Darley Churchtown C of E Primary School is a happy, caring and inclusive school where children can thrive in a positive atmosphere. Our motto is ‘Be The Best That You Can Be’ which permeates through every aspect of school life.
Our school is closely linked to St Helen’s Church which is practically next door to us. We are a Church School serving the local community. We want every child to ‘Live life in all it’s fullness’ (John 10.10) from the moment they begin their school journey with us.
The school is a historic building, some of which dates back to 1911, set in a beautiful part of Darley Dale, surrounded by stunning countryside. It is close to the historic Whitworth Park and Institute as well as the site of Peak Park Rail.
The school is one building set in its own grounds, with use of the church field opposite. The school has 4 classrooms, library and a small hall as well as outdoor EYFS area and playgrounds for both Infant and Junior children.
