Old Dauntseians

Being a member of the Dauntsey's Community goes far beyond your days at school. 
The Old Dauntseian Association continues to support its members as they move through the different phases of their life - be that through providing network opportunities, reigniting lost friendships or offering support when needed.  There are also a number of events held throughout the year, both in the UK and abroad that all ODs are warmly invited to attend and of course you are also always welcome to come back and visit the school, but please do get in touch in advance of doing so.

Bursary and Welfare Funds

The Bursary Fund provides financial assistance through bursaries for pupils at Dauntsey's whose parents may be experiencing difficulties in meeting the School fees. 

The Welfare Fund is a freestanding Charitable Trust, "to render assistance in necessitous cases by advice or financial grant to Old Dauntseians and their families". All applications and all grants are treated in complete confidence; names and facts are never disclosed to anyone other than the Trustees.

Please note only cases of genuine hardship will be considered.

For more details, please contact Mark Neve, Head of Foundation: m.neve@dauntseys.org
