Inspiring young minds
Downe House is at the forefront of education for girls. Most importantly, we achieve success without having to adopt an academic 'hot house' approach.
Instead, we combine strong academic values with excellent teachers, a broad curriculum and superbly equipped classrooms, to inspire each girl to explore a particularly wide range of subject combinations.
Individual Learning Programmes
Girls are supported by individual learning programmes tailored to the study methods that suit them best. Aiming for the highest set of academic results that each girl can achieve, we provide a sense of fulfilment and progress, and encourage confidence to grow. As confirmation of our approach, over 85% of Downe House girls achieve A* and A grades at I/GCSE. As an indication of our desire to provide the very best learning opportunities for our girls - and to better equip them for university - we focus on inspirational, challenging approaches to teaching and learning both within the classroom and in the wider school community.
