Edale has its very own primary school providing education for children aged 4-11; it’s one of the smallest schools in the country with a maximum capacity of only 40 pupils! The school is Church of England (voluntary controlled) and is linked to the village’s church.
The school has had its ups and downs over the years with decreasing pupil numbers and a poor Ofsted report in 2017 but this is now being addressed with a new headteacher and a collaboration with Hope Primary School. The school has its own fundraising group, Friends of Edale School which raises funds to support the pupils at school and runs the ever popular Edale Country Day in June each year.
For more information on the school take a look at the school’s website at www.edale.derbyshire.sch.uk.
