What The Good Schools Guide says..
All is brought together by the school community’s positive, can-do attitude, and the house system which sees children of all ages working together on different projects. In the final year pupils work towards the leaver’s qualification the Hornsby House Certificate. This involves achievements including taking on leadership roles, displaying resilience during the year 6 trip to a Scottish activity centre, taking part in a charity event and speaking confidently in public: an ideal finale to the junior school years.
What the school says...
Hornsby House is a co-educational independent day school for 4-11 year olds between Balham and Wandsworth Common. There are three classes in each year group and entry at Reception is non-selective. The school is warm, nurturing and inclusive, yet there is real academic rigour, driven by the talented and committed teaching staff. Pupils also enjoy an extensive and creative co-curricular programme, with over fifty clubs on offer during the week, and the school has recently been awarded Artsmark Gold.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate judged Hornsby House pupils overall achievement as excellent and found that pupils achieve high academic standards within a wide and creative curriculum. Pupils personal development was described as excellent and a strength of the school.
Most pupils go on to London day schools at age 11 and achieve an impressive number of scholarships. An open morning is held each term and prospective parents are welcome to attend this or to arrange an individual visit. Hornsby House is a charitable trust and is a member of IAPS (The Independent Association of Prep Schools). ...Read more
