great opportunity for us to debate international politics, and improve our public speaking skills.
Twenty four Upper Sixth Formers and two staff members spent five days on a Geography fieldtrip to Iceland during the half-term break.
Our Spanish pupils have recently returned from a brilliant week in Granada. It’s said each trip, but our pupils were fabulous - even Spanish airport security complimented them on their polite Spanish!
