Boys and Girls, First-Third Form

Rendell House, established in 1986, is named after Leslie Rendell who taught at Dauntsey's for 37 years (1949 - 1986) and was House Master of the Manor for 25 years.

Rendell House is based in the Lower School Centre and provides a friendly and supportive atmosphere for pupils throughout the day. In addition, social events such as ‘movie nights’ and a pizza and bowling trip are organised throughout the year.
