Horniman Primary School PTA

The Parent Teacher Association exists to promote positive relationships between staff, parents and the school community. It aims to support the school by raising money for additional facilities that do not come from government funding. Recently funded or contributed toward by PTA funds were: water coolers, sports kits for away fixtures, coaches for school trips, resurfacing of the pen, a new maypole for the school, a day of folk dance for the whole school, Shakespeare for Schools Festival

Every Horniman parent/carer is automatically a member of the PTA; everyone is welcome. The current PTA committee was elected at the AGM in April 2016.


We run many events throughout the year such as a Belgian Beer evening, a Ceilidh, a May Fair, a Summer BBQ, School Camping to name a few!
