Downe House at your school

We regularly send staff out to deliver workshops at our feeder schools, individually tailored to your needs.

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.

Our expert staff are also keen to visit schools to adjudicate competitions, umpire sports matches and preach in Chapel. In addition, we also offer a series of enrichment sessions for leavers’ programmes in Year 8 with a more academic slant, introducing pupils to our Elective programme, which runs alongside our core curriculum at Downe House.

If you are interested in our programme of workshops or would like us to design something specifically for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
