A brief history…….
Village School began in the early 80’s on land owned by Penguin Books in Ringwood. The founding principal, Carol Glover wanted to provide a progressive, independent primary school with class sizes small enough to allow meaningful interactions between children and teachers
The aim was to provide a relaxed yet stimulating learning environment that would allow children to develop as confident and competent individuals.
In 1985 the school moved to its present site in Holloway Road, Croydon North and continued to follow these main aims. The larger space allowed for the development of the Village Farm and for the Brushy Creek Wetlands.
The school continues to evolve, while remaining true to its original aims. Over the years we have developed our own traditions and terminology that seem perfectly logical to the old timers, but a trifle confusing to the newer parents.
We hope this booklet will provide some answers to your questions and give a little insight into the nature of our community.
