Childcare Provision. We match the school day with your working day

This is a school where you can have it all! We plan our school day meticulously with a balance of academic life enriched with extra-curricular activities for children to grow intellectually and socially but also to provide opportunities to discover hidden talents, progress a specific skill and often take it to scholarship level.

Over 70 different clubs not including a vibrant programme of Music, Sport, and Drama, specialist Academies for children to take advantage of high quality training, visiting speakers and performers, residential and school trips make us a very active, forward looking school.


Inspiring young minds…

… Beyond the classroom

We love to link learning to real life. To enhance our curriculum studies, Downsend pupils investigate outside the classroom. Recent outings have included Fishbourne Roman Palace, the Globe Theatre, Nower Wood, Hampton Court, and the Herstmonceux Science Observatory.

… Beyond the UK

We also like to broaden our horizons and explore far and wide. Residential trips have taken us to the culture and history of Normandy, kayaking and rock climbing adventures in the Ardeche, skiing in Italy… wonder where we’re off to next!
