Dauntsey's School

Dauntsey's School

Dauntsey's School was founded in 1542, in West Lavington, Wiltshire, under the will of Alderman William Dauntsey, Master of the Worshipful Company of Mercers. Over 300 years later the school moved to its current site at the north end of West Lavington, and in May 1895 the school was inaugurated with a new name, Dauntsey's Agricultural School. In 1930, the school changed its name to Dauntsey's School although it remained largely dedicated to an agriculture-based education. In 1971, the first ever girls were admitted. In 1972, the farm buildings were closed and the school became a primarily academic institution. Dauntsey's is now a modern co-educational school.
