The human fruit machine at the School Fair 2016


The Downlands Association is made up of a combination of dedicated parents and staff who work as a team to raise funds to enhance the school environment.  Every pupils benefits from the fundraising efforts of the Downlands Association and in the past year new table tennis tables, picnic tables have been financed by them.  Whether you would like to join the main organising committee or just offer your assistance for selected events, please contact the school if you are interested in getting involved.  All parents are automatically a member of the DSA so please pop along to one of our meetings – everyone is welcome!

The 2017 Christmas Market will be on Saturday 25 November 2017 from 10am to 1pm.  Volunteers to help should contact Nicki Burston at school in the first instance (
