Welcome to Wykeham Primary School

Welcome to these pages provided by Wykeham Primary School, Hornchurch, Essex. We hope they will give you a flavour of life in our school, about our place in the community and some essential information for parents.

Wykeham Primary School is situated within the London Borough of Havering, between Romford and Hornchurch, near Roneo Corner. We have about 370 children in the Junior building and about 280 children in the Infant building.

About us

Wykeham Badge Wykeham Primary School is a County School. That means it is funded solely through the Local Education Authority - in our case, the OffsiteLondon Borough of Havering.

Our aims are to create a happy, secure and stimulating learning environment in which all members of the school community can grow in self-esteem and develop their potential as human beings.

We believe that every one of our children is special and that they should:

  1. have equal access to the education we provide.
  2. be treated courteously, firmly and fairly.
  3. respect our school rules, which are there for their safety.


The Junior Department is in a two storey building with two entrances and staircases. One entrance is accessible by ramp. Although the ground floor houses offices, classrooms and cloakrooms, allowing access by wheelchair, there are no specific toilets for the disabled. It should be noted also that corridors are quite narrow, housing work bays and could be restrictive.

Infant Department is in a single storey wooden construction with a two-step entrance. There are ramp facilities at the main entrance which allow access by wheelchair. There are no specific toilets for the disabled. It should be noted also that the corridors are quite narrow, housing work bays and could be restrictive.

During September 1998, the OffsiteLondon Borough of Havering announced that acting on a request from our governors, it was consulting the community about amalgamation of the Infant and Junior schools into a single Primary school. At its 17 March meeting, the Children and Life Long Learning Committee of the London Borough of Havering approved the application to amalgamate our two schools, following a period where no objections were received. The schools joined to form Wykeham Primary School on 1 September 1999.

Your children are eligible to join us in an Autumn Term (September to December), provided they have reached age 4 by that September. We operate a three full years policy of Infant education. Normally, admissions are staggered over the first few weeks of the term to settle our new joiners into our 3 Reception classes. You really need to begin thinking about where you wish to place your children shortly after the January of the year in which they'll start.

We believe that every one of children is special and that:

  1. ththey should have equal access to the education we provide.
  2. they should be treated courteously, firmly and fairly.
  3. they should respect our school rules, which are there for their safety.

Please contact the school in good time, to complete an application form and make an appointment to look around.

Who we are

The Friends of Wykeham is headed by a Committee of some 6-8 hardworking people who organise and co-ordinate the fundraising and social events throughout the year. Regular meetings are held, to which anyone is invited.

Why we're here

Over the years, schools have come to rely more and more on extra financial support and this is where the invaluable parents' associations usually fit in. Wykeham Infant and Junior Schools are fortunate to have a very active parents association called The Friends of Wykeham who have become an integral part of both schools.

Every parent who has a child, or children, in either school automatically becomes a member and many aunts, uncles, grandparents etc. also get involved.

What we do

For many years, we have raised funds for the schools and provided countless extras as well as many necessities.
  • Building and decorating work in the Junior School. The fiction and non-fiction libraries, were completed almost entirely with FoW funds.
  • The Infant library was also boosted with money from FoW. Contributions continue to go into these areas to keep the libraries up-to-date.
  • Listening centres have been purchased for both schools to help with classroom activities and also for reading groups.
  • Money has also been raised to improve provision of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) facilities in both buildings.
  • We provided funding for the materials to build the Reception area planters.
New curtains in the Infant Hall, £4000 towards the provision of extra security systems, special educational needs equipment, PE equipment, musical instruments, ICT software, sand and water trays - these are but a few worth mentioning. The list is endless. The latest purchase is a PA system to be used by both schools and the Friends of Wykeham at assemblies, meetings and functions etc. but also ultimately for use in the classrooms.

How we do it

In order to fund all of the above and more, the Friends organise Christmas Bazaars, Summer Fairs, Quiz Nights, Discos, Boot Fairs, to name but a few. They have also run successful Balloon Races, Easter raffles and so on. Not only do these events raise large sums of money (on average around £5000 each year in recent years) but they are also great fun and enjoyed by the children, parents and staff.

A schedule of events we are organising can be found here.

What else we do

However, the Friends of Wykeham are not only there for the fundraising.
  • we hold coffee mornings for the adults to get together
  • we arrange the Leavers Discos at the end of the Summer Term for the children of Years 2 and 6, and throughout the Year for the other Junior Year groups at which the children have a fabulous time
  • every Christmas the FoW distribute presents to each child in the school.
  • Mothers and Fathers Day stalls are eagerly awaited each year by the children and hopefully by the parents!
Last, but certainly not least, the Friends provide refreshments at many functions throughout the school year such as meetings, assemblies, sports days, parent gatherings etc. We are, as our name suggests, Friends of the school in every sense. The Committee members are well known by the staff, parents and the children. In fact, many of the children help out at events.

This is just a small example of the contribution of the Friends of Wykeham to the school. We feel that a strong link between the school and parents is vital for the education and well-being of the children and here at Wykeham, the Friends have helped, and continue to help, develop that relationship into a successful and lasting one.
