Moving to Northern Ireland

We know that returning home to Northern Ireland or even moving here for the first time can be exciting but daunting when looking for the right school for your child. We accept applications all year round and can usually accommodate spaces in each year, please get in touch to arrange a tour or to answer any questions you may have, we are happy to help.

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.
