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 lives - 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.  

Members of the The Old Dauntseian Association receive regular copies of The Odessey via email, keeping you up-to-date with news from the school community..  If you are not receiving these emails, please get in touch with the Foundation Office.
