Clubs and Societies
Our clubs and societies programme offers pupils a huge range of activities including trampolining, debating, street dance, fencing, ancient Greek, triathlon, archery and robotics – and these are just a few of the options on offer.All clubs are run by enthusiastic members of staff and many of these clubs have been started at the direct request of pupils. For example, the girls’ cricket club is a fairly recent addition to the School's clubs programme. The girls are very enthusiastic and train twice a week in the summer term, play fixtures and on occasion join in mixed training nets sessions.
Two long breaks are scheduled during the day giving pupils plenty of time for clubs and societies.The most successful Dauntseians are those who work hard and play hard.
Work and extra-curricular activities are integral parts of everyday life at Dauntsey's. House staff and tutors encourage and support pupils to ensure that they keep on top of their academic work but also make the most of the many opportunities on offer. ”HouseMistress, Annie Evans

Skills included in the art are Pugilism, long swords, military sabre and rapier and dagger. The club is open to pupils across all year groups.
