About Our School


Bubwith Community Primary School is situated in the centre of this long established village on the east bank of the River Derwent. The village name is probably derived from the Viking ‘Bubba’s Wood’. The school on Church Street was built in 1965. The previous school building is now a delicatessen / wine shop situated opposite the village shop. 

The school comprises a central hall with an administration block, kitchen, five classrooms, an ICT suite and a library. Two classrooms have recently been extended and further remodelling and extension work to the school has given us a purpose built ICT suite and library, a recent addition a few years ago.

The children benefit from a large sports field, a concrete netball court and a wildlife study area with pond. We also have a small school garden with raised beds for growing vegetables and there is an activity trail bought for the school by 'Friends of Bubwith School'.


The children on roll come from the village of Bubwith itself, and the many nearby villages and hamlets including Breighton, Foggathorpe, Laytham, Willitoft, Gribthorpe, Aughton, Ellerton and East Cottingwith.
