Back to School

We’re refreshed and ready to embark upon a new academic year, complete with a set of very impressive academic A Level and GCSE results, a surge in pupil numbers, and a number of excellent new staff.  

The pupils have been settling into their routine, with classes and activities taking place. This weekend pupils took part in Hockey training match trials, U16 and U14 Rugby match trials, a variety of fun house events (see photos of the Caverel girls), the Rugby teams traveled away on Sunday for their first tournaments of the season, whilst there was a trip to Bath, the first meeting of the Vintners’ Society, and a paint-balling trip. Phew…there’s never a dull moment at Downside!  

The refurbished Refectory took everyone’s breath away upon returning to School….take a quick look here:
