COVID-19 adjustments currently in place

We will be following the relevant guidance released by the government regarding covid safety in readiness for September 2021

Our new year 7 will have use of the site for Friday and we hope that the time will support reduction in natural anxiety about return. Please note current government guidance does not recommend the use of masks in classrooms. Guidance may be amended and we will keep you informed if this is the case. 

We recognise that a new school and these restrictions are a significant change for all and we want to assure you that the safety of your daughter and our staff remain paramount at all times.

Uniform updates for new school term 

Uniform can be purchased from https://uniform-me.com/product-category/schools/hornsey-school-for-girls  Please note in the current climate the uniform suppliers are offering appointments only so you cannot just walk in. 

Students are always expected to arrive at school in full school uniform. We place a strong emphasis at Hornsey on our girls looking smart and ready to learn. Our policy for students arriving in incorrect uniform is to send them home to change. A signed & dated note should be provided if there is reason why this is not possible. We all take pride in Hornsey’s uniform we also need to ensure all students, from September are wearing:

  • School blazer
  • School jumper/pullover
  • White shirt
  • Black school skirt/trousers (pleated or A line skirt and no leggings or jeggings)
  • Plain black school shoes/ trainers*  (no heels or sandals)
  • Lanyard in year group colour (these will be given to new yr 7)
  • ID card
  • Black coat or jacket preferred over the school blazer

The parent induction booklet has a number of forms for completion. We are sharing these to give an idea of the information and will share a link for these to be completed online at a later stage. 

You may have received a reminder text about admissions booklets and free school meals - any queries please email to admin@hornseyschool.com  

Thank you! Please do get in touch if you need anything, 

 Keep safe and keep well.
