The Downley School

“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

IVET Quality Mark

On 20th May 2014, Dr Neil Hawkes, the founder of Values Based Education, visited our school. 


He awarded The Downley School with the International Values-based Education Trust’s (IVET) Quality Mark in Values-based Education (VbE). Whilst we appreciate this was some time ago we still uphold the principles of this.

This is a highly respected Quality Mark and we are all so very proud of our whole school community who have embraced a values based curriculum from the start.
