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 2015 GCSE results made us the top performing non-selective School in the City.
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.
