We desire for children to be curious about the world around them and ask questions.


We have adopted an enquiry based learning approach. Teachers act as facilitators to help children answer questions and discover things for themselves.


All classes from Year 2 to Year 6 have a half term of weekly Philosophy sessions led by Peter Worsley, an internationally renowned educator in this field. Peter works with teachers to link his input to the curriculum being covered at that time and teacher use enquiry based methods across the curriculum.

Horniman Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
