Open Events and Tours

Open Events and Tours

We are always pleased to welcome you to Downsend.

Visit us on an Open Day or come for a personal tour.

We hold Open Mornings throughout the year each term, at both our Prep School and our three Pre-Prep schools.

To help working parents, we hold some events on a Saturday and try to make all Personal Tours at a convenient time to suit you.


What you can expect

At our Open events you will discover all the opportunities a Downsend education can offer. You will get to meet the Head, have a tour of the school, meet our children and chat to staff over refreshments.

At our Prep school, the Upper School children will take you on a tour, tailored to you, lasting around 40 minutes.

At our Pre-Prep schools, the Head will take you on a tour and you will see the school in action.


Personal Tours

If you choose a week day Open Morning or a Personal Tour, you will see our classrooms alive with action in the course of a normal teaching day.

If you’d like to arrange a Personal Tour our Admissions Team can arrange this for you.  The team will also be on hand to answer questions about our admissions process and discuss next steps with you when you visit.

We look forward to welcoming you.
