Weekends at Dauntsey's

As a six-day-a-week School with boarding at its heart and extracurricular activities woven into the day, we can strike a balance between academic lessons and developing other interests. Saturday night socials and Sunday outings are often highlights of the week.

There are six taught periods on a Saturday for all pupils, which is followed by sport fixtures in the afternoon. Additionally, facilities such as the art and DT buildings, the swimming pool, and the library are open in the afternoon for pupils use, and we have a diverse range of weekend activities and events for our full boarders.

Exeat weekends

There are four Exeat weekends spread across the year; two in the Autumn term, one in the Spring term and one in the Summer term.  On these weekends, pupils are free to leave once lessons have finished on Friday and they return to school on Sunday evening. For the Summer May Bank Holiday weekend, pupils can leave school from 12:45 p.m. on the Saturday (or after sporting commitments) and boarders return to school on the Monday evening.
