Principal's Welcome

    Welcome to our school!

    Drapers’ Maylands Primary School opened in September 2015 to our first pupils and is growing to become a full two-form entry Primary school. This year we begin Key Stage 2 as our first pupils go into Year 3.  As the newest school in the area, we are very fortunate to enjoy a purposely-designed building with a stunning outdoor space. Inside we have specialist classrooms for design technology, nurture, themed group rooms, Technology Zone and a beautiful library in addition to spacious classrooms for every year group. Our learning environment is carefully designed and Reggio Emilia inspired to create calm and purposeful learning, with organised and uncluttered spaces to focus on development for every child.

    Drapers’ Maylands is the only primary school with outstanding features in Harold Hill, according to Ofsted, and one of the best schools in Essex. We are very proud of our school which has high standards – we are in the top 20% of the whole country, and every pupil that goes on to our sister secondary school, Drapers’ Academy gets a conditional offer at university!
    Our recent Ofsted report says “Pupils behave impeccably well. They are engrossed in their learning and are self-motivated to care for one another.” With small class sizes, and our focus on the individual child we are often mistaken for a private school.
    In addition, we are friendly and welcoming with support for every child through our specialist Thrive programme, lots of outdoor space, a beautiful ‘woodland’ library, a forest school, plus a specialist music programme that lets children learn three instruments. All in our brand new, purpose built building which enables a calm environment to promote good behaviour and more time for learning.
    But the best thing is to visit our school to find out more, which are normally Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tours can be booked by following the link below!
