The Downley School

“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

Headteacher's Welcome

The Downley School is developing into an inspiring school that will develop happy, well-rounded children with a love for learning, underpinned by our values: Respect, Happiness and Ambition.

We follow the principles of ‘Growth Mindset’, where we encourage children to believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. This creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.

It is a great privilege for me to lead a school with so much potential and I aim to continue to build on this in order to make a difference to the lives of our young people. From reading about us, I hope you will feel the pride we have in our school.

If you are considering Downley for your child, please come and visit our inspiring school, speak to our staff and children, and we will answer any questions you may have.

We hope you will find our website helpful.

Ms L Dandridge
Interim Headteacher
