Pupil Voice

Head Pupils 2020-21


Hello pupils of Downderry,


My name is Selin. Thank you for electing me as your Head Girl. My goal this year is to keep our reputation as an outstanding school and to make sure every pupil is happy at Downderry.


My name is Wisdom. Thank you for electing me as your Head Boy. My ambition this year is to lead us through this difficult time that we’re going through. I want to make Downderry the best school in Lewisham.


Once again, thank you for electing us, and remember, if you believe, you will achieve because trying your best equals success!
