Our Ethos

Welcome to our website. I hope you find it informative and that it gives you an insight into our school and the fantastic young people we serve.

James Hornsby School is a popular, oversubscribed school rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted where students’ and staff are highly committed and enjoy school life. Every member of our school is part of The James Hornsby family, and our motto is ‘Together We Excel’.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher at James Hornsby School. I accepted the headship at James Hornsby with great pride in the summer of 2019 and remain extremely excited about building on the success of the school in recent years.

Schools should be inspiring and provide the opportunities needed to achieve the very best outcomes. Every child deserves to receive a first class educational experience. We should place no limits on what young people can achieve and be committed to ensuring every student is ready and prepared to take up the challenges of the 21st Century.

Here at James Hornsby we are passionate about promoting and safeguarding and well-being of all. A secure and happy learning environment coupled with a strong, varied curriculum and excellent teaching will ensure our high expectations for students are met. We aim to achieve this through the work of our exceptional teachers and support staff, superb facilities and a non-negotiable approach to excellent behaviour.

We will be relentless and ambitious in our pursuit of excellence because we know the difference it can make to the lives of our young people, their families and the community.

I look forward to working in collaboration with you and hope this website gives you all the information you need.

Yours sincerely,
Mr D Steel
Headteacher
