Downe HouseThe best way to experience Downe House and gain a thorough appreciation of the education we offer is to visit us.  There are two ways to do this - either an individual visit or an Open Morning.

1. Individual Visit

An individual visit will give you an opportunity to meet the Headmistress and have a guided tour of the School by a member of staff.  This can be arranged most days during term time.  Please contact the Registry to arrange this.

We conduct over 630 individual visits per year and value the opportunity to meet with all our prospective families to find out their expectations and answer the many queries that they may have.

2. Prospective Parents' Mornings (Open Mornings)

Prospective Parents' Mornings are a great opportunity to find out about the School in more depth and meet key members of staff, as well as current pupils who will conduct the tours. Attendance is by invitation only so please contact the Registry to book a place at one of these events.

Parents are asked to arrive at 9.30am for a 10.00am start.  The morning commences with light refreshments and the opportunity to chat with members of pastoral and academic staff. This is followed by a short, informal presentation given by the pupils and Headmistress about life at Downe.  You will then be taken on a tour of the School by current girls.

There are usually two Prospective Parents' Mornings each term, although we do restrict the numbers who attend to make the visit more worthwhile, so please do get in touch early.

The dates of the next Prospective Parents' Mornings with availability are as follows:

  • Saturday 27 April 2019
  • Saturday 15 June 2019
