We provide all children aged 4-11 with a broad, balanced and creative curriculum where all children are given a chance to shine. Thank you for showing an interest in our school. Please take the time to browse around our new and improved website.

Church Schools

Stanton-in-Peak School was built in 1879 and at that time it consisted of a school and schoolhouse.

It is now a Church of England voluntary controlled school. This means the Trustees, rather than the State or the LA, own it. Unlike some ‘Faith Schools’, a Church of England school’s aim is to provide a service to all the children of the parish, whether or not their parents attend church. However the school is proud to be a church school and the school ethos is broadly Christian.

As a Church of England controlled school we have two Foundation Governors. Their role is to maintain the Church’s influence on all aspects of the school. As in all schools we are inspected by Ofsted and, in addition to this, we also receive a second inspection of our Church School status.
