Tatler's Best Public School Award goes to Downe House
Headmistress, Mrs Emma McKendrick was delighted and honoured to receive the Tatler Award on behalf of the School for the ‘Best Public School’ yesterday evening at the Schools’ Award Ceremony at The Dorchester.
Alice Rose, Editor of the TATLER Schools Guide explained:
"All the schools in our guide are exceptional in their own way, but Downe House kept cropping up this year in conversations with parents, pupils and prep school heads. There's a real buzz about the school - the seemingly effortless transition to Pre-U, the cracking sports results, the tremendously good pastoral care - and about Mrs McKendrick's exceptional leadership. When we asked heads to give us nominations for the best public school, Downe House topped the board. We were delighted to give it our Best Public School of the Year award for 2011."
