About Horizon Education

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

We specialise in providing education for children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN), and provide tailored support to help young people overcome challenges to help them learn.

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.

Our qualified, experienced and integrated Therapeutic Services team provide outstanding levels of support across Horizon to enable every young person to achieve social, emotional and academic success.

Our unique SHINE (Supporting Healing In Nurturing Environments) Therapeutic Model allows our Therapeutic Services team to practice using a psychologically informed, and trauma responsive approach to education. SHINE brings together up-to date research and approaches which have been found to be essential when supporting young people who have experienced trauma and adversity.

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, an evidence-based attachment-focused approach for working with young people incorporating Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy (PACE), underpins our SHINE model.
