Page updated 20/07/2022

At Hornsey School for Girls we want to ensure that your daughter's move from primary to secondary school is as smooth as possible. There is a dedicated email for your queries as you begin the journey into secondary school.  

We will be updating this page for you as a way of communicating with you in addition to other communications. 

We are a committed 'tweeting school' and encourage all our families to join twitter to keep abreast of the things we do (@HornseySchool). When this page/ information is updated it will be tweeted there with a link. 

You may also find the following short video helpful to know how to support your daughter during this time. It is sure to start conversations about the emotions your daughter may be feeling.
