- About Our School
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.
This year we have used our sports premium to fund membership of the school sports partnership, update equipment and subsidise school swimming lessons.
Membership of the school sports partnership enables us to access regular update meetings, professional development training, coaching sessions (in school, for pupils), and participation in interschool competitions and festivals.
I was delighted to play host to our local MP, Mr Oliver Heald, who visited Saturday morning to investigate the work of the Young People, who as part of the National Citizenship Programme, worked on improving our school garden. Mr Heald was impressed by the efforts of the volunteers and said how he looked forward to seeing the work completed in the spring.

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.
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!
Leapfrogs Pre-School is a separate charitable foundation which is situated within the grounds of Hormead Primary School.
Their belief is that, enjoyable play is essential to children, as this is the medium through which they learn and develop.
* To provide a happy stimulating environment within a structural framework.
* To build confidence.
* To encourage independence.
* To develop language and communication skills.
* To understand the importance of good behaviour and good manners.
* To create habits of listening and concentration.
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.
