Family and community are at the heart of our school. This is what makes us special. We form strong relationships with parents, grandparents and carers. Each link in the chain adds something to our community. Each connection makes us stronger.
The key to our success
The triangle of relationships between the children, parents and staff is unique and incredibly solid. It creates an enormous network of highly skilled people, working quietly to deliver excellence in the care and progress of our children, our school and our community. This network gives a secure foundation from which every child can thrive.
Paying it forward
Something else we continuously engage with is supporting our wider community and providing opportunities for others. That may be with a charity fundraising event or by offering our facilities to programmes in need of support.
The Downs School Association (DSA)
Our brilliant parent teacher association, the DSA is another strand of unwavering support. With a buzzing calendar of events, they are experts in fundraising and creating fun, inspiring and highly social events which bring us all together.
