All students at Downlands belong to one of four Houses, all named after areas of natural beauty in Sussex:

Beacon Head of Beacon: Mr M Ashdown
South Downs Head of South Downs: Mr J Chandler
Weald Head of Weald: Mr S Adams
Wolstonbury Head of Wolstonbury: Mr R Davies

Each House comprises students from all year groups. Students at Downlands are awarded Achievement Points for outstanding work and there are fierce rivalries between the Houses for the most points.

Once every term each House has a morning assembly with the Head of House. There are inter-House competitions throughout the year including Maths challenges and Sports Day.
