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: Philosophy lessons, a day of folk dance for the whole school, Shakespeare for Schools Festival, the refurbishment of the amphitheatre and much more!

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 2018.


We run many events throughout the year such as a Spooky Disco, a Winter Wonderland and a Summer BBQ, School Camping to name a few!


Events This Term

Sunday, 12th May - Three Peaks Challenge & the May Fair.  The 3 Peaks event is a sponsored walk that starts and finishes at the school and takes participants on a circular route around the local area. We encourage both children and adults alike to raise money for taking on this challenge -3.62 miles stroll that reaches the giddy heights of 600m (which according to the UK Government, is officially a mountain!). Each class has its own fundraising page - for Elder class, change the ending of the URL with your child's class name - e.g. 'ashclass1'. Anything donated through these pages can receive Gift Aid. It is £3 per person to attend both events (£2 for the walk and £1 for the May Fair). The 3 Peaks Challenge commences at 10.30am at the main school gates with the May Fair starting at 11.30am in the main playground at the school.  Thank you and look forward to seeing you at the event!
