Facilities

Inside

The facilities at Downsend are outstanding, and complement our teaching to inspire our young minds to be the best they can be. Across the site there are dedicated subject rooms where subject specialist teachers deliver high-tempo contemporary lessons using integrated multi-media technology.

Our fully refurbished ICT suite and ambitious Virtual Learning Environment are used to support teaching and learning both in school and at home.

We have three specialist science labs and a science technician meaning we can adopt a ‘hands on’ practical approach to this subject.

Our commitment to the wider curriculum is evidenced with first class music resources, including sound booths, and technology rooms with an amazing array of equipment, including a digital laser cutter.

Outside

Outside the classrooms there is a stunning heated indoor 25m swimming pool, used for training and competitive galas, and a 100m floodlit astro-turf pitch, allowing our Hockey players to develop their talents and stick-control on the very best surface possible.
