Duke girls lacrosse: Kerstin Kimel – Head Coach – Women’s Lacrosse Coaches
Kerstin Kimel – Head Coach – Women’s Lacrosse Coaches
The only head coach in Duke women’s lacrosse history, Kerstin Kimel has led the program from its inception in 1996, molding the Blue Devils into one of the nation’s elite teams.
In Kimel’s 25 seasons at the helm of Duke women’s lacrosse, she has guided the Blue Devils to seven national semifinals, four ACC regular season titles, an ACC Tournament Championship and 19 NCAA Tournament appearances.
A five-time ACC Coach of the Year, Kimel has overseen 33 All-America selections making up for 101 honors, 85 all-region honorees and 76 All-ACC picks. Seven of her former players have represented their countries on the world’s stage, competing at the 2009, 2013 and 2017 World Cups. The Blue Devils have achieved equal success in the classroom during Kimel’s tenure, collecting 74 Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Academic Honor Roll accolades since 1997.
Kimel recorded her 300th career victory Feb.
Kimel was honored with an IWLCA Service Award in November, 2016 for her work as co-chair of the NCAA Division I Legislation Committee to slow down early recruiting within the sport. She was presented with the IWLCA’s highest award, the Diane Geppi-Aikens Memorial Award, in November, 2015.
Duke returned to the NCAA semifinals to punctuate an outstanding 16-5 campaign in 2015. Led by a veteran group of eight seniors, the Blue Devils concluded the season ranked fourth in the final national poll. Attacker Kerrin Maurer became Duke’s career assist leader and garnered first team All-America recognition from the IWLCA. Goalkeeper Kelsey Duryea headlined the Blue Devils’ three All-America selections in 2016, and concluded an outstanding career as one of just three goalkeepers in ACC history to top 600 saves for her career. She ranked among the nation’s leaders in save percentage while anchoring Duke to an 11-9 ledger and a trip to the NCAA second round.
Draw control specialist Olivia Jenner became the program’s all-time leader in the category during the 2018 campaign and continued to climb the NCAA record book as a senior, wrapping up her career with 512 draw controls. She also earned second team All-America recognition from the IWLCA in 2019 and helped the Blue Devils lead the nation in draw control percentage.
The Blue Devils recorded 14 or more wins four times from 2009 to 2014, advancing to the national quarterfinals on five occasions and the semifinals in 2011. Under Kimel’s watch, Duke produced 13 All-America selections during that time, while Emma Hamm (2011) and Carolyn Davis (2009) were named finalists for the Tewaaraton Trophy. Led by Davis and Caroline Cryer, the 2009 squad rewrote the program’s offensive record book, totaling team highs in goals scored (313), assists (150) and points (463). In 2013, Duryea became the first goalkeeper in program history to receive All-America recognition as a rookie, rounding out the season ranked top-10 nationally in save percentage and saves per game.
From 2004 to 2008, Duke put together one of the most successful stretches in program history, advancing to four consecutive national semifinals from 2005 to 2008 and earning at least a share of four-straight ACC regular season titles from 2004 to 2007. During that span, the Blue Devils placed 21 players on both All-America and all-region lists, in addition to posting three Tewaaraton finalists. Kimel led Duke to a 13-8 overall record and the Blue Devils’ fourth-straight NCAA semifinal appearance in 2008, earning womenslax.com Coach of the Year honors for her efforts.
Led by Tewaaraton Trophy recipient and two-time ACC Player of the Year Katie Chrest, the 2005 and 2006 Duke squads combined for a 35-7 overall record, including a program-best 18 victories in 2006, a 7-2 mark in the ACC and two conference regular season titles.
From 2000 to 2002, the Blue Devils advanced to three consecutive NCAA Tournament quarterfinals, and in 2001, made the program’s first ACC Championship game. However, success did not always come easy, as Duke’s 12th women’s varsity program began its inaugural season in 1996 with four-straight losses before earning the Devils’ first win — a 10-6 victory over UMBC on March 18, 1996. Duke began its rapid ascension the following season, recording an 8-8 mark before breaking through in 1998 with the program’s first NCAA Tournament bid. The 1999 season took Duke to new heights as the Blue Devils achieved the program’s first trip to the NCAA semifinals.
