Downe House hosts an array of events and workshops for younger pupils to give them and their teachers an experience of what life is like at Downe House. From orchestral fun days to sports masterclasses, there is an experience for pupils of all talents and abilities, with each day geared to towards complementing the curriculum in their own school.
“Great memories were made, great expectations were met and great ideas for the future were sown.”

Thank you for a wonderful day yesterday. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, as did I. The day gave them an experience which they can take with them to secondary school in September.

Each Lent term, schools join forces with a team of Downe House drama and dance teachers for a day of acting, singing and dance workshops. The workshop has grown enormously in popularity and is filled far in advance. Our most recent Musical Theatre day had 127 girls from eight schools create a fantastic performance of Mary Poppins.
