We are an independent state funded academy, which gives us great autonomy to manage our young people’s education. We have a duty to raise standards of achievement and attainment for all of our young people. Ormiston Horizon Academy opened in September 2011 and became the 3rd most improved school in the country in 2012.
The name Ormiston Horizon Academy reflects the meeting of two things; surface and sky, student and teacher, aspiration and attainment. It’s about a meeting of minds, which will create a trailblazing future. Horizon is also about breaking through the limits of understanding, experience or interest, going beyond to reach or look to the future and have vision.
