Primary school Partnerships
The James Hornsby School works closely with 9 primaries across Laindon:
Great Berry, Janet Duke, Laindon Park, Lee Chapel, Lincewood, Merrylands, Millhouse, Noak Bridge and Phoenix.
The purpose is to work closely and support each other to ensure high quality education and opportunities for the students in the community. It has allowed collaboration and joint opportunities for learning, achievement and success.
The annual Maths Challenge promotes higher order thinking across each of the school’s best mathematicians challenging each to solve complicated mathematical problems.
The Gifted and Talented Science days allow the students to be top grade scientists for the day, solving scientific problems, conducting experiments and evaluating their findings.
The joint work has resulted in projects such as Laindon Schools’ United whereby the head boy and girl of each of the involved schools form termly projects and challenges to develop and support learning to the highest standards.
The school offers continuous opportunities for students in year 5 and 6 to attend a multitude of taster events and promotion of the Children’s University.
James Hornsby Sports Partnership
The James Hornsby Sports Partnership works with 32 primary schools across Basildon as part of the Youth Sports Trust School Games. With a multitude of competitions delivered across the partnership, students develop skills in new sports and a life- long love of sport.
The Partnership delivers approximately 30 competitions over the year, alongside Gifted and Talented days, development days and a range of other opportunities that schools can access to develop and promote PE and school sport. Beyond this, we also organise and host the annual primary District Athletics sports competition.
