Campbells Bay Primary School is located between Campbells Bay and Castor Bay on Auckland's North Shore. It is attended by children from the ages of 5 to 11; when they leave at the end of year 6, pupils usually move on to Takapuna Normal Intermediate School or Murrays Bay Intermediate School.

The school was opened in 1925 and had 16 students then; as of 2005, about 700 students attend the school. The principal is John McGowan and the deputy principal is Rachael Aitken.

Among the school's facilities are a hall, library and dedicated rooms for art, technology and music. There are 29 classrooms and in 2012 25 of them are used for teaching. Outside are three adventure playgrounds, a swimming pool and large sports field; the grounds include a large area of regenerating native bush known as the Community Forest.
