Creating global citizens
Few would disagree that through travel and modern communications, the world in which we live can seem a much smaller place.
Equally, with today’s career opportunities just as likely to stem from the major economic centres overseas as from the UK, we believe that it is vitally important that every Downe House girl views life with a true sense of internationalism.
Consequently, whether it is through skiing in Vermont, playing lacrosse in the United States, travelling to Africa, studying in Florence, or meeting underprivileged children in Bangalore, we make certain that Downe House girls gain countless opportunities to experience the world, discover new cultures, meet people from different walks of life and truly broaden their horizons.
Ask any Downe House girl to name a single highlight of her time with us, however, and there is every chance she will say ‘Veyrines’ – our ‘farmhouse’ school in the beautiful Périgord Noir.
