The Parish of Spofforth with Stockeld has a population of 1,200 living mainly within the village of Spofforth along and off the High Street, Castle Street and Harrogate Road, the busy Harrogate to Wetherby route. The newer developments of Massey Garth and White Horse Mews are off Harrogate Road and, more recently, a number of affordable housing developments became available on East Park Road off Park Road. Spofforth offers a wide range of excellent facilities which include a shop, two public houses, hairdressers, a village hall, cricket club, snooker club and a golf course to name a few.
Spofforth CE Primary School is located on School Lane. James Tripp, Rector of Spofforth, founded the school in 1847 and a stone plaque to commemorate his death in 1879 is located above one of the cloakroom doors. In the 1960s with the expansion of the village the schoolhouse was amalgamated into the main building and new classrooms were constructed. The school has seen many improvements with its facilities and grounds and is very well supported by both the PTA and other village based organisations.
