Parent & Student Testimonials

"Our grandson is just so happy at this excellent school it is not true! And he is positively thriving. Such a warm atmosphere where excellence is taught, encouraged and rewarded."

"I cannot say how grateful I am to the staff and management of this wonderful school. My two children transferred here after problematic starts to their education in local primaries. The difference in attitude and standards at this establishment were both immediate and profound and both children have thrived and become their best selves thanks to the care, attention and high standard of education that they have received at Downham Prep. I cannot thank Mrs Sharpe, Mr Jefferson and their team enough for all that they have done for my boy and girl, and for the family as a whole. If you are considering this school for your own children, I can only say do not hesitate, it is worth every penny and more."

"I went to Downham Prep from 2004/5 until 2011. Some of my fondest memories include being a part of the school shows that were put on every year (they were so much fun and I loved that everyone was involved) and the amazing teachers there who were always so lovely and encouraging! I loved being a table monitor and house captain in year 6 and am still in touch with some of the friends I made at Downham. I have just finished my first year of studying Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge and am very excited to start second year soon."

"I went to the school in nursery and reception, left for year 1 and came back in year 2, I then stayed there for the rest of primary school. Some of my fondest memories of the school include;

  • Summer school around the campfire singing songs and having some of the best summer's ever.
  • The summer show every year! (Always a favourite of mine due to my passion for performing)
  • Mrs Sharpe's funny stories about all sorts of things
  • Going out to the school pond for various lessons
  • Watching the chicks hatch and grow every year/ school pets
  • The amazing school trip opportunities

These are only a few of the many amazing memories I have of the school! Primary school was the best time of my life and I would do anything to go back!"
