Welcome to our Website. Our aim at New Horizons AP School is to create a safe and happy environment for our children to learn. We are committed to and passionate about supporting and working with some of the most vulnerable, disadvantaged and disengaged learners across KS1 – KS4. We operate an inclusive school where every child is valued and we work hard to help our children develop their skills, knowledge and positive attitudes in order to help them to become responsible, respectful and tolerant citizens of the future.

At New Horizons AP School we have a strong team of dedicated and supportive staff who work very hard to provide the best opportunities for all our pupils. We value and appreciate the positive support of our parents and of the wider community and strive for an open and welcoming environment where we can work in partnership for the benefit of our pupils.
