Downey House really is what people think of as the best of a traditional preparatory school - a small friendly school, with excellent facilities and extenstive grounds. The children are happy and engaged, getting a truly well rounded education with French, art, music, performing arts, sports including swimming, all an integral part of the weekly routine. We have been very happy with the education, care and opportunities that our children have and couldn't recommend Downey House highly enough.
