After some months work behind the scenes we are delighted to launch our new-look online.
I hope our website gives you a sense of what it’s like to be at Dauntsey’s and whether your son or daughter would be happy here. To experience the School for yourself, please visit us. You’ll find open spaces and open minds.
The house system gives pupils a secure source of support and guidance in every aspect of life, as well as the chance to get together and have fun.
We are enormously proud of our pupils. Their happiness and fulfilment is our ultimate priority as in our experience, if our pupils are happy then success will follow.
Welcome to our website which we hope portrays the warmth, the energy and spirit of our community. Our 300 boarders are at the heart of our school community and are joined each morning by over 500 day pupils.
People, not buildings or facilities, are what make a good school great and we are proud to have an exceptional team of teachers who pass on their enthusiasm and love of their subject to pupils.
We have a thriving boarding community, which makes up some 50% of pupil numbers in the Upper School. For some, boarding is a necessity, as their parents live far away from the School. For others who live closer, its a matter of choice.
