Life in Downe House Prep School

The Prep School at Downe House Riyadh is designed to give your child a broad range of engaging and challenging educational experiences, building on the firm foundations of Pre-Prep.

In Years 3 and 4, our girls and boys continue to learn in mixed co-educational classes, mainly taught by their class teacher.

From Year 5 upwards (Upper Prep), Downe House Riyadh is a female-only environment with specialised teaching for all subjects.

As well as supporting the pupils emotionally, we help each child to build resilience and encourage them to seize new opportunities in a safe, nurturing and inspiring environment.

Through a carefully tailored academic programme, we inspire our Prep School pupils to develop a love of learning outside the classroom and to widen their knowledge of the Riyadh community, Saudi Arabia and beyond.

We encourage all our Prep School pupils to enjoy a broad range of curricular and co-curricular clubs and activities on offer.
