Overview

Downend School is an exciting and vibrant learning community where every young person is supported to achieve their very best.

At Downend we have high expectations of all our students. We expect them to reflect this in their appearance, attitudes and behaviour.  We are shaping the citizens of the future, and encourage our students to be honest, fair and just in their dealings with each other and those in the world around them. We want every student at Downend to have a sense of pride in belonging to our school community.

We aim to offer a very wide range of opportunities both within the classroom and in the wider life of the school, nurturing the talents of every student to ensure their school experience is fulfilling and enriching.

We believe that every child is equal, but that they will need different experiences to make the most of their talents.  Our curriculum is based on a number of “Pathways”, with every child following a carefully designed package of courses that allows the right level of personal challenge whilst enabling all students to achieve excellent qualifications.

Downend students experience considerable academic success, and we are proud of the achievements of our young people, many of whom go on to high-quality apprenticeships or to study at prestigious universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

Downend has a long-established reputation for the quality of the support offered to students. We get to know every student as an individual and work hard to ensure they are happy, safe and secure at school.
