Village schools are Brayton High School, Brayton Juniors, and Brayton C of E Infants. The Infant School is one of the oldest buildings in the village. The school house was once home to the headmistress of Brayton school, and lessons were taken in a smaller building. The house is now a private residence, and the old school room is now a small part of the extended building.
Wesley Chapel and St Wilfrid's church are the two religious buildings. Wesley Chapel was founded by Charles Wesley, father of composer Samuel Wesley. It is now a nursery school and still a place of worship. The Grade I listed Church of England parish church, dedicated to St Wilfrid, dates from the 12th to the 15th centuries with 19th–century alterations and stained glass. Within the church is a tomb to Lord D'Arcy (died 1558), and his wife, it's effigies damaged during the 17th–century Interregnum.
