Children begin their Upper School journey in Year 6. They feel a sense of achievement and fulfilment at rising to the top of the school.
Welcome to the Upper School
“Children are becoming the leaders of their own future; they show resilience and real determination to succeed.”
Specialist subject teaching prepares the children successfully for academic achievement – but a Downsend pupil aspires to more.
A learning environment ‘of their own’ – here the pupils in Year 8 have space to think, to work, to play. A well-deserved privilege.
Skills and talents can be progressed to a high level; children leave ready to embrace every opportunity in the wider world.
The quality of our facilities is outstanding and shows our commitment to delivering a strategy of teaching and learning excellence.
