Parents & families

As a Downe House parent, you will be welcomed into a strong and supportive community firmly based on the belief that when parents and school work together to support your daughters, they have the best possible chance of achieving real success in whatever they choose to do.

A partnership with parents

Right from the start, Downe House families are encouraged to get to know one another facilitated by the annual Parents’ Drinks Receptions held in London and Parents’ Lunches at Downe House for each year group as well as regular invitations to concerts, drama and dance productions, Medley Lectures, sports fixtures, Founder’s Weekend, charity events, Parents’ Meetings to name but a few.

Regular communication

Of course, effective communication is the key to building those important relationships within any community. Weekly and termly newsletters will keep you up to date on what’s happening during the week and at weekends; the online Parent Zone provides a wealth of information on every aspect of school life; our Sports Management system SOCS will keep you up to date with the sports fixture calendar, team lists, results and match reports.

Not only this but the teaching staff provide regular and detailed reports on academic matters and there is an annual Parents’ Meeting which gives you the opportunity to sit down with your daughter’s teachers; you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Instagram for photos and everyday insights into school life, and perhaps most important of all, you will be in close and regular contact with your daughter’s Housemistress and Tutor who will keep you up to date with all that is going on in her everyday life. Within our community, care and respect for one another are given the highest priority and everyone is committed to going the extra mile to ensure that every girl is treated as an individual.
