If you are considering sending your children to Drayton Park School we always welcome visits from parents and children. This is the best way to get a feel for the school and to see how we work first hand. Please ring the school office on 01908 618137 to make an appointment.
Admissions to our school are co-ordinated by Milton Keynes council.

Most children live within the catchment area, which is the northern part of the Lakes Estate, including Stoke Road south from Plough Corner and the southern boundary being a line from Stoke Road through the Warren playground, Sir Herbert Leon School and Drayton Road. However, we welcome children from outside this area providing there are spaces within the year group.

Additionally we take 3 year olds in January if their birthdays fall between September and December the previous year. Please see below for the application form to our nursery.
