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.
Our staff will happily visit your school and work with pupils and staff on a range of topics including (but not limited!) to the workshops below.
Exciting hands-on Biology workshops and interactive lectures on topics including microorganisms, enzymes and the senses.
This exciting workshop explores philosophical, historical, theological and literary ideas and trends.
Our specialist Tennis, Hockey, Lacrosse, Netball or Cricket coaches can visit your school to umpire matches whilst you coach from the sidelines, or run introductory workshops, specialised training or tournament preparation sessions. Whatever suits you!
Our popular Forest School sessions include Extreme Dens, Fire Lighting and Woodland Art.
An excellent opportunity to improve acting and performance skills whilst developing collaborative techniques. A variety of options available including musical theatre and devising workshops.
A fun workshop developing individual choreography skills and learning a routine from a popular musical blockbuster.
We offer a range of bespoke academic workshops based on our super-curricular Elective Programme.
Our workshops open up new and exciting avenues of study, challenging participants and pushing them beyond the confines of the curriculum. The workshops include:
• An introduction to Film Studies
• An exploration of the history of the book
• An interdisciplinary investigation into the causes and consequences of the Reformation.
