As we start the new academic year, we draw inspiration from the success of our recent leavers as they embark on the next exciting step of their lives beyond Downside. 

It was encouraging to see how many secured places at their first-choice university, with an increasing number choosing to study STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Destinations included Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, Exeter, Sheffield, St Andrews, Cardiff, Durham, Edinburgh, Manchester and Leeds. 

We hope that whatever they have chosen to do – whether it be to take further their academic interests, follow the vocational route or opt for a gap year – that they continue to grow and develop as young men and women of principle and to act to make a positive difference in the world. 

If you are interested in joining Downside for Sixth Form, please reserve your place on our Virtual Sixth Form Subject Fair on 3rd October by emailing or calling our Admissions Team: / +44 (0)1761 235103.
