The quality of our facilities is outstanding and shows our commitment to delivering a strategy of teaching and learning excellence.


Year 8

We have access to some amazing resources, especially in Science and Art.


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, with fully integrated multi-media technology, with subject specialist teachers delivering high tempo and contemporary lessons.

Our study centre in Howard House, with a bank of interactive ‘ThinkPad’ tablets, provides a dedicated area for our Year 7 and Year 8 pupils as they study towards their Common Entrance exams.

A fully refurbished ICT suite and an ambitious Virtual Learning Environment, completes our ‘state of the art’ ICT facilities, integrating this technology into all our teaching.

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

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


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.
