Downe House at your school – now digital!

We regularly send staff out to deliver workshops at our feeder schools, individually tailored to each school’s needs. We are are pleased to begin to offer our workshops online during this period of remote learning and beyond!

Workshops and bespoke programmes

From Dance and Drama to Science and Music, our specialist teachers enjoy delivering creative and dynamic workshops for any age group. We also offer a series of enrichment sessions for leavers’ programmes in Year 8 with a more academic extension slant. These introduce pupils to our super-curricular Elective programme,which runs alongside our core curriculum at Downe House. We are pleased to begin to offer these online during this period of remote learning.

In the future, our expert staff will be keen to visit schools again to deliver these workshops in person and to adjudicate competitions, umpire sports matches and preach in Chapel. If you are interested in our programme of workshops or would like us to design a session specifically for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
