Busiest Open Day in a generation!

We were delighted to welcome a record number of families to the Downside Open Day, on Saturday 4th November.

The clouds dispersed just in time for sunshine and blue sky to welcome the 55 families to Stratton-on-the-Fosse, with many travelling from around the UK.

Visitors enjoyed their tours with our pupil guides, after hearing our Head Girl, Director of Admissions and House Mistress of Isabella House speak in the Gasquet Hall. A series of impressive musical performances were provided in the Abbey Church before a delicious lunch in the Weld Refectory, including the ever-popular chocolate fountain! 

A delicious lunch was enjoyed!
