Downside is a vibrant international community. We have pupils and staff from 26 countries around the world which provide us with endless opportunities to celebrate our cultural diversity.

Last week our new pupils started their journey at Downside and were quickly and warmly welcomed into the community. Hailing from Austria, Chile, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Mexico, Oman, Poland, Portugal, São Tomé and Principe, Spain, and of course, the UK, they have quickly settled into Downside life and everything that entails – academics, sports, faith, weekend fun and new friendships.

We hope you will enjoy your time at Downside!