Kimel’s Early Years
Prior to her arrival at Duke, Kimel was the head coach at Davidson College, leading the newly-created Wildcats program to a 4-8 record in 1994 as one of the nation’s youngest head coaches in her first and only season at Davidson.
Kimel was no stranger to NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse before her time at Davidson, having played at the University of Maryland from 1990-93. During her career, she led the Terrapins to four consecutive national semifinal appearances and the 1992 NCAA National Championship. The Havertown, Pa., native was a two-time All-America selection and the 1993 NCAA National Defensive Player of the Year, appearing in Sports Illustrated’s “Faces in the Crowd.” Kimel graduated from Maryland in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in speech communications.
Prior to her collegiate career, Kimel was a standout at Haverford High School, earning first team All-Central League, All-Delaware County and USWLA All-America honors. Her numerous accomplishments have landed her in both the Haverford Hall of Fame and the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame – Delaware County.
Kimel has also been a prominent figure on the international level as a member of the U. S. Elite Team from 1992-96 and as an alternate for the U.S. national team that captured a gold medal at the 1993 World Cup.
In addition, Kimel served as chair of the IWLCA Growth Committee from 1999-2000 and as Chair of the NCAA South Region Selection Committee. From 1998-2002, she was on the selection committee for the U.S. Elite/Development squads, also working as an assistant coach for the U.S. Development squad from 2000-03. Kimel has also worked as Chair of the IWLCA/USL Division I All-America committee and completed a four-year term as a member of the NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Committee in 2007. In 2006, she became co-chair of the IWLCA External Relations Committee and served on the Tewaaraton award selection committee in 2008. During the summer of 2008, Kimel was elected to the IWLCA Board of Directors and acts as a Division I representative.
Most recently, Kimel served as Co-Chair of the IWLCA Recruiting Issues Committee from 2014-16 and is currently the Chair of the IWLCA Division I Legislative Committee and the South Region FBS representative on the NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Committee.
The Kimel Family Tree
Kimel’s family tree includes many outstanding athletes, beginning with her father, Mike Manning, who played basketball at West Chester University, and her mother, Sallie Manning, who was a member of the tennis and field hockey squads at West Chester. Both her brother, Mike, and husband, Jack, played baseball at Western Carolina before moving on to play for the Texas Rangers organization, while her sister, Lindsay, played lacrosse at James Madison University and served as an assistant coach for the 2003 and 2007 World Champion U.S. under-19 teams. Her extended family also includes five collegiate basketball players – uncles Ed (Villanova) and Chris Manning (Philadelphia College of Textile) and cousins Alicia Manning (Lafayette), Marissa Manning (Kings College) and Christina Manning (Muhlenberg College) – one collegiate swimmer – uncle John Manning (Villanova) – two baseball players – cousins Brian Manning (Villanova) and Pat Manning (Atlanta Braves minor league) – and one hockey standout – brother-in-law Matt Mulhern (Boston College).
Kimel’s eldest daughter, Frances “Caroline”, continued the trend of being a collegiate athlete as a member of the East Carolina women’s lacrosse team. At East Carolina, Caroline reunited with former Duke assistant coach and East Carolina head coach Amanda Moore. On March 10, 2020, Kerstin was able to see her daughter play collegiate lacrosse for the first time as she coached against her in Duke’s game against East Carolina.
Kimel and her husband Jack reside in Durham with their three children – daughters Frances “Caroline” and Claire and son Russell McKinley “Mac.”

Lacrosse: Previewing Northwestern’s quarterfinal matchup vs Duke
After a dominant 19-4 win over Denver last Sunday, No. 2 Northwestern (14-0, 11-0 B1G) will face No. 7 Duke (11-7, 4-6 ACC) in a quarterfinal matchup this Saturday, again hosting at Martin Stadium.
Duke is coming off a narrow escape, beating Maryland 13-12 in their second-round matchup this past weekend. While Maryland is an opponent this Northwestern team knows well, beating them three times this season (including once in the Big Ten Championship), Northwestern has yet to face Duke or any non-conference opponents save for Denver so far this season.
