At Horizon Academy we believe in developing well-rounded individuals ready to continue their journey into adulthood. This involves a firm focus on providing outstanding enrichment opportunities for all our students, developing new skills and interests and helping students nurture any existing talents.
As you would expect we have a strong programme of traditional activities with an extensive amount of opportunities in Sports, Music, Dance and Drama. We also run accredited national awards such as the Combined Cadet Force and the popular Duke of Edinburgh award. These programmes give our students the life skills and confidence to take charge of their lives and achieve their full potential at school and beyond, including in employment.
We are aware that all our students are unique. Whilst popular for many, traditional activities such as team sports are not for everybody. At Horizon we cater to all students with a huge variety of clubs from Martial Arts to our Forest Schools programme to promote confidence, self-esteem, and friendships. Our multi-million-pound building contains fantastic facilities from a hair and beauty salon to a fully equipped fitness suite.
Curriculum and Community
With Ormiston Academies Trust as our sponsor, we have extensive educational expertise at our fingertips. The Trust is committed to community involvement and extended learning, which gives our students the wider educational experience they need to be active and positive members of their communities.
Students will have access to clubs and trips to enhance the curriculum with a focus on STEAM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics). University partnerships and relationships with local business also enable us to offer outstanding insight into the future for our students.
