Welcome to Horley Infant School
We wish you a warm welcome with this first taste of life at Horley Infant School. As you will see, we are committed to children achieving their potential and believe this is gained through outstanding teaching, high expectations of behaviour and an environment where they feel happy, safe, valued and respected.
Horley Infant School is well respected throughout the local community. It is known for its happy atmosphere and stimulating curriculum, promoting the desire to question and investigate.
The partnership between parents, carers and school is vital during these early years of education and this relationship is nurtured through many school activities. In support of the changing needs of families we have established an Extended School with a:
Breakfast Club – 7.30 – 8.50am – Sunrise Club
After School Club – 3 – 6pm – Sunset Club
Many other clubs are available too; these include art, cooking, bookworm, gardening, Lego and construction, dance, football training with Chelsea Football Club, sewing, board games, and gymnastics with Ellastics, which run from 3 – 4pm.
Children 2½ – 4 years old are welcomed to our on-site Bobtails Pre-School which runs morning and afternoon sessions.
This website aims to keep you up to date with school life; please visit regularly for news and photos of activities and events. You can also access newsletters, year group plans, pupil administrative forms, minutes of Full Governors’ and Friends’ meetings.

About Horley Infant School
Horley Infant School has a rich history dating back to 1864. Since then it has been adapted to provide ten modern, well equipped classrooms, each possessing an extensive range of resources to facilitate and extend the children’s learning.
These include interactive whiteboards, visualisers, laptops and tablets with software designed for each year group to access. Each classroom also has a book corner and an art area.
The school also has a separate room for small group work and a large entrance hall containing a well stocked central library. The school also benefits from a recently extended hall equipped with climbing apparatus.
The school is situated on a spacious site with a large playground to the rear. Also to the rear of school is a playing field, an all weather field and a very popular Adventure Trail. For those preferring some quiet spaces there is a pond, a gazebo and other shaded areas for children to enjoy.
We have vegetable plots which enable children to enjoy and learn from growing their own produce. Adjacent to this area is our newly constructed Forest Schools area which is used by our children in Year One to develop a variety of skills whilst learning with our Forest Schools teacher, Mrs. Gadd.
Reception and Year One children have access to a supervised outdoor classroom which borders the classrooms to the front, side and rear of the school. We are very lucky to have an Outstanding on-site nursery called ‘Bobtails’ which is in the purpose built lodge known as ‘The Warren’. It has a safe, designated play area but they also make use of our wider school grounds including the field, astro-turf, pond and wildlife area and Forest School.
