We know that returning home to Northern Ireland or relocating here for the first time can be exciting but daunting when looking for the right school for your child. We have a lot of experience of settling in children that have moved from overseas or other parts of the UK and will ensure that your child has an easy transition and is quickly settled in their new school. 

Applications for P1 should be made by 28 January 2022 for entry in September 2022. Places will be confirmed by February 2022. We accept applications all year round for entry into P2-P7, and can usually accommodate spaces in each year, this is dependent on there being available space, please get in touch to arrange a tour (this can be done in person or virtually) or to answer any questions you may have, we are happy to help.

For all new enrolments for 2022/2023 academic year we are delighted to provide £1,000 discount on fees for this year. Full details on fees can be found here.

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.
