Every girl is encouraged to get involved. You may have a child whose interests are focused on the sports field, but they are encouraged to do everything from music, drama, dance, sport, to helping at local charities.
Downe House Parent, 2019
With a rich and varied programme of co-curricular activities, we offer every pupil opportunities to pursue interests beyond the core academic curriculum, many of which they may not have previously experienced or considered.
We are committed to supporting all pupils to discover activities that challenge, stimulate and develop them. We do this by offering a tremendous diversity of enrichment opportunities, including trips, made possible through an extended school day and a passionate team of teachers.
Girls are also encouraged to take pride in supporting the local and global community through projects and charity work.
There are many opportunities for pupils to explore and discover their artistic and musical potential beyond the curriculum.
We offer a wealth of musical opportunities for every pupil of every age. These include private music lessons, participating in musical ensembles, school concerts and choirs.
Our Drama provision develops communication skills and harnesses creativity and imagination. Skills in acting and communication help to develop all pupils’ ability to express their views with confidence. To this end, we take an inclusive approach to drama by providing a broad range of opportunities so that everyone can take part.
The 560-seat theatre is at the heart of the performing arts facilities. Designed by leading architects, the theatre incorporates the best-in-class audio-visual, acoustic and lighting design to ensure that all pupils find their spotlight.
Downe House sport is not just part of the curriculum but also a vital element of our holistic education and self-improvement process.
At Downe House we ensure that every pupil can take part and compete in a range of sporting activities. The school has a ‘Sport for All’ ethos encouraging physical fitness for life. This equips all pupils to reach their potential in whatever sport they enjoy and at any age and level.
The sports facilities include an indoor pool, basketball/football court, squash courts, ballet studio, dance studio, boxing room, fitness suite and gym. A range of age-appropriate sports will be offered to all pupils at Downe House Riyadh.
