We are delighted to announce that, for adding value at A level, Downside has been placed second in Somerset and 39th nationally in the DFE performance tables, ranking our value added score in the top 30 independent schools in England.

These results reflect the commitment of Downside to see every pupil achieve their very best as they progress through the School. There can be no doubt that pupils who are happy, challenged and engaged take full advantage of all the opportunities offered to them and support each other to do the same.

All our pupils, both boarding and day, are able to immerse themselves fully into learning  at Downside – with on-site extra tuition, where necessary, and focussed prep-time.

The valued added at Downside is not solely limited to academic achievements. The School offers opportunities for pupils to enjoy over 70 co-curricular activities – all building confidence and developing character – whether it be team work in sports, problem solving on CCF exercise, outreach to local primary schools or communication skills honed at public speaking events.
