Alan Jennings, Principal

At Methodist College we provide a choice of two preparatory departments; Downey House and Fullerton House, each with their own preschool. 

We are a non-denominational and co-educational preparatory department; we excel at providing a diverse and inclusive learning environment.

Why choose Downey House or Fullerton House?

At Downey House and Fullerton House we pride ourselves on our welcoming, caring and friendly atmosphere where each child has access to a range of opportunities and enhanced learning experiences. Our dedicated and experienced staff work hard to create a nurturing environment where each child is encouraged and challenged to be the best that they can be. 

Small class sizes, specialist teaching and excellent pastoral care ensures that your child receives an outstanding education in a rewarding environment which they truly enjoy. 

We are proud of our happy, bright, confident children who move onto secondary education confident in their abilities and skills. In 2019/2020, all of our P7 pupils gained entrance into their first choice grammar school with 97% going on to Methodist College.
