Dauntsey’s is a leading coeducational boarding and day school for 11–18 year olds located on the northern edge of Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire.


Academic endeavour is at the heart of the School and pupils should leave with strong examination results and a love of learning. But a Dauntsey’s education is not just about
academic results.

"I really value that the staff genuinely know and care about my children, they always go the extra mile and, in my experience, are also amazingly kind.” Dauntsey’s parent

Curiosity and a spirit of adventure are also encouraged to ensure that all pupils make the most of the many opportunities on offer. Drama, music, art and sport all flourish and our extensive rural surroundings provide an ideal setting for many adventurous outdoor activities. Pupils build resilience through the challenges they take on once lessons are over and this enables them to quickly adapt to the ever-changing world they enter on leaving school.

Dauntsey’s is lively, creative and caring; it is a happy community with a strong family atmosphere, where friendship matters and where the courteous informality between staff and pupils is highly valued. 


“Dauntsey’s is a friendly, focussed and happy school where I ask every pupil to give of their best, to be adventurous and to look after each other.”
Headmaster, Mark Lascelles


"The school is highly successful in developing well-rounded, confident, skilled young people who are very well equipped for the next stage of their education.”
