School description

The large and famous Downside School is popular among students all over the world. Successful educational experience has more than 400 years of productive work - the last 250 years the school is in a new, constantly renovated building, where technical and infrastructural opportunities are regularly updated. Today, the Downside School campus is just 12 miles from the bustling historic Bath, near the picturesque Mendip Hills.

The school was founded in 1606 by the Benedictine monks and was originally located in France. The school moved to England about 250 years ago, in 1814. At first the school provided educational services only for boys, but today the studying is conducted on a mixed basis: about 430 boys and girls from 9 to 18 are studying here (about 16% are foreign students, 390 are boarders). The total campus area reaches 500 acres.

Downside School is a religious category, the official religion of the campus is Catholicism. This brings a lot of advantages for students. Firstly, this is a serious financial support, and secondly, excellent conditions for creative work, especially music and singing: fine acoustic halls and studios, permanent practices at the best venues, 4 regular choral competitions with valuable prizes. Binding Downside School to the Catholic Church allowed to create an amazing, huge library, which has no analogues in the UK: it is especially appreciated by A-level students who chose courses in history, philosophy, art, classical languages, etc. In general, the school pays much attention to the study of classical history and languages: here one of the best in the country courses in Latin, Hebrew, Greek. Catholic education of schoolchildren helps them to become more tolerant, well-bred, harmonious personalities - regular conversations with the tutor, regular developing events, obligatory Sunday Mass, interesting cognitive excursions and lectures are provided for this.
