At New Horizons we recognise that many of the young people find mainstream school overwhelming and no matter what behaviours or difficulties they present, we have a continuous positive regard, each day is a new day.

Following an agreement to a full time educational placement, we extend a warm welcome to all parents, carers and young people to an admission meeting. This enables the opportunity to meet with staff, look around the facilities and have any questions answered.

When young people arrive at New Horizons, the team run a series of diagnostic tests to build up a picture of why they have been struggling at school.  This enables the development of a Person Centered Plan for all young people, which will support their Individual Education Plan.

Taught lessons are in small groups that focus on individual learner needs.  There is strong emphasis on developing active learning and a variety of activities based within the classroom and wider community.  Our aim is to provide a wide range and variety of enrichment activities including sport, music and creative arts. This may include the commissioning of private and third sector organisations that are fully quality assured.

We offer all young people a healthy breakfast every morning; this supports our commitment to healthier lifestyle choices.

We are proud of our team and collaborative approach with parents and agencies; you will receive regular updates on your child’s personal, social and educational progress; based upon our mentoring and site specific target tracking processes to encourage, recognise and reward good attendance and behaviour.
