Hornsey School for Girls, located at Inderwick Road, N8 9JF, is the sole all-girls secondary school in the borough of Haringey, serving the Hornsey/Crouch End area in North London. It began in 1887 as a grammar school and has evolved through the years to become a comprehensive community school. The school offers a vibrant learning environment with high academic and pastoral standards.

Hornsey School for Girls is known for its historical roots and has undergone several reconstructions, with the latest premises completed in 1971. However, in 2023, the school discovered structural issues, prompting remedial works.

The school is divided into six House teams: Franklin, Okeeffe, Seacole, Curie, Shelley, and Hypatia, each representing a significant figure from history or science, and these color-coded teams foster friendly competition and a sense of community.

Hornsey School for Girls has celebrated successful outcomes in academic performance and has produced notable alumni, such as journalist Zeinab Badawi, medical photographer Julie Dorrington, and actress Dilys Laye. The school is passionate about the development of its students, preparing them to be critical thinkers and productive members of society.
