Welcome to Donhead
A Jesuit School where children are honoured, cared for and believed in
The Donhead of 2016 is in robust health. This September saw the completion of our 10 year, £8m facilities development, with the final stage giving us the benefit of four new air-conditioned classrooms, a Chapel, an Art Centre and a 150-seat Auditorium for Music and Drama. The St Nicholas Owen Building was officially opened by Bishop Nicholas Hudson (Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster and old boy of Donhead), accompanied by Fr Dermot Preston SJ (Provincial of the British province of the Society of Jesus), and Fr Paul Fletcher SJ (Jesuit Superior in Wimbledon) on 21st September 2016.

- Senior Choir – Mondays (8th May to 3rd July inclusive)
- Donhead Choir – Tuesdays (2nd May to 11th July inclusive, but NOT 23rd May)
- Orchestra (non-auditioned, pre-Grade 1 players upwards) - Wednesdays (3rd May to 5th July inclusive)
There is further information about all these groups on the Music Curriculum webpage.