The Blue Devils are one of five ACC teams in the NCAA Tournament, all of which still remain here in the quarterfinals (North Carolina, Syracuse, Boston College and Notre Dame are the other four). The ‘Cats beat Duke last season 24-20 in Durham, but since then the Blue Devils have added a talented weapon in Gabby Rosenzweig, a Graduate transfer from the University of Pennsylvania. She has 25 goals on the season, good for third on the team behind Graduate student Catherine Cordrey and her 27, as well as Senior Katie Cronin, who leads Duke with 30 goals total.
Another player to watch is Maddie Jenner — a Junior who has a staggering 180 draw controls on the season. Following their win last week, Northwestern head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller said that knows what to expect with Jenner, having coached her in 2019.
“I had her on my U-19 team, so I’m very familiar with her,” she said. “I know a lot of their weapons. We’ll be very excited to host them, and to have a chance to play against a really strong opponent.”
Jenner should make for an exciting matchup against Northwestern’s Jill Girardi, who had a strong showing last week against Denver with 12 draw controls, five caused turnovers and three ground balls.
Northwestern still leads the nation in total offense, averaging 20.50 goals per game, while Duke ranks 26th in this category, scoring 14 goals per game.
Five ‘Cats were tabbed in the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association’s (IWLCA) all-region nominees, with Izzy Scane, Lauren Gilbert, Ally Palermo and Lindsey McKone receiving first-team honors, while Sammy Mueller also was selected to the second-team.
Unsurprisingly, with Scane’s eight-goal effort against the Pioneers, she was named the IWLCA’s National Player of the Week.
Fans can likely expect another dominant effort from the ‘Cats’ superstar in a well-fought matchup. Scane is inching closer to a 100-goal season, as she already sits at an impressive mark of 89, breaking the Northwestern single-season scoring title of 86 that was set by Shannon Smith in 2011. Courtney Murphy of Stony Brook currently holds the NCAA single-season goals record at 100, set in 2016 over 21 games. Even more impressively, Scane has managed to reach 89 goals in only 14 games, due to the conference-only regular season.
As per Illinois state guidelines, Martin Field will now be able to hold additional capacity for spectators, including students, for the first time this year. While previously family and friends of players were allowed to request tickets, 100 tickets were made available for general admission for the quarterfinals.
Should Northwestern emerge victorious over Duke this Saturday, they will earn a trip to the Final Four next week in Towson, Maryland, giving them consecutive semifinal appearances in the NCAA Lacrosse Championships, as they were eliminated in the 2019 Final Four by the eventual champions in the Maryland Terrapins.
Maryland women’s lacrosse’s comeback falls short, defeated by No. 7 Duke, 13-12
Facing its largest deficit of the afternoon, Maryland women’s lacrosse had to fight for its season against the No. 7-seeded Duke Blue Devils.
Cue the May sisters, as attackers Catie and Libby contributed on four straight goals, connecting with one another on two of those. Attacker Hannah Leubecker added to the run from the free position, pushing Maryland’s run to five.
The Terrapins were able to gain the final possession with 26.8 second left, but it was too little too late, as Maryland’s final shot at the net was just poked out by goalkeeper Sophia LeRose to seal the defeat for the Terps, 13-12.
This was a season unlike any other for the Terrapins, as this loss marks the first time since 2008 that they have failed to make it to the Final Four.
“We weren’t letting up at all,” head coach Cathy Reese said. “To see the fight that this group had and their determination and the heart that they played with was pretty special.”
Catie May added, “I’m proud to be a part of a team that fights so hard and worked so hard for each other. This was a tough year and we’ve overcome a lot. I’m just so proud of everyone for giving our all and working so hard together.”
Maryland and Duke renewed its rivalry on Sunday as the fight for a spot in the quarterfinals commenced in Durham.
Although the initial offensive possession did not connect for the Terps, a free position save by goalkeeper Emily Sterling on the other end segued into a transition score.
Off of the ground ball pickup, defender Lizzie Colson darted the length of the field before dishing it to Libby May, who then found attacker Brindi Griffin down low for the opening goal.
