The Downe House Seniors’ Association (DHSA) was established in 1946 to build and maintain strong and lasting bonds between former pupils and the School.
We work hard to develop good relationships with the schools our girls come from. We also seek to develop lasting partnerships with a wide variety of schools through workshops, experience days and staff visits.
At Downe House we describe our ethos as a ‘partnership with parents’. We encourage parents to come and support their daughter’s achievements.
The Downe House community comes together annually during Founder’s Weekend to celebrate school life in this spectacular showcase of the girls’ hard work, talent and passion.
A culture of helping others is part of the fabric of the school and every girl is encouraged to get involved.
