New skills, new Adventures, new friends. Downsend + runs throughout the half term and school holiday breaks. Open to everyone, our leader, Rebecca Peak, organises an amazing programme each holiday.
The school’s active programme continues into the half terms and holidays, when Downsend+ and Downsend Pre-Prep+ take over. Both offer holiday care provision for all our pupils and friends of Downsend School in a familiar and secure environment.
Downsend+ is based at our Prep School and caters for children from 5 – 13, whilst our younger children can attend Downsend Pre-Prep+, from age 2-5 at our Pre-Prep in Leatherhead.
Combined with our term time schooling, Downsend+ can provide 50 week child care from 8.00am to 5.30pm. Run by staff who are involved with teaching the children during term time, it aims to fulfil the needs of parents and children alike. With a large variety of activities, it gives pupils access to exciting and absorbing workshops and courses where they make new friends and gain new skills.
For new children joining the Prep School, this is also a relaxed, happy and informal way to discover the site and a great way to familiarise your child with the school.
Our 2018-19 Contact Form is available here which will need to be completed for this academic year and will not need to be completed again unless any of the details change.

“Molly and Joseph have had an absolutely fantastic time at Downsend + this Summer and I am extremely impressed with the standard of care from all staff and the extremely high quality activities on offer. Both have met new friends and experienced things they would probably never have tried or even know about had they not had the opportunity Downsend + has offered them. What a great Summer for them both – I really can’t commend you and your team highly enough! Thank you.”
“Thanks for looking after the boys so well over the summer, they had a fantastic time – you and the whole team were amazing as always.”
“I just wanted to thank you and your team for another fun summer holidays at Downsend Plus. Jack and Maya loved the days they did. They especially loved the animal place on the last day and want to go back.”
“I just wanted to send you a note to say a massive thank you for the summer holiday club. It was the first time that we used it and Euan absolutely loved it. It was so well organised and all the staff were really friendly. We will definitely be using it again. Thank you again.”
