Downe House combines the best aspects of a British education with a thoroughly global outlook. On average you will find 10% non-UK nationals in our student body, bringing together families from Malta, Germany, Spain, Poland, France, Nepal, Nigeria, the USA, South Korea, Thailand, Kenya, Ghana, Singapore, Zambia, the Philippines, China, South Africa, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Denmark, Russia, Zimbabwe, Australia, Malaysia, Slovakia, Indonesia, Japan, Cayman Islands, Kazakhstan, Belgium, Bermuda and Italy.

We employ over 300 staff from all four corners of the globe, bringing richness and diversity to our community.
Our first teacher exchanges are planned for 2017-18 and will be an opportunity to see best practice in schools overseas.

Every year we appoint Sixth Formers whose families live abroad as Global Ambassadors, with a special responsibility for welcoming overseas girls and helping them to settle into life at Downe House.
