Davenport Public School

Living in Aylmer Menu

Davenport Public School was built in 1956 to serve grades Kindergarten to Eight with 9 classrooms, a library/general purpose room and office area.

In 1972, air-conditioned specialized learning areas (Industrial Arts, Family Studies, Instrumental Music, Visual Arts, Science Lab, and Gymnasium) were added to serve the unique needs of students at the Grade 7 & 8 level. Davenport became a senior elementary school serving Grade 7 and 8 students from the Town of Aylmer and Township of Malahide. Influenced by the addition to Summers Corners Public School and the increase in population at McGregor Public School, Davenport received an addition of 8 air-conditioned classrooms in 1993 and became a Grade 5 to 8 school.

The circular gravel track at Davenport has served as host for the area Track and Field competitions annually and with significant fundraising efforts by students, in the spring of 2001, the gravel track was paved and two additional basketball courts were added in the courtyard.
