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 5pm to 10pm) and weekends (from 8am to 5pm, Saturday and 8am to 3:30pm, Sunday) during term-time.

In the school holidays we are open for weekday lettings from 8am to 6pm along with some weekday evenings and weekends (subject to discussion).

Please note that bookings are subject to the demands of our academic calendar.


A large sports hall with marked out lines for a multitude of ball sports.


Our indoor gymnasium/dance studio has a sprung floor and is available to hire all year round. The gym can accommodate 200 people. Mobile speakers are also available on request. Please note that soft shoes must be worn and the gym is unsuitable for ball games.


Our tennis courts are available to hire from mid April until the end of August. The courts are on a tarmac base and can accommodate 4 matches at the same time.


Our sports fields are available to hire. We can offer grass playing fields for matches, a 400m grass running track and a cricket wicket.


Horsforth School has two drama studios available to hire. These studios are perfect for drama groups or groups looking for a calm and tranquil setting.


Our main indoor hall is available to hire all year round and can accommodate a maximum of 300 people. Seating can be arranged as required or cleared so that full use can be made of the floor space. The hall has a stage, making it suitable for large-scale drama and theatre productions. Equipment includes a PA system and lighting.


Our library can accommodate 100 people. Seating can be arranged around tables or in rows.


The school has over 50 classrooms available for hire. Each classroom can accommodate up to 32 people.


Three music rooms are available for hire which have been designed with consideration to the acoustics of the room. We are also able to offer keyboards and other instruments for hire.


There are seven computer suites available to hire at Horsforth School. The rooms are of varying sizes with the largest able to accommodate 50 people. These rooms would be ideal for training events, classes or scout/guide groups.


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.
