When you speak to our children, one thing always stands out above the rest. School is a place where they can be themselves, be with friends and – quite simply – be happy.
Happiness is key
The smiles speak for themselves
Our philosophy is simple - happy children thrive. For this reason each child at The Downs is placed in the midst of a network of exceptional pastoral care to ensure that no child is overlooked or lost in the crowd. We want every child to enjoy coming to school each day. Discover the one word some of our children use to describe The Downs...
Positive minds learn better
Our philosophy is simple: happy children thrive. That’s why every pupil at The Downs is encouraged to do what they love. Build dens. Weave daisy chains. Be loud and active. Then be quiet and focused. No phones, no closed doors. Just the freedom to follow their natural curiosity with the guidance of specialist support staff and teachers.
