Thank you for visiting our website - we hope you find the information you are looking for. Our school is very much the focal point of the village and caters for children aged from 3 to 9 years.
Children attend from many of the surrounding towns and villages. We are a Voluntary Aided Church of England First School and have close links with the church of St Nicholas in Great Hormead. The children go regularly to church and take part in services. Services are also held in the school.
Parents are invited to our Celebration Assembly Tomorrow, Friday 6th December, at 2.30pm. I'm delighted to report we have our first Bronze Reading Awards which will be presented to Freya, Sophie, Sienna, Jack, Indianna, Sam Maley, Ben and Alice. We'll also have our usual Star of the Week and Writer of the Week awards to present.
A big "Thank You" to everyone who supported our bookfair last Thursday and this week. We reached our target of £300 worth of sales, which means we will be able to choose £300 worth of books for the school.
A wonderful achievement for a little school!
Ardeley 4 V 2 Hormead.
Sadly an away defeat for Hormead. Ardeley started strongly, scoring a goal within the opening two miutes. However a goal from Sam Bull gave us a fighting chance and put Ardeley under a great deal of pressure. The rest of the first half certainly seemed to take place mostly in Ardeley's half! A hand ball in the penalty area gave Hormead a chance to take the lead which Freddie promptly took with a well struck penalty shot.
I'm delighted to inform parents that we have been awarded a grant of £9,950 from the lottery fund towards renewing our outdoor large play apparatus.
The grant will go towards removing the old tractor tyres on the field and replacing with a new tyre park, removing the chain link bridge and the climbing frame and replacing with a new climbing frame and a tunnel. The Friends have raised additional funds over the past year to support this work as well. We expect that this work will commence in the new year.
Parents may be interested to know that there are some new eSafety Parent Newsletters in our "Useful Downloads" section on our website. These contain useful advice and tips to promote esafety and the safe use of the internet. I hope parents find them useful and informative.
If you have a nursery aged child, or a child approaching nursery age and are looking at different settings, schools and nurseries then we'd be delighted to show you and you child around our school. Hormead offers a fantastic start to your child's education in a small, family orientated community. Just give us a call!

The Friends and Parents of Hormead School (FPHS) are a group of volunteers who help support their school in a multitude of ways. Working together to create a vibrant community of pupils, parents, staff and friends.
Each year they raise about £4,000. This goes towards purchasing resources, helping pay for coaches to and from events or subsidising trips. This year the friends have helped subsidise our trip to the panto, pay for a professional swimming coach, purchase outdoor toys and equipment as well as purchasing new maths and literacy resources.
