History of Donhead

Donhead today

The Donhead of today is in robust health, with September 2018 seeing the completion of the school's ten year, £8m facilities development; the final stage giving the benefit of four new air-conditioned classrooms, a Chapel, an Art Centre and a 150-seat Auditorium for Music and Drama. Donhead now boasts a suitable range of facilities to offer an excellent and broad education to boys from 4-11 years of age. In addition, Donhead's academic, sporting and musical programmes have, between them, recently secured 33 Scholarship Awards to major independent public schools. Donhead has more than doubled in size between 2006 and 2016 and now offers the highest quality of preparatory school education, within the Jesuit tradition.
