The School

A local School with a global outlook 

Our high standards of teaching, our broad and balanced academic curriculum and our extensive learning opportunities inspire every young woman to raise her expectations and to be ambitious in exceeding her potential.

We foster a passion for learning from the moment students start school to the moment they leave. Our curriculum enables every student to acquire the knowledge, skills and personal qualities needed to open doors to life-long opportunities and to progress to both University and work beyond.

Younger students follow a core curriculum of English, Maths, Science, Humanities subjects (taught as discrete subjects), Languages, Design Technology, Sport and P.E and Arts, including Performing Arts (taught discretely). Our intensive Accelerated Reading and Literacy Programme ensures that all girls, no matter what their ability, develop a love of literature from the beginning of their academic journey at Hornsey.

All students study core and foundation subjects at GCSE. We have high expectations of our students and ensure intellectual and academic rigour at every level. Our results since 2015 have been above national expectations and we are one of the top performing schools in the borough consistently.
