Downside’s development goes from strength to strength under the guidance of the Head Master, James Whitehead.

£12,000,000 has been invested in the last 15 years and half of that has been made possible thanks to the generous support of our alumni, parents and friends. The latest project in the portfolio is the restoration of the Theatre and wrapped around it a new Music School has been developed to provide a new Performing Arts Centre in the heart of the campus to include a recording studio and drama hub. In addition we have repaired the Abbey Church roof and opened up the Monastic Archives and Library to the wider public.
