The Trafalgar School at Downton is a friendly, rural secondary school, set in the historic village of Downton on the edge of the New Forest.
The Trafalgar School at Downton is at an exciting stage in its development. The School has undergone significant change with a change of Headteacher and expanded leadership team in the last 3 years. The school is continuing its journey towards providing an outstanding education for all our students and becoming the school of choice for Salisbury and the surrounding area. Indeed, we were oversubscribed for Year 7 in September 2016, as well as adding an additional tutor group.
Our school ethos is built firmly on our pillars of Community, Mutual Respect, Pride, Creativity, Resilience, Ambition and Family Atmosphere. Our aim is to develop open-minded, flexible, resilient individuals, with the skills and attitudes to be successful in tomorrow’s society. We are fortunate to have outstanding, forward thinking staff, who continually develop their practice and empower our students to be the source of their own success.
