We are a popular, two-form entry community school, with excellent facilities, located at the heart of the Canterbury estate in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
We have twelve age group based classes, for learners aged between four and eleven. Our learners are motivated and enthusiastic, they concentrate and achieve well by taking responsibility for themselves, their learning and their environment. Our staff team work hard to ensure that all children make rapid progress.
Every individual child is important to us.
We are a school with big ambitions:
We have a newly opened 'state of the art' Learning Resource Centre where children and parents can share and borrow books and learning materials together. We are also currently working to develop our extensive outdoor facilities, which will also be shared with the community.
We meet the needs of our local children and their families through the school, our links with local nursuries, 'MyBD5' primary and local secondary schools, community facilities, Multi-Use Games Area and extensive grounds.
Our school community has the ambition and drive to improve and has been judged as very effective by OfSTED.
We work together to provide every child with a brilliant start to their school life.
Our dedicated and hard-working staff are very proud of Horton Park and the community we work with.
We welcome visitors – Please contact us by e-mail or telephone

Our new Library was officially opened, by several of our sponsors, on 14th February 2014. As a result of our exciting launch event the local poet and fellow of the Royal Society, John Siddique, is exploring a longer term connection with our school and the National Literacy Trust is involving us in a number of projects. These projects will give our children even better access to books and ensure they are able to read widely in order to foster their love of learning, progress in English and their general knowledge.
We have been successful in our bid to secure funding from Greggs and we are delighted to offer the first 40 children who attend breakfast club free breakfast every day. Items on offer are Toast, Juice, Cereal and Breakfast Cereal Bars. Breakfast club starts at 8am - 8.45am. Children who attend after this will be charged normal rate of 10p per item
