Ormiston Horizon Academy opened in September 2011 and became the 3rd most improved school in the country in 2012. In our academy we have a relentless aspiration to make a difference to the lives of our students.

Our belief is in a safe environment where everyone achieves, opportunities are provided for progression and growth, expectations are high and success for all is celebrated. We encourage ‘can do’ culture within a ‘family’ environment.

All young people at our academy are nurtured to develop every aspect of their personality, have genuine opportunities to reach their potential and are guided to enhance their intellectual, emotional, spiritual, creative and physical talents. Students are provided with opportunities to explore fully their personal ambitions as they prepare to move forward. The academy culture supports this by providing an environment where they can grow and develop as individuals.
