Published Thursday 7th of March 2019 01:13:14 PM

Dauntsey’s has been classed as ‘Excellent’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in a recent inspection. The team of inspectors awarded the School the top category in both Pupils’ Achievement and Pupils’ Personal Development. The School also met all statutory regulations (there is no grading in this aspect). In particular, the inspectors noted that Dauntsey’s is highly successful in developing well-rounded, confident, skilled young people who are very well equipped for the next stage of their education. The report highlighted the, “extraordinarily wide range of activities offered through the schools’ extra-curricular programme and the excellent attitudes which pupils demonstrate towards learning.” Staff at Dauntsey’s were praised for their willingness to go way beyond their normal classroom teaching duties to support pupils; indeed pupils themselves thought the quality of the teaching and the tremendous support they receive from their teachers is a key factor in their success. Mark Lascelles, Head Master said: “Of all the comments in the report, the one of most importance to me is that pupils at Dauntsey’s believe that this is a community built on kindness, consideration and respect. “I am hugely proud of the pupils and of our superb staff, and I am delighted with the contents of this report which I feel is an accurate reflection of day-to-day life at Dauntsey’s.” The full report is available on the School’s website: For further information about Dauntsey’s School, go to or follow us on Twitter at Dauntsey’s@DauntseysSchool The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body approved by the Department for Education for the purpose of inspecting schools belonging to Independent Schools Council (ISC) Associations and reporting on compliance with independent school regulations.
