Creative Arts

You’ll discover that Art, Drama, Music and Design & Technology are very popular amongst Downside pupils, both at GCSE and A Level, and as additional activities and events.

Concerts are held in the magnificent Abbey Church throughout the year, with plays performed in our newly restored 450-seat Theatre. We have an Artist-in-Residence who continually inspires the children, and the very latest equipment in our Design workshops: from 3D printers to an iMac suite.
