Memories of Boxley

Boxley School

Hi, I have recently bought a silver trench watch dated 1915/16 with the following inscription D C M Boxley School 1910-17. My guess is that it was a gift to a teacher who had been called up for the first world war. Would anyone know where this school is? Or who was D C M ? Any ideas would be gratefully received. Thanks Paul.
