The Curzon School

Curzon.jpgThe local Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Primary school has close links with the parish and with Kedleston Hall nearby.

The first school in Quarndon was established as a result of a bequest in the will of Sir John Curzon of Kedleston, 3rd Baronet, in 1727. Subsequently, in 1861 The Reverend Alfred, 4th Baron Scarsdale provided money for building a new school next to the land now occupied by St Paul's. This was replaced by the current building  in 1967.

The Curzon school has had a long association with the church, and pupils regularly visit on a Friday morning for assemblies by the church's Open The Book and HOW Puppet teams as well as attending several special weekday services during the year, including a commemoration service for the founding of the school.

Over the years numerous members of St Paul's have served as Foundation Governors for the School and a number of these also served as Chair of Governors.  The school has a long tradition of providing excellent education for children of the parish and surrounding areas as evidenced by the latest OFSTED report.
