Barnby Dun has had elementary education since around 1872. The old school, as it is known now, with one classroom was paid for originally from local charities and the church fund. The property lies on Top Road, Barnby Dun. The first headteacher of the new school was Charles Newbound 1872-1895. During the last century extensions and additions to the school were made. As the village grew, so did the school but in 1977 a new infant school was built on Church Road and the original school became a junior school educating 7- to 12-year-old boys and girls. Due to a falling population it was decided that both schools be amalgamated and the infant school site was chosen as the new Primary school. Kirk Sandall has an infant and junior school which range from the ages of 4 to 11.
