The 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.