A green card by May initiated a woman-up scenario for the Blue Devils, one in which it capitalized on to tie it up. Attackers Katie DeSimone and Anna Callahan then added scores of their own to take an early 3-1 lead.
Maryland’s offense was severely lacking in the opening minutes, with midfielder Shaylan Ahearn’s free position goal being just the second shot for the team.
After falling behind 4-2, Colson broke up a Duke attack with a picture perfect interception, leading to May taking it strong side for her sixth goal of the weekend.
Another interception by the Tewaaraton finalist — this time being a one-handed pickoff of midfielder Catriona Barry — led to another offensive chance by the Terrapins, one that Leubecker took advantage of to make it a 5-4 ballgame.
Up to four ground balls and three caused turnovers in the opening 15 minutes, Colson kept the Terrapins hanging around despite the limited offensive opportunities.
Still, Maryland couldn’t put the early deficit past them. The Terps fell behind by two off of a transition goal from attacker Catherine Cordrey before ceding a seventh score to the sixth different Blue Devil.
Needing a boost on a woman-up scenario, Maryland’s offense struggled to penetrate the Blue Devil interior for 82 seconds of its shot clock. That was until Catie May bounced a shot past LeRose, injecting some life into the Terrapins.
The May sisters connected thereafter, as Catie found Libby to make it a one-goal game yet again, but DeSimone responded with her third goal of the afternoon to extend Duke’s lead.
Attacker Gabby Rosenzweig added another goal for good measure to drop the Terps back down to a multi-score deficit heading into the half. Maryland just couldn’t put together scoring runs and the second half presented a heavy challenge for the defending national champs.
Duke and Maryland had similar counting stats in the first half, but the main difference was the failure to piece together scoring runs. The Terps scored consecutive goals only once, and even then there was a nine minute drought by the Blue Devils that only resulted in two scores from Maryland.
“I thought we were hesitant and didn’t respond well to Duke’s pressure,” Reese said. “Once we kind of settled in, I thought we did a much better job overall … offensively it just took us a while to kick things into gear.”
The Terps just didn’t cash in on the opportunities and that sudden halt of momentum following the May sisters’s goals continued into the second half, as two quick goals by the Blue Devils made it 11-6 off of four-straight scores.
Leubecker thwarted more damage by Duke with a pretty spin move for her 57th score of the season, but the Terps had to rattle off a few scores in a row to try and get back into this one.
Rosenzweig wouldn’t let that happen, however, as a quick dodge on Colson opened up the lane for the former Penn standout to bring the lead back up to five. Maryland’s defense continued to implode, as Barry found a wide open lane down the middle.
By that point, Maryland faced a six goal deficit, its largest of the game.
Having to put together a comeback in the final 20 minutes, Catie May was the first to answer with her second goal of the day. A minute later, she found her sister Libby for a second goal in a minute.
With just under ten minutes remaining, Maryland scored its third straight goal as the comeback continued to gain some steam. Once again, it was the May’s making it happen, with Catie finding Libby for the third time today to cut it to 13-10.
After Colson went down with an injury while taking a charge, Maryland continued to find some rhythm late as Libby May assisted midfielder Grace Griffin. Leubecker added to the late onslaught on the free position, making it a one score game.
With 26.8 seconds left, Libby May was able to get a shot off aimed at the top right corner, but LeRose poked the ball out of the way to hand Maryland its first loss in the NCAA Tournament since May 25, 2018.
“This is definitely a growing experience and it’s going to help the team a lot in the future,” Catie May said. “Unfortunately today we ran out of time, but we had moments of greatness and I think that [the returnees] can lean back on that and carry that into the future with them.”
Three things to know
1. Maryland competed on the draw. Going up against midfielder Maddie Jenner and the second-ranked draw control percentage team in the country, the Terps faced an uphill battle. But Maryland didn’t just keep that category respectable, it stuck around with the Blue Devils as the two teams alternated opening possession gains. Attacker Hannah Warther had five, while Ahearn and Colson had four a piece as Maryland and Duke both finished with 13.
