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 nurseries, '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
Mrs Sarah Dawson
A group of our Year 5 children (together, with children from St Matthew’s and St Stephen’s C of E, from the 'MyBD5' cluster) are acting, playing music and working with the technical team for performances of sections of Much Ado About Nothing originally by William Shakespeare . The children, from years five and six, have been studying parts of the plays in the classroom. The aim of the National Shakespeare School Festival is to raise levels of spoken English and encourage creative writing. The Alhambra is one of a number of theatres around the country working with organisers of the UK’s largest youth drama festival as well as confidence and teamwork. They have been preparing for the festival since September and are re-telling sections of the play. They are being coached by Luke Broughton, actor in residence for the MyBD5 schools, who said the project has opened up the world of Shakespeare, “making something inaccessible accessible." The performances will also form part of the two-week long MyBD5 Literacy Festival to be held in January, involving all the primary schools in the cluster.
