Horringer Court

Horringer Court LogoHorringer Court is a 9-13 school that forms part of the Bury St Edmunds All-Through School. At Horringer Court School we are proud of the quality of education we provide. We have very high expectations of everyone and provide a supportive environment in which pupils feel happy and secure. Pupils' personal development is also important to us as we aim to help them develop as responsible members of our community and citizens of the future. To this end we also provide very good opportunities for learning outside our school day.

Going All-Through
This is a time of great change in education nationally. While other schools locally prepare to move to a two-tier system, our schools have already reorganised into the forward looking All-Through system. As a result, all the schools in our Trust are able to focus solely on our core mission of helping every pupil to reach his or her potential by providing a seamless education from 4-19.

Any child in Year 4 who is not already in our system can choose to move into the All-Through Trust. Indeed, parents with children of all ages are very welcome to attend one of our open events and/or to have an individual tour. To find out what you need to do and how to get an application form visit the admissions page.

Horringer Court raises £7,145 for charitiesHorringer Court raises £7,145 for charities

The pupils of any school raising more than £7,000 should be proud of themselves, but it is doubly so for Horringer Court School because it was all their own work.

And they did it in less than three days at the Bury St Edmunds school and chose the charities to benefit.

They did not find out how much they had raised until head-teacher Tania Johnson announced it in the school’s Carol Service at St Mary’s Church today – £7,145.72 raised by just over 360 pupils.

 
Mrs Johnson said: “The staff just stand there and watch while they set everything up. They do the clearing up, too.

“They’ve got to have a stall that makes money so they learn about profit and budgeting. It’s impressive and each year it has raised more.

“Because the children choose they charities, there’s often a personal connection.”

So this year at the carol service, in front of a church packed with family members until there was standing room only, one house presented £1,895.47 to St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Nicky’s Way child bereavement charity. 

Another gave £2,288.95 to East Anglian Air Ambulance and the third donated £2961 to Suffolk Mind, the mental health charity.

Margaret Culpin, chair of the school governors, said after the presentation “I feel very proud of the children and their work.

“I’m very proud they have raised so much money for these charities.”

Horringer Court: Top 10 Schools in Bury St EdmundsHorringer Court: Top 10 Schools in Bury St Edmunds

Horringer Court is amongst the Top 10 middle and upper schools in Bury St Edmunds by a website that monitors the performance of schools over the past year.  All three Academy Trust schools eligible (Horringer Court, Westley and County Upper) feature in the top 10 list published by www.schoolsguide.co.uk.

Many parents in Bury St Edmunds are currently choosing schools for the children to start in September 2016

The website has rated all the middle and upper schools in town according to key performance data including exam results, Ofsted reports, ‘value added’ score and pupil to teacher ratio.

Parents are also able to write a review of their child’s school and compare against others locally with a maximum five star rating.

Space Seeds Adventure in the Science Department!Space Seeds Adventure in the Science Department!

We've teamed up with the UK Space Agency to turn our pupils into space biologists!

Our application to take part in ROCKET SCIENCE, a UK-wide experiment allowing schools to grow seeds that have been into space, has been successful.

The seeds (two kilograms of ROCKET SEEDS) are currently on board the International Space Station (ISS) and will stay there until March. You can track the ISS online here: http://spotthestation.nasa.gov/sightings/#.VgLAf8tVhBc and wave at them as it flies over the UK, or even our county!

Resource packs will be sent out next year after the Easter holidays (as long as they make it back!). We will receive one pack Rocket seeds that have been to space, one pack Rocket seeds that have remained on earth. 

The success of Rocket Science relies on us and other schools across the UK inputting data from the experiment into a national database to contribute to our knowledge or growing food in space.
