Discovering Downside at Open Day

We love Open Days at Downside. Aside from the delicious buffet, lovingly prepared by our award-winning caterers, Holroyd Howe, it’s always great fun getting to know families who are considering sending their child to boarding school or become a day pupil. 

For our guests, there is the opportunity to also chat candidly with existing parents about the day-to-day experience, as well as a tour of our rural site with our existing pupils (this is where you really get to hear about how good the food is, or what the teachers are really like).

Sixth Form Open Day

If you weren’t able to make it to our recent Sixth Form Open Day, fear not, as we still have a few spaces still available for our next general Open Day (for all entry ages 11-18) on Saturday 5th November. Call our registrar, Anastasia Hatvany, today on +44(0)1761 235103, or email
