Downside, is a leading Catholic Independent Boarding School. It is one of England's oldest and most distinguished schools, for boys and girls aged 11-18.

Downside's vision – as a leading Catholic School – is to be a a bright light in the world of education, illuminating the lives of young people and inspiring service in the world through experience of Benedictine culture. Benedictine education is unique: with Christ at its centre it aims to educate young people to develop as future leaders for 21st Century society.

Downside is uncompromising in the pursuit of academic "excellence" (ISI Report 2013) and aims to develop the character of your child, emphasizing the importance of moral courage, integrity and service to others.

The highest standards are aimed for in sport, both in terms of performance and sportsmanship, while our tradition of inspired productions in the arts is second-to-none.

The school endeavours, in addition, to provide your child with what may be referred to as a sense of 'the poetry of life', a sense of its beauty, form, mystery and joy. Everyone who comes here remarks on the happy atmosphere and we sincerely hope that you will come and see it for yourself. It is truly a remarkable, inspiring place.
