Our Town

Inkersall is a friendly community on the edges of Staveley near Chesterfield. Traditionally a mining area, Staveley has a rich industrial history which includes the famous Ireland pit.


Together with our neighbouring city of Chesterfield, we are the gateway to the beautiful Peak District, and love our school surroundings, which is filled with farms and outdoor space.


Today, people know Chesterfield for the famous Crooked Spire on the church of St Mary and All Saints. The church is medieval, but we have more modern history around us too. The town sits on one of the largest coal seams in the country, and we had one of the first railway lines.

The Chesterfield Canal was built in 1777 and took canal traffic all the way to the River Trent. In recent years, miles of the canal has been restored and reopened. We are working on the last nine miles!


Growing up in Inkersall, our children have access to beautiful outdoor surroundings, a rich historic heritage and lots of opportunities to explore. At Inkersall Primary Academy, we learn about our place in the world, and to be proud of our town.
