Dryaw School has made numerous appearances since the fifth series. Occasionally, pupils have been known to be taken by train to school, so it has a small platform that leads to a school yard.
One time, the playground was closed due to dirty sand, upsetting the children. After Gordon crashed into a closed tunnel under repair, they used the sand from the accident and the playground was reopened.
Gordon once had a nightmare in the 2005 special, Calling All Engines! that he was turned into part of the playground at the school.
Diesel once had to take slate to the school after a storm blew them off the roof.
- In Thomas and the Rumours and Percy and the Funfair, the school had several tracks passing it. However, there is only one in all other appearances.
