Jenny Jones Home Coming Tour
Downend School welcomed Winter Olympic Bronze Medallist Jenny Jones yesterday (03 March) as the official starting point of her 'homecoming parade'. Fifty of our students, specially selected for their commitment to sporting excellence, formed her welcome party and had the opportunity to ask questions and pose for photographs with an Olympic Medal! The school also featured on nearly every type of media outlet from Twitter to the national news, with students and staff being interviewed about their experience of meeting the inspirational athlete. Please see the following link for a selection of photographs from the event

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.