2. Katie DeSimone was a force. A major thorn in Maryland’s side today was true freshman DeSimone. A top-5 recruit from Bay Shore, New York, DeSimone built off of her four goal debut in the NCAA Tournament versus Mount St. Mary’s with another four goal outing in the matchup against the Terrapins. She was extremely efficient too, missing just two shots today after going 4-for-4 in Friday’s first round match.
3. The Terrapins will be back. This was a tough year for the Terps. They fell short of expectations after being ranked in the top-10 by Inside Lacrosse in the preseason polls. They had to navigate a conference only schedule amid a global pandemic, resulting in the worst regular season win percentage of Reese’s tenure. But Reese is no fan of excuses.
The bright future of the Terrapins — which features Libby May (nine goals scored in the tournament) and Hannah Leubecker (57 goals on the year) — plus a solid foundation of returning seniors should make Maryland a force once again in 2022.
“I’m definitely looking forward to their growth as a unit, but we need to get back to some sense of normalcy so we have that opportunity,” Reese said.
Women’s Lacrosse: No. 4 Notre Dame Downs No. 7 Duke, 13-9
Bridget Deehan proved Sunday that she’s one of the ACC’s top goaltenders, stopping 12 shots in a 13-9 Notre Dame victory over Duke in Durham, N.C.
The senior netminder repeatedly stymied Blue Devils attackers, turning away four of Duke’s seven first-half attempts, including this gorgeous kick save on a Blue Devils fast break.
Nine different players tallied goals for the No. 4 Irish (5-2, 2-2 ACC), who notched their second road win over a ranked team in one week. The No. 7 Blue Devils (6-4, 2-3 ACC) got 4 points (3 goals, 1 assist) from freshman attack Katie DeSimone in the losing effort.
Notre Dame’s ability to win in the draw circle and finish second-chance scoring opportunities helped it stake out an 8-3 halftime lead. After ceding the game’s first goal, the Irish scored four in a row. Senior midfielder Andie Aldave, named this offseason to the Tewaaraton Award watch list for best overall player, scored her first goal of the season. Attack Maddie Howe, Aldave’s classmate, followed five minutes later with her 14th goal of the year. Graduate attack Jessi Masinko notched her seventh of the season following Deehan’s kick save and Aldave added her second to make it 4-1.
Sophomore Madison Ahern earned a yellow card, giving Duke a woman-up advantage. DeSimone capitalized on a free position attempt to make it 4-2, but Hannah Dorney deposited a rebound in the back of the net for the Irish three minutes later.
The Irish had their own woman-up advantage following a Duke yellow card. Sixth-year attack Samantha Lynch capitalized, scoring her team-leading 21st goal. Sophomore attack Jackie Wolak added two goals before half.
At half, the Irish had outshot the Blue Devils 21-9 (16-7 on goal), picked up more ground balls (14 to 8), won more draw controls (8 to 5) and committed fewer fouls (15 to Duke’s 18).
The second half was almost the opposite, as junior attack Maddie Jenner began dominating Aldave in the draw control circle. The Blue Devils won 8 of 12 draws, leading to 17 shots in the Irish’s end (14 on goal) to the Irish’s eight. Notre Dame capitalized on their few opportunities, however, scoring on five of six shots on goal. Three of those came against senior goalie Chase Henriquez, who replaced the injured Julia Rose about halfway through the second frame.
The Irish’s second-half goals were scored by sophomore midfielder Kasey Choma (who found the back of the net twice), graduate midfielder Erin McBride, sophomore attack Madison Ahern (off a free position attempt) and a second goal from Lynch during a woman-up opportunity.
