Downe House School

Be kind, work hard, aim high
Experienced Head, Emma McKendrick, says ‘no one has the right to make a girl into a particular person, but it does have a responsibility to provide her with as many opportunities as possible’. Girls who take advantage of all the academic, creative and sporting opportunities on offer will flourish here. The Downe House DNA values ensure the girls are ready for the world beyond school and the focus on ‘outward looking’ includes spending a term in France and the chance to take part in a global schools’ exchange. This is reflected in their university destinations with high A Level results securing pupils places at many top global universities in disciplines which range from Fine Art to Molecular Physics.
