Horringer Court School is an inclusive school which aims to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment for pupils of all backgrounds and abilities. ​

This is achieved through:

  • respect for individual differences;
  • encouragement of creativity;
  • providing challenge for all abilities. ​

We place great emphasis on reading and expect each child to read for at least 10 minutes every night. We also have timetabled reading time on Fridays. The school's Library is available for children to choose books at break and lunchtimes.

An emphasis is put on collective engagement with spiritual and moral aspects of life through two whole school assemblies each week, one year group assembly and one class group assembly. Our links with Christian organisations are often emphasised at these times with representatives from local Christian groups leading the assemblies. At other times the pupils are challenged to think about their roles as thinking and supportive members of their community at a school, local, national and global level. This is often a time too for pupils to consider how they can affect change for the better in their world and take an active part in local, national and global charities.

Pupils are also challenged to think about how their own personal skills and ambitions can be developed effectively as citizens. Time is given to small group thinking and planning for their own development as workers at school and beyond.

Homework is an integral part of the curriculum and a homework timetable outlining expectations and an increasing time commitment to this is sent to parents at the beginning of each school year.
