'The Mercers’ Lectures are named in recognition of the links between Dauntsey’s and the Mercers’ Company, which go back to Mercer founder Alderman William Dauntesey, Master of the Worshipful Company of Mercers, who founded the School in West Lavington in 1542. The lectures are a central part of our enrichment programme which encourages pupils to engage with the world outside the school gates, and to think beyond their academic curriculum. Through the programme, we have welcomed a diverse array of eminent speakers to Dauntsey’s; all are warmly invited to the lectures, and over the past few years over 15,000 have attended.'
