Downe House name Finalist in the Independent Schools of the Year awards 2021

10 September 2021

Having been shortlisted earlier this summer, we are delighted that Downe House has been announced as a Finalist in the Girls’ School category of the Independent Schools of the Year awards 2021. 

‘It was an extremely tough decision to whittle down the finalists from more than 700 nominations received and especially given the consistently high standard of the entries,’ said the Independent Schools of the Year committee.  

At Downe House, we have a wealth of experience in delivering the very best in girls’ education. We have taught, encouraged and supported generations of girls, helping to develop their talents and interests for over 100 years. We are delighted to have been selected as a Finalist in the Independent Girls’ School Category, reflecting our expertise and commitment to girls’ education.  

‘Downe House really is a one-of-a-kind place,’ said a Class of 2020 Leaver. ‘I have learnt so much over the past seven years, and really do feel ready to enter the ‘world’! Most importantly, I have made the best friends that I know I will keep for life.’ 

Thank you to the Independent School of the Year 2021 judges for naming Downe House as a Finalist. We look forward to the virtual awards ceremony on Thursday 7 October.
