Early Years, Primary and Secondary Admissions
Making applications for children to join and educational establishment involves important decision making. If your child already attends Downfield, we hope the following information will support you in choosing those next steps. If you are considering joining Downfield, we would like to offer a warm welcome and hope you find everything you need on this page.
Under normal circumstances, we would urge you to visit us here at Downfield so that we could welcome you personally and show you our school. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer this at the present time. However, if and when we are able to welcome you here in person, we will publish dates and organise appointments for groups of parents to visit the school. We very ,much look forward to doing this as soon as it is safe.
In the meantime, please take a look at our video showing our wonderful nursery classroom.
