About Dauntsey's School

Dauntsey’s School is a co-educational independent day and boarding school in the village of West Lavington, Wiltshire, England. The school was founded in 1542, in accordance with the will of William Dauntesey, a master of the Worshipful Company of Mercers.

Most houses are named after former headmasters, the exceptions being Manor, Farmer, Mercers (named after a building, a generous donor and the Worshipful Company respectively) and Lambert (named after Agnes Lambert; the wife of William Dauntsey). 

The house a pupil is in does not affect their academic class groups but the houses compete against each other in sporting and other events.

In Upper School, houses are single gender, and the eight houses are divided equally among day, boarding, female and male pupils.

Strong Cup is the annual point-system senior house competition for boys at Dauntsey’s School, so Farmer, Fitzmaurice, Hemens and Mercers are the only houses that are involved. Farmer won it recently in 2011, and again in 2013. Hemens won the cup most recently in 2014.
