North and South Cowton Community Primary School
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (April 2014)|
The primary school building dates from the Victorian period, though it has been extensively renovated and extended.
Thankfully the school survived the threat of closure and in 2004 boasted more than 50 pupils. The main reason for this is the increase in the size of North Cowton, thanks to the construction of two new housing estates. Another reason is the schools acceptance of several children from outside the schools catchment area. Since then the opening of a new school at Middleton Tyas and a number of families moving out of the village have seen numbers fall.
