We are enormously grateful to OGs, current parents and friends who gave up their Saturday morning to visit Downside and talk to pupils about careers. A wide range of industries were represented and speakers talked about their progression through school and university (not necessarily straight forward!) and those crucial steps into a successful career.
We were delighted to welcome key note speaker, Piers Morgan, who gave a hugely entertaining question and answer session in the Gasquet Hall. According to Piers he applied for a scholarship to Downside and was rejected, however, he is proud Uncle to Milly and Lucy who are current pupils in the School.
