Hornchurch High School - formerly The Albany School

Hornchurch High School

Welcome to Hornchurch High School, a happy and successful community where every student is recognised as an individual and where we aim for all to reach their potential. We believe that every child has a talent and can experience success as they develop into young adults through the supportive and caring environment we provide.

The School is first and foremost a place of learning where students feel safe and enjoy their educational journey. Learning is at the centre of everything we do both in and out of the classroom and with so many opportunities at Hornchurch High School we feel your child will flourish here with us.

At Hornchurch High School we respect the traditional values of hard work, good manners, and self-discipline, whilst also preparing our students for their future lives in an ever changing world. We benefit from a dedicated and well qualified staff who bring 21st century learning alive for each individual.

So why seek a place for your child at Hornchurch High School? We pride ourselves on our family atmosphere, the fact that students feel safe and cared for and that, by surveying our pupils, we know that they continue to feel supported. As a parent, you are now faced with the very important decision as to which school is best for your child. While we strive to include in this Prospectus all the information you need, we strongly believe that you cannot find out if this school is right for your child simply from documentation or an Open Evening. There is only one way to fully experience and appreciate what our School has to offer and that is to visit during a normal school day. I therefore invite you to contact us to arrange a visit or to answer any further questions you may have.

Please do not hesitate to contact us regarding any aspect of transfer or admission. I look forward to working with you and your child over the coming years.
