What the school says...
Dauntsey's is a leading co-educational boarding and day school for 11-18 year olds, located on the northern edge of Salisbury Plain set in an estate of over 100 acres of idyllic countryside.
Academic standards are high and the School features strongly in the League Tables for both GCSE and A Level. However, all pupils discover a breadth and depth of education that takes them beyond academic achievement. Drama, music, art and sport all flourish and the rural surroundings provide an ideal setting for many outdoor activities.
Dauntseys is noted for its unpretentious and friendly atmosphere. Our pupils come from many different schools and arrive at Dauntseys eager to make new friends and ready for new challenges. Registrar, Joanna Sagers

What The Good Schools Guide saysNo Optimists or Fireflies on a pond for Dauntsey’s, instead school has bought a 100 year old tall ship, the Jolie Brise. Pupils competed in the Fastnet in 2013 (she actually won the first in 1925); they also cruise more lazily off the Isle of Wight. Everyone gets a go in mixed teams of eight and parents are envious.
Since September 2012, Mr Mark Lascelles (40s), previously lower master, and temporary acting head of King's School Canterbury – something of a rough ride. He was educated at Shrewsbury School and Durham, where he read geography and was keen and proficient in cricket and football to county level and beyond. Now he only plays social cricket - frustrating, as he is very competitive. Back at Shrewsbury for a further 17 years, he became a housemaster and...
