Scott House was established in 1986 and is named after John Scott who taught English at Dauntsey's from 1934-1969. The House crest and accompanying motto Bien ou Rien came from Mr Scott's great-grandfather, the architect Sir Gilbert Scott.
Scott has a history of excellent cross-country runners who have won the Inter-House Competition regularly since 1996. The House walls are covered in photos of house events and competitions spanning many years.
Every year a number of Third Form pupils are elected as House, Sports or Music captains as well as representatives who sit on the School Charity Committee. These pupils are encouraged in their roles to help with the day-to-day management of the House. Scott prides itself on its friendly atmosphere and is a popular meeting place for many Lower School pupils.

Sue teaches French and German as well as some complementary curriculum. She is Housemistress of Scott House, and works with a team of six tutors to look after 80 pupils from First to Third Form. She was previously a tutor in Lambert and Forbes. "Both my girls were in Scott House so I feel it is part of my family's Dauntsey's experience," she says.
