Open Mornings and Visits

Visits

A visit to Downside is a superb opportunity not only to see the School at work, but to meet with current pupils, staff and our Head, Andrew Hobbs. Come and see for yourself why learning and living at Downside is such an enriching experience.

Your visit will include a one-to-one meeting with the Head and our Director of Admissions. Current Downside pupils will take you on a guided tour of the extensive facilities and stunning grounds including the Houses, sports facilities and the Performing Arts Centre.

Taster Days

To help support the transition your children’s current school to Downside, we offer children the opportunity to spend a day experiencing a typical day at the School. Children will be buddied with current Downside pupils in the Year Group into which they are coming, allowing them to experience age-appropriate learning and meet some of their prospective schoolmates.
