Open Mornings and Visits

Visiting Downside School

We would love to welcome you to Downside to enable you to learn more about our School, giving you an opportunity to meet the community who live, study and work here.

If you would like to arrange a visit, please Contact Us in the first instance. We would be delighted to arrange a private tour for you and your family once the School re-opens following the Coronavirus outbreak.

You are also very welcome to attend one of our Open Mornings that are hosted at intervals throughout the academic year, including an event dedicated for prospective Sixth Formers. Our Open Mornings include a one-to-one meeting with the Head Master, a guided tour of the extensive facilities and stunning grounds including the Houses, sports facilities and the Performing Arts Centre. You will enjoy a short recital in the Abbey Church including beautiful singing from one of our four choirs, before a light lunch in our Weld Café, provided by our award-winning caterers Holroyd Howe. After lunch you are welcome to take a stroll up to the Cricket Pavilion to watch the afternoon’s sporting fixtures and sample our famous match teas.

Forthcoming Open Mornings
