Droxford Junior School is located in the village of Droxford within the beautiful South Downs National Park.
Although some children live in the village itself the catchment area is wider and takes in a variety of communities in the Meon Valley.
Droxford Junior School retains a village ethos but has a cutting edge curriculum for learning. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards and laptops and tablets are used on a wireless network. The children also have access to a well-stocked library, an ICT suite and a large, modern hall for PE and drama.
The uniqueness of the local environment is reflected in the curriculum. Strong community and business links are utilised. We actively participate in local events including sport competitions and the Droxford country fair.
The National School at Droxford was originally built in 1835 at a cost of £150. Pupils paid ‘school pence’ to the National Society for the Education of the Poor.
The current school building was built in a Victorian style in 1929 and had four classrooms. Toilets with earth closets were built the other side of the playground. Domestic subjects were introduced for girls and woodwork for the boys!
