Primary Partnerships


Helping primary children to excel

Hove Park School commitment to Primary Partnerships

Hove Park School has had a history of working with Primary schools throughout the local authority to help prepare students for the transition to secondary education. With recent changes to GCSEs and the abolition of course work in many subjects students need to be well equipped with the best possible skills to prosper in their chosen senior school. We offer a range of tasters in a number of key subjects for Primary schools, all delivered by our highly motivated and engaged peer tutors – students who have a specialism in a subject and are experienced in working with younger students to facilitate learning and understanding. We are very proud that our students are our best ambassadors!

What do we offer?

We offer a range of courses based on three main types of tasters. An initial hour long taster, a half or full day. Costs may be charged depending on the cover costs for staff and any travel or material costs.

How to work with us!

We offer initial taster sessions in the subjects listed below. Simply click on the icons to access further information. The onus is always on students working together with students to develop key learning skills and to develop confidence with topics and themes that form a key part of the KS3 curriculum. There are three options - a short taster, a longer half day and a full day. We have focused on very interactive elements of the curriculum as well as areas of the curriculum where Hove Park School students and staff have particular specialisms. We are of course delighted to offer bespoke sessions in collaboration with staff and students and please email with your particular request - jasandford@hovepark.org.uk

All our courses are underpinned by considerable expertise in digital technology. Staff and students will be delighted to show off the latest and best apps and areas of digital fluency in any session.
