It is our aim to ensure that Downe House moves forward and remains at the forefront of boarding education. Our girls are preparing for an increasingly demanding future and we want them to have the very best preparation for life and the maximum range of opportunities, so that they can develop as rounded individuals and leave us ready to make a significant contribution to society.
It is also our hope and aspiration that Downe House should, as our Founder intended, continue to be a thriving community so that the girls benefit from strong parental involvement, the support of our alumnae and, of course, the highest calibre of staff.
As part of our strategy to achieve this the School has focused on strategic projects such as the refurbishment of Holcombe and Darwin, the building of the new Lower School houses, and improvements made to the dining facilities and surrounding area on the ground floor of Willis House. Finally, our latest and most significant development, the Murray Centre, which has brought such a positive and dramatic change for the whole school community.
