The ethos of AGS (Ancren Gate South) is very much that of a family. Housemistress Mrs McClymont lives with her husband David (Downe House IT Manager) and their two young daughters, plus their much-loved cat and dog, so it feels very much like a home from home, with family suppers, baking and various clubs to ensure that the girls have a positive and holistic approach to boarding.
Situated near the tennis courts, AGS is seconds away from the main building. The girls have raised significant sums for their international link charity, Hosanna Children’s Home in Myanmar, and generously volunteer their help or raise funds for their local charity, Riding for the Disabled, near Newbury.
AGS girls have a healthy dose of competitive spirt when it comes to House competitions and bags of enthusiasm. The House colour is green.
