We encourage all of our pupils to take risks in their learning, to make mistakes and learn from them, both in lessons and in extra-curricular activities.

Each summer, all children in the Upper School go on a ‘school journey’ to a residential centre with their year group.  These journeys are an important part of the curriculum of Hornsby House and the children undertake a variety of new activities and team-building challenges, such as abseiling, raft building and orienteering.

Our enthusiastic staff lead by example and each subsequent journey is designed as a progression from the previous one in terms of distance away and activities involved.
