Welcome to our Virtual 'Little Downsend' Experience

Welcome to our Virtual 'Little Downsend' Experience

We would have loved to be welcoming you in person to Downsend for our usual summer term open morning. However, until we can invite you through our doors to see our wonderful school, staff, and children for yourselves, we have put together a ‘Virtual Downsend Experience’ to bring our wonderful school to you instead, and to give you a taste of what a place at one of our ‘Little Downsend’ Schools can offer your child.


Please follow the links below for an informative video talk from Vanessa Conlan, the Head of our Little Downsend Schools, and some great Q&As especially for your child from some of our children, as well as a brand new 360 virtual tour to show you around some of our wonderful facilities until you can visit us in person.


We have put together a few videos in the gallery below to show you a little of what it is like to be a pupil at Downsend:

Video 1 – Hannah Harrison, Admissions Manager
Video 2 – Vanessa Conlan, Head of our Little Downsend schools
Video 3 – Life at Little Downsend through the eyes of our children


Just use the arrows to move between the videos.

Have a look around the Little Downsend Schools with our 360 Virtual Tour:

We are looking forward to being able to show you around one of our very special Little Downsend schools in person very soon, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy taking a look around our fantastic facilities using our interactive 360 degree virtual tour.

Have a browse through some photos from our Little Downsend Schools.

We hope you have enjoyed your Virtual Little Downsend Experience. We would love to speak to you about your plans for your child’s future education, and hope to be able to support you with this important decision. Our Admissions Team will now follow up with you directly to book an online 121 or a socially distanced tour. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch:
