Our school

Drayton State School was first opened in 1851 and is located on the beautiful Darling Downs, approximately two hours drive west of Brisbane. The first school building was constructed of slabs and bark to accommodate up to 50 children. Now the school has over 330 children currently enrolled including 50 Prep students. We have over 35 staff based at our school including teachers, support teachers, specialist teachers, teacher aides, cleaners, a groundsman and administration personnel. We have a diverse array of learning environments in which our students learn and play, including interactive whiteboards in all indoor learning areas.

Our staff are caring, experienced, professional, personal and dedicated. On the basis of the Australian Curriculum, we work tirelessly every day to ensure that we are providing the best opportunities for our children socially and academically. We plan for, teach and assess students according to their level of achievement, areas of interest and expertise, and their individual learning needs.

Our school is not enrolment managed and as such, students from all around our local area are welcome to enrol at Drayton State School.
