Easter Exam Boosters
As you will be aware, the summer GCSE exams are now only weeks away. As a school we aim to ensure that every student performs to the very best level possible. Although staff offer some extra time after the end of the school day, we recognise that holiday time can also be used very effectively in catching up work and/or preparing for future exams. Please see the link below to find out what subjects are offering 'Easter Exam Boosters' (the document to link to is attached) To find out more about what will be covered, students should talk to their class teachers. We hope that students will make the most of the excellent opportunity these sessions provide. Please note that students attending these sessions will need to bring their own refreshments with them.

After a successful first term, Study Club continues to run from 3.05 to 4.30pm on Monday to Thursday in I1. It is open to all students who want support with their studies or just a place to come and complete their homework. The Study Club is supervised by two members of staff each evening.

Mr William Roberts, MA (Oxon)
Headteacher, Downend School.
Downend School is an exciting and vibrant learning community where every young person is supported to achieve their very best.
At Downend we have high expectations of all our students. We expect them to reflect this in their appearance, attitudes and behaviour. We are shaping the citizens of the future, and encourage our students to be honest, fair and just in their dealings with each other and those in the world around them. We want every student at Downend to have a sense of pride in belonging to our school community.
We aim to offer a very wide range of opportunities both within the classroom and in the wider life of the school, nurturing the talents of every student to ensure their school experience is fulfilling and enriching.
