At the moment we find ourselves experiencing school closures, lock-downs and emotions that none of us have ever experienced before all due to the Coronavirus, Covid-19.  

Although the Downside School site is currently closed to visitors, our staff continue to work remotely to support families that are joining the school in September and beyond.  None of us would ever have believed we would be in this position, however I am pleased to have met many families ‘virtually’ and to have been able to give each and every one of them the time they deserve.   

Andrew Hobbs, the Head Master, and I would be delighted to welcome you and your family to the School in the future, but until then, let’s use technology to its best effect. Please email in the first instance to to set up a meeting and, until we speak, please enjoy all of our social media channels to follow what has been happening in the last few weeks.

With all good wishes,
Issy Hartnell
Director of Admissions
