New Horizons Academy provides young people with alternative and special education in order for them to progress and succeed in sustained education or employment. We do this through high quality teaching and learning based on effective relationships that enable the achievement of life skills and meaningful qualifications.
We believe all children and young people have the capacity to learn regardless of their life situation. It is our role to unlock that learning potential. We apply our methodology to open the door to learning and to re-engage excluded or marginalised young people, whose attainment has fallen behind their peers in mainstream education.
We have high aspirations for our learners and aim to:
- close the attainment gap of our cohort compared to their peers
- help them return to a mainstream school if this is in the best interests of the child
- be kind to yourself, to others and the environment
- work hard
- do your best
