As part of our partnership with local universities, Downderry hosted a professional development day, to supportpost graduate students at Greenwich University:
‘Downderry was amazing. The children were so polite and lovely and that can only come from having a strong and consistent staff team, which leads me to believe that they support each other well and leadership really care about their staff. I would like to work in a school like that.’
Thank you for the on-going support of the partnership.
