Welcome to Drake’s Primary School

I would like to welcome you to our website, it should give you the essence of our school and some useful information.  I believe that Drakes is a very special place, where a dedicated emphasis on teaching and learning to high standards sits comfortably alongside the provision of a safe and happy space for our children to learn and develop as rounded, vibrant individuals.  

I am extremely proud of our children and the positive, happy individuals we see growing up here. I am sure the consensus in the village is that the school is a valuable part of our community offering an excellent environment for our children over these critical early years.

Enjoy browsing our website and please don’t hesitate to call us to arrange to visit or if you’d like a chat.
