Information about the school

Hornbeam Primary School is a delightful, inclusive school located on the outskirts of the seaside town of Deal. We are a one form entry school with a privately run nursery on site.

Our school motto is 'Learn to love learning to live life better'.

In July 2018 Ofsted judged the school to be good in every area. It has impressive facilities and grounds, a swimming pool, two playgrounds, a forest school area and a curriculum that fosters outdoor learning.

In April 2019 Hornbeam became a founding Academy member of the Deal Education Alliance for Learning Trust (DEALT) which is a newly formed MAT of seven local primary schools within Deal and the surrounding villages. This unique and exciting collaboration of local schools are working together to ensure the very best outcomes for all pupils and their families within our town.

Whilst your post will be at Hornbeam, your contract will be with DEALT.

In the local area there is a country park, the beach and a community that supports the school in any way it can.

We work in a very effective collaboration with other primary schools in the Deal Learning Alliance.

The staff and governors aim to provide the children with an education designed to help develop their life skills to the full. We provide a calm, caring, happy and positive atmosphere in which children fulfil their potential and grow in self confidence.
