Headteacher’s Welcome

Headteacher’s welcome

Droxford Junior School is a beautiful rural school, in the Meon valley, nestled into the hills of the South Downs National Park.  A school has been in the village since the mid 1800s – the current school opened between the wars in 1929.

Today our families come from far and wide.  We have two fantastic feeder Infant schools and our confident and happy children move on to be successful in a number of state and private secondary settings.

I have been at the school for ten years and have seen it grow into an outstanding school for our children.  We have a team of highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants; very proactive governors and incredibly supportive parents.  Our friendly and kind children access a contextual curriculum that provides dynamic opportunities to develop skills and enquiry based learning.

We ensure that we provide outstanding enrichment opportunities that enable all our children to move on to the next stages of their learning with confidence and maturity.  Our school has also proved to be highly successful academically and our children make excellent attainment and progress.  We have been one of Hampshire’s top performing junior schools for a number of years and last year Droxford Junior School was in the 150 of top performing schools nationally!

Our curriculum is also linked to the geography and history of the South Downs national park and we work closely with the park authority to contextually enliven the learning.  All four year groups attend residentials as well as going on exciting day trips including the National gallery and British museum in London.

We also offer the children a raised awareness of further education by engaging with the local universities – the children actually going to University themselves for a day!  Closer to home we offer a range of clubs to participate throughout the year including:  football, cricket, French, film, dance, golf, STEM, judo, violin, guitar, art and drama to name a few.

Currently we have places available for an immediate start in Years 3 and 5.

Enquiries for admissions and to see our lovely school can be made through the school office