Notre Dame will continue its ACC road tour with a noon EDT contest Saturday against Virginia. The Cavaliers are 8-2, having beaten Virginia Tech, Louisville in ACC play, splitting a series with Duke and having lost to Boston College. ACC Network Extra will host a livestream.90,000 How To Watch ESPN’s ’30 For 30 ‘Series About The Duke Of Lacrosse Scandal That Haunts You Today

Downe House School | Girls’ schools
Characteristics of the school
Downe House is one of the most prestigious private boarding schools for girls aged 11-18.The educational institution has been famous for its strong academic traditions and firm Christian principles for over 100 years. The school was founded in 1907 on the former estate of Charles Darwin and moved to its current location in 1921. Olivia Willis was the first Downe House director to head the institution for 40 years. Disillusioned with the education that existed at that time, she dreamed of creating a boarding school for girls of a new type, in which a certain amount of freedom would be present, the natural course of life would be preserved.The director believed that high educational standards, emotionality and a passionate interest in the world around them should become the hallmarks of the new school. Olivia was convinced that educators should not “stand on a pedestal” and that education for girls should be different from education for boys. These foundational principles are of the utmost importance to the work of the school today.
Downe House trains girls from different parts of the UK, as well as foreign students, mainly from European countries.
Location: Downe House is located in the town of Newbury, 90 kilometers from London, 45 minutes from Heathrow Airport. It covers an area of 110 acres in a beautiful forested area.
Features of admission: the school is selective. For admission at the age of 11, you must successfully pass the Common Entrance Examination and be tested on the day appointed by the school. To enter the Sixth Form, you must pass at least 7 GCSE / IGCSE exams at a level not lower than “B”.
Number and age of students: 560 people aged 11-18, including about 180 Sixth Form students. The number of full-board students: 560. An enviable ratio of teachers and students – 1: 5.4.
School ranking: 25th place in the ranking of the best English private schools for girls in 2012 (based on the results of the A-level exam).
Down House relies on an individual approach, instills traditional values and supports girls in their search for an area in which they can express themselves.As a result, female students of the school are graduated not only with excellent certificates, but also with a clear understanding of the direction in which they can succeed. The educational institution uses all the advantages of a private boarding school. Its main assets are the availability of time and space. Without being bound by the framework of a traditional school day, girls have the opportunity to study each subject in detail and at the same time master the widest possible range of academic disciplines.
But education at Down House is much more than just academic success.The school’s leadership sees its goal in bringing up the little girls who came to them at the age of 11 to become true “global citizens of the future”. They thoughtfully prepare schoolgirls for a successful international career, instilling in them the necessary flexibility, international thinking, a non-standard approach to problem solving, and open-mindedness.
This is facilitated by the special educational space created at Downe House. Students get an idea not only about language and mathematics, but also about a wide variety of areas of knowledge – from art to computer technology, from car devices to cooking, because the school offers a choice of about 40 academic disciplines, as well as a wide range of extracurricular activities.Concerts, performances, lectures by leading experts in various fields of knowledge are organized almost every day at Down House. From a young age, girls learn to live in the midst of human society, strive to solve its problems, in practice they learn the peculiarities of different countries and peoples. They manage to live for several months in France, implement charitable projects in South Africa, Malaysia and India and tour US cities playing lacrosse. Studying at Downe House is a truly exciting adventure.
Girls leave school with the feeling that there is nothing in life that could not be achieved. Thus, Downe House becomes an excellent springboard that allows you to fly very high – towards a wide world in which graduates feel at home.
7-9 years of study: training is based on subjects included in the compulsory state curriculum – National Curriculum: English language and literature, mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry, French, ICT, physical education, music, history, geography, PSHE.Foreign students master the EFL (English as a Foreign Language) course.
At the age of 12, each girl goes to France for an internship for one trimester. Downe House has its own property in the cultural and historical region of France, Périgord Noir. A small cozy estate located in the valley of the Dordogne river among the amazingly beautiful landscapes of the small village of Veyrines de Domme. Downe House is an important part of this community of 200 people, its own town hall, town square and church.Girls get the opportunity not only to improve their French and immerse themselves in the culture of this country. Such an internship gives an unprecedented impetus to the development of each student and remains in their memory for life. Students also learn about the French education system through exchange studies at nearby colleges in Toulouse and Montignac and spend a school day at one of the best culinary schools in France, the Lycee Hotelier, in Quercy-Périgord.
