Work with us

Dauntsey’s is a friendly, focussed, and happy school where I ask everyone, both pupils and staff, to give of their best, to be adventurous and to look after each other.

I believe that people, rather than buildings or facilities, are what make a good school great, and I am proud to lead an exceptional team here at Dauntsey’s.

Dauntsey’s sits in an idyllic location in the middle of rural Wiltshire, five miles from the historic market town of Devizes, close to Bath and Salisbury, and an hour and a half from London. The school has grown steadily in recent years, thanks to strong academic results, the strength of its all-round education, the generous support of the Mercers’ Company and outstanding pupils and staff.  It is a thriving co-educational school of 865 day and boarding pupils.

From all our staff, I ask for commitment, enthusiasm, energy, and positivity; in return we offer a happy, supportive, and fulfilling environment in which to work.
