We run a wide range of activities throughout the year for students along with their parents or carers, teachers and advisers. As part of the University of Cambridge Area Links Scheme, we work particularly (but not exclusively) with maintained sector schools and colleges on the South West Local Authorities of:

  • Bournemouth
  • Cornwall
  • Devon
  • Torbay
  • Dorset
  • Plymouth
  • Poole

School visits

We run a year-round programme of events and visits. This includes day and residential events, plus visits to/from schools and colleges in our link areas.

Details of these will be made available when booking opens. This will begin in September. For more information on these events, please contact the Schools and Colleges Liaison Officer by emailing access@dow.cam.ac.uk.

Teacher information events

Downing recognises the important role that teachers and advisers play in encouraging and supporting prospective applicants to Cambridge. As such, we offer events for teachers. Details of these will be made available when booking opens.
