Downs Junior School, a popular and lively establishment, presently the largest junior school in Brighton & Hove with just over five hundred pupils aged between seven and eleven. The school is situated close to Blakers Park and adjacent to Ditchling Road leading up to the vibrant Fiveways area of Brighton.
The late Victorian school, built in the 1890’s, is now a Grade 2 listed property. A great deal of thought has gone into keeping its best features whilst providing up to date educational facilities.
Adult Dance Brighton Classes are held in the recently built and sympathetically designed annex on the North side of the site, which houses the large dinning hall. It can be seen on the left-side of the photo of the school above, built in newer, lighter coloured brickwork.
Access to the dinning hall annex for the classes is through the double mesh gates, located on the Grantham Road side of the school.
These are on the left, next to the smaller wrought iron gate to the playground.
Please see the map and the photographs for further details.
The full address of the school is below, but don’t forget – Grantham Road Entrance.