10-11 years of study: compulsory subjects for study – English, mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry.Disciplines to choose from: art, biology, business fundamentals, critical thinking, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Latin, ICT, dance, design and technology, drama and theater studies, economics, English literature, culinary and food technology, higher mathematics, government and politics, history, art history, home economics, geography, music, photography, physical education, religious studies, sports sciences, textiles and fashion.
Sixth Form (12-13 years of study): at the end of school, graduates take, on average, 3-4 exams (A-level or Pre-U). Downe House is convinced that the Pre-U qualification developed at the University of Cambridge is a promising alternative to the A-level. On the one hand, students take exams less often, which allows them to master the subjects more thoroughly. On the other hand, writing your own research project and including the Global Perspectives element makes it much better to prepare girls for university studies.In 2013, Down House School students took Pre-U in 18 subjects. The choice of subjects for obtaining a particular qualification is carried out from the list of academic disciplines listed above (see years 10-11). Schoolgirls are also encouraged to take a 5-month cooking course at the famous Leiths School of food and wine. At any stage, students with difficulties in mastering subjects can be provided with supportive classes on an individual basis (including English for foreign students).
School specialization: education at Downe House is truly university-wide. Here they provide fundamental training not only in the main academic disciplines, but also in the subjects of the aesthetic cycle – music, drama, art. The acting department of the school is considered one of the best in the country. A distinctive feature of the educational institution is the training of each girl according to an individual program, and not only the necessary subjects are selected, but also the teaching method suitable for this particular student.
Study lasts from 9 am to 6 pm (with lunch and tea breaks). Girls study in small classes (from 10 to 22 people, in the Sixth Form – 6-8 students). Each day includes 11 lessons (including homework preparation). After 6 pm it is time for extracurricular activities of choice, dinner, socializing and relaxing with toast and hot chocolate.
100% of graduates go to higher education institutions, with the majority going to Oxford and Cambridge (15%) and other universities of the Russell group (the University of Bristol is especially popular – 16% of those who entered in 2013).Recently, an increasing number of girls are striving to get a place in universities in Ireland and the United States. Students often choose modern foreign languages, natural sciences, English philology, arts, social sciences and politics, economics, medicine and others as specializations. Regardless of which profession the students ultimately choose, Downe House alumni usually achieve a lot.

An anti-stress wellness “Holistic Program” has been developed for the Sixth Form students, in which students attend weekly body balance, Pilates, yoga classes and workshops on aromatherapy, massage and meditation.
Accommodation / Meals
Accommodation: There are 12 hostels on campus. The girls, who entered Downe House at the age of 11, live in one of two cozy Lower School dormitories located in the village of Cold Ash, a short walk (through the park) from the school.This allows young ladies to gently integrate into school life, each time coming to school and leaving “home” – to the boarding school. Younger schoolgirls live for 2-6 people in a room. Their dorms have kitchens and living rooms. There is a playground nearby. At the age of 13, female students move to their assigned homes and live there until they pass their final exams at school. The Sixth Form girls are moving to one of two boarding houses specially adapted for the quality study and autonomous life of older students.The girls have more democratic relationships with mentors, separate bedrooms for 1-2 people and more spacious lounges. They regularly go to the cinema, theater, exhibitions and have the right to freely leave the school grounds on most weekends and during the week. All hostels have their own gardens and are surrounded by forest, which is very convenient for organizing picnics and barbecue parties.
Meals: full board. A wide variety of hot dishes and salads are available. Special diets and hypoallergenic foods are available.Sixth Form students have their own dining room as well as self-catering kitchens.
Individual attention: Each of the houses is headed by a teacher for whom working with children is a vocation. Educators recognize that they have a special privilege to be responsible for the well-being of other people’s children. They know the strengths and weaknesses of each pupil, their phobias, attachments and hobbies, and are ready to help “their” girls in any matter 24 hours a day.Thanks to this, the atmosphere in Down House dorms is truly family-like. For each “new” girl, a “friend” is assigned from among the older students, who will help to adapt in the first months of school life and support in the future.
Each girl who is a Sixth Form student is assigned a personal leader (usually a teacher with similar interests) for ongoing support and advice on her studies and university admission.
Down House has a medical center staffed with highly qualified personnel.A nurse is assigned to each boarding house.
