Visit of HRH The Duke of Gloucester. KG, GCVO – Monday 2 October
We are delighted to announce that HRH The Duke of Gloucester will be visiting Downlands on Monday to open our amazing new teaching block.
We have named the facility ‘The Rose Hetherton Building’ after our former Headteacher who made such an important contribution to the development of the school. Mrs Hetherton has also been helping us out with the building project in her retirement.
This is the first royal visit in Downlands’ 67-year history so it is a momentous occasion for the school and a very exciting time for us all.
