Headteacher’s welcome

It is with pride and pleasure that I welcome you to Droxford Junior School via our website.  This site is designed for all parents to gather what information you need to support your child’s learning experience at this fantastic school!  If you need to speak to someone, our knowledgeable and friendly office staff are always at hand for support and advice if you require it.

Personally I am delighted to be the new headteacher of the school, after originally being the deputy here for seven years.  I now have a new deputy, Miss Sarah Jacobs, who has also been teaching at Droxford Junior School for three years and has leadership experience in other settings.  Together we have the knowledge and understanding of this unique school coupled with our leadership experience and strong governor and local authority support, to move Droxford forward in a new and exciting direction.  We also retain a mix of new and experienced teaching staff whose sole, moral purpose is to motivate and inspire!

By way of an introduction Droxford Junior School has a ‘village school’ ethos with a constantly evolving, contemporary curriculum for learning. The children work hard to be both successful and confident learners. Enthusiastic and experienced staff are fully committed to work in partnership with our parents to offer a powerful blend of support and challenge. The proactive governors take a genuine interest in ensuring the children benefit from a high quality learning environment in which they feel safe, happy and motivated.  We work closely with our two feeder infant schools to aid smooth transition for your children from KS1 to KS2.  We then collaborate closely with Swanmore College and other secondary schools as children leave our school as successful, well-rounded and happy individuals.

We also have a set of strong ‘core values’ which underpin all that we do and we take pride in inspiring our children to make good or better progress. I personally feel very privileged in sharing the learning experience and in leading such a great team!  If you would like to see us in action please contact the school office. There are regular open days and induction events but individual visits can also be made.

Together we can make Droxford Junior School outstanding for your child.
