From The Principal

Dowen College is an independent boarding and day school for children aged 10 to 18 years. Dowen offers a broad and balanced education within a friendly, caring and happy environment.
At the heart of a Dowen education lies endless opportunities. We pride ourselves on focusing on the individual student because we appreciate the fact that each child is unique. We mould our students to be global citizens, we therefore teach moral values and excellence through diligence, honesty, discipline, integrity and respect for others.

Each student enjoys the company of bright and highly motivated boys and girls from diverse international backgrounds. Together they are encouraged to establish an understanding and respect for the multicultural society they will meet when they leave school. Each student in the school has a wealth of strengths and potential and we encourage all of them to dream big, set goals for themselves and feel secure in the knowledge that they are valued and respected.

The ethos and atmosphere of a school are crucial, Teenagers need a well- structured programme with clear guidelines and sense of purpose for they are most likely to flourish in a relaxed, kind and friendly environment. Visitors to Dowen College frequently comment on the affability and good manners of the students. This makes us very proud. With over 450 students Dowen College today is a vibrant, dynamic and warm community. Our children thrive on expert teaching, small classes, and state of the art facilities which include a home environment boarding house and choice co-curricular activities.

Our academic results are impressive and our students qualify for admissions in to reputable international colleges and universities where they continue to blaze the trail and also maintain close link with their alma mater through the alumni association.

Our primary ambition is to see that all our students leave Dowen with gloriously happy memories of their school and with the skill and confidence to cope with whatever challenges life may throw their way.

Dowen College is blessed with a crop of well-qualified, dedicated and committed staff. Our teachers constantly strive to improve on their own performance by regularly undergoing professional development courses and training. The College as a matter of policy sends four teachers to the UK for training annually. The teachers are creative, talented and accept responsibilities for their classrooms.

We invite you to come and experience the unique atmosphere of Dowen College.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family.

Sincerely yours,

Mrs. Togonu-Bickersteth
