School Profile

Dauntsey's is a leading co-educational boarding and day school for 11-18 year olds, located on the northern edge of Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire set in an estate of over 100 acres of idyllic countryside. 

Dauntsey's is one of the most popular fully co-educational schools in the country, with the number of boarders continuing to grow year by year. Some 780 boys and girls, between the ages of 11 and 18, attend the School. Pupils usually join at 11+, 13+ or 16+.

At Dauntsey's every pupil joins a boarding or day house, led by the Housemaster or Housemistress and a team of tutors.  A sensitively structured programme of personal, religious and social education helps each pupil to cope with the demands of adolescent life and to develop a responsible awareness of others. The equal balance of boarding and day pupils, and the wide range of facilities, ensures that everyone feels part of the community. Pupils are actively involved in community service locally and more widely, and the School's Charity Committee raises sizeable sums of money each year for national and international appeals.
