Horsforth School has a wide range of facilities that are available to hire for all types of events. The school is conveniently located in North Leeds and has ample on-site parking. An on-site supervisor is available at all times for the duration of the letting to assist with any queries.

Our facilities are available for hire during the weekday evenings (from 6pm to 10pm) and weekends (from 8am to 5pm). This is with the exception of the Christmas school holidays.

For enquiries to hire our school facilities outside of these hours, please get in touch.

Large commercial kitchen with Frima ovens.


This covered, outdoor courtyard area would be perfect for a children’s party and includes several picnic style seating benches. We can also offer use of a kitchen area which can be used to keep food (such as pizzas) warm or to prepare a finger buffet. If the party includes entertainment (e.g. children’s entertainer/magician) then a drama studio for example could be used prior to eating in the Courtyard. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

This area would also be perfect for any organisations organising a summer school and who would like to make use of our outdoor facilities.
