Welcome to Horizons College. We are a community based specialist college offering educational opportunities for students over 16 years old with a wide range of special needs.
This academic year we welcome 72 learners at the college who will be supported by approximately 45 academic staff who are involved in teaching and learning activities. This means that classes are small and learners have the right level of support.
We aim to enable learners to reach their potential, making sure that every learner at the college is supported and enjoys their time with us.
Improving opportunities and outcomes for our students is at the heart of everything we do.
From first contact with the College we are constantly looking at what skills they would like to develop and how these impact on the lives they want to live. Young people develop and mature during their time at College and the dedicated team of support surrounding them offer opportunities that will improve their independence and confidence.
We are always happy to meet with parents and carers and offer the right guidance and support for them. We really hope you become part of our college family and look forward to working with you.
Please get in touch, or visit one of our Open Events to meet the teams, have a look at our facilities and ask any questions you may have.
Welcome to Horizons College,
I am privileged to be the Chair of Governors for this inspiring, innovative and exciting College provision for young adults with a learning disability and complex needs. Horizons College provides our learners with continuing educational, leisure and work/volunteering opportunities and our learners provide us with the inspiration to strive to continually evaluate, improve and develop so that we meet their needs as well as their aspirations.
The aim of the Local Governing Committee is to work with the staff in helping College learners achieve their full potential in a happy, caring and safe environment.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information, with praise, concerns or with any worries.
