Through education, we enable young people to gain the skills and resilience needed to succeed in life beyond school, inspiring the brightest futures.

Our specialist independent schools offer unrivalled opportunities, securing sound educational outcomes with personalised, inclusive, and stimulating programmes of learning.

We provide education and support to children and young people who have complex special educational needs and require their SEN provision to be delivered in a specialist setting.

To meet the needs of our children and young people with complex SEN, our schools specialise in communication and interaction, cognition, learning, physical and/or sensory difficulties and social, emotional, and mental health difficulties.

The Horizon school that your child or young person attends depends on their age, location and SEN provision described in their Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

Our integrated Education Therapy Lead, and the wider Therapeutic Services team, support Education Colleagues to meet the therapeutic needs defined in a young person’s Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). EHCP requirements are detailed in each school’s individual provision map which is reviewed at every Education Therapy Review (ETR).

Purposeful Learning

We make learning relevant to our young people, ensuring that they develop and progress in the core subjects, alongside the wider curriculum.

Our approach to implementing the curriculum helps to support our young people to become positive and responsible individuals who can work and cooperate with others in any situation they may find themselves in beyond their life at school.

We plan each young person’s education carefully and cohesively, shaping their provision around their EHCP and agreed developmental goals.

As a result, young people develop their knowledge and expand on their skills both now and for the future.
