It is over 80 years since Drayton Manor opened in 1930 and we continue to build on the successes of the past to put the school in the best possible position for the next 80 years.
Perhaps the fact that we have only our fifth Head of Drayton Manor in all that time says something about the school and how it plans systematically for the future.
Drayton Manor is a calm and purposeful place where good manners and good behaviour are considered essential. We have no doubt that this moral education and the way it is combined with academic prowess is one of the main reasons that the school is so oversubscribed.
The school has very high standards and everyone knows what is expected of them and this helps create what Ofsted describe as “the extremely harmonious atmosphere”. This allows us to support individuals so they make outstanding progress. Our teachers have excellent subject knowledge and are adept at, not only preparing our students for examinations but for building their confidence so they are very well prepared for their future lives, whatever their chosen path.
