To broaden each girl’s horizons, create exciting exchange opportunities and foster an understanding of the importance of helping those who are less fortunate, we encourage all girls to be involved in charitable work and have forged relationships with several overseas schools.
Downe House girls have raised substantial amounts of money for various charities. This has been achieved by a broad spectrum of activities such as: chapel collections, a charity fashion show, charity drama events, mufti days, and a charity swimming marathon. Girls have also taken the initiative in organising other events such as sales of fair-trade goods or cake sales.
In the Academic year 2016-2017 the girls raised £41,675.20 for charitable causes here in the UK and around the world.
