The Downsend Vision

The Downsend Vision

At Downsend, our new vision for 2021 is to inspire a generation to embrace the future, shaping incredible people who will make change in our world.

Our Aims

  1. We inspire a global perspective, encouraging an awareness and an understanding of the world around us, and our responsibility to make change.
  2. We shape incredible people with the emotional intelligence to build relationships, lead teams and adapt to a changing world.
  3. We find the creativity within us all. We develop the curious, the critical-thinkers, the artists and the innovators.
  4. We aspire to digital mastery by equipping ourselves with the ability and the mindset to tackle the technology of the future.

Downsend has long been a school with a different outlook on life. For us, boundaries are there to be pushed and new possibilities there to be explored. Having watched the landscape for our children change so significantly throughout the pandemic, we saw an opportunity to re-evaluate our aims and approach, embracing the changes and engaging with the very best educational and industry research to help us look to the future.
