About our school
Creswell is a small ex-mining village in the North-East of Derbyshire, near to Chesterfield and the Peak District. It is famous for Creswell Crags and Creswell Model Village.
Creswell Junior School is a county co-educational junior school for children who are 7 to 11 years old. This year we have approximately 250 children on roll.
The school is housed in a beautiful century-old listed building, built in 1912. The school has a very unique octagonal hall, which we use for assemblies, PE, lunch and musical productions and two superb marching corridors that are home to 13 modern classrooms.
