The Downs Church of England Primary School is a two form intake school for children ranging from 4 - 11 years old. It is set in substantial grounds with sea views accessible from the main areas of residential housing in Walmer and Deal.

The Downs school seeks to provide a broad and balanced curriculum working closely with parents (not least through the PTA), Governors, and community groups, especially through it's link with Walmer Parish Churches.
