After a long period in London, we returned to Belfast to start our family. We knew we had a number of great schools to pick from. Downey House stood out for us with its wonderful grounds and exceptional academic record. As a preparatory school of Methody, it also offered an important link to one of the best grammar school’s in Northern Ireland.
