Here at Hordle Primary School we have so much admiration for our lovely volunteers we call our Grandhordles!

They give up and devote their time during the week to read and help the children with their schoolwork. Not only do we value their generosity but we also know how much the children love spending time with them all.

It is so brilliant to see the children connect with them and the respect shown is just amazing.

The Grandhordles Team is coordinated by our fabulous Mrs Ursell who has a wonderful rapport with all generations and really has done a great job keeping this tradition alive.

If you would be interested in joining our Grandhordle Team please come to the School office and collect a volunteer pack.

We hope to see you soon!

“The Grandhordles are really kind and lovely and if I get stuck on a word they always help me to work it out.”

“I love the Grandhordles! They are really nice and friendly and they like it when I read them stories.”
