Welcome to Drayton State School

Welcome to the home page of the Drayton State School community.
Through the information and links surrounding this page you're sure to find a wealth of information regarding our school, our people, current happenings, special events and more that will help you to learn a little more about our wonderful school and the opportunities that lie within.

Drayton State School is developing a reputation for its sound educational programs and the growth of a great learning community.  With a student population now exceeding 300, at Drayton SS we are 'Striving with Honour to achieve Success', affording our students all of the special features and resources of larger centres, whilst retaining the values and traditions of a smaller family-oriented semi-rural school.

Interschool and team sports, a strong instrumental and arts program, specialist teaching in language, health and physical education and an emphasis upon literacy and numeracy competencies combine for life-long learning. At Drayton SS we strive to create an atmosphere of mutual trust and support for all children. Leadership development, educational excursions and enrichment programs feature, whereby children are nurtured through their formative years by a dedicated staff, keen to support children in developing as capable and socially responsible citizens for the future.

We understand that the education of our students is a shared responsibility involving teachers, parents and children. Therefore we believe the sharing of information is of utmost importance. Whilst our school website is but one starting point, we know that you may still have questions - please feel free to contact us about any issues or concerns you may have by selecting the 'Drop Us an Email' link at the left hand side of the home page on our website.

If you're seeking a primary school education that 'creates opportunity' and opens your child's eyes to worlds of possibility, we would welcome your enquiries about enrolment at Drayton SS.

"Working Together" is one of our fine traditions
of the past and it is also the passport
to success in the future.

Drayton State School is located on the beautiful Darling Downs,
approximately 2 hours drive west of Brisbane.

Drayton State School was first opened in 1851. The first school building was constructed of slabs and bark to accommodate up to 50 children. Now the school has over 300 children currently enrolled including Prep students.  We have 15 Teachers, Support Teachers and Teacher's Aids.  We now have 7 buildings including a new Admin Office, Library, Media Room and a 2 classroom demountable.
