Everything at Downe House Muscat is designed to encourage, stimulate, and inspire girls. The school aims to promote genuine personal enquiry and intellectual appetite. It nurtures individual talents and interests beyond the academic sphere and fosters a culture of inclusivity and respect for others.
What does it mean to be a Downe House girl? The answer is in the key characteristics known as the Downe House DNA – Compassion, Collaboration, Resilience, Creativity, Aspiration, Communication, being Outward Looking and Digital Ready.
In the classroom, on the playing field and everywhere in between, these core values are the hope, aim and challenge for every girl. We give the girls every opportunity to develop these eight important skills and characteristics through all aspects of life at Downe House.
