Welcome From The Headteacher

Karen Thomson

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.

NHAP vs The Bridge

Our first fixture of the season! A few huffs and puffs and red faces but our pupils were a credit to New Horizons and their behaviour was outstanding!! Well done guys:-


Sport Leaders

Take a look at our fantastic key stage 3 and 4 students working with our primary unit. Below you can see them delivering a boxing and hockey session as well as teaching some pool. This is a fantastic way to develop their leadership and communication skills.




Macmillan Coffee Morning

A huge thank you to everyone that took part in our Macmillan Coffee morning on Friday. We raised a grand total of  £53.54.
Also, a special thank you to Sue Martin and our KS4 Duke of Edinburgh pupils for baking and selling those amazing cakes.

Dallaglio Rugby Works

Thank you very much to Rory and Ali from Dallaglio RugbyWorks for their fantastic Rugby session this afternoon.

Dallaglio RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which we aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.



Sensory Garden

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet yeah!

With the weather now warming up, take a look at our KS3 + 4 pupils taking ownership of the sensory garden helping to paint the fences and planting new vegetables:-



A massive congratulations to our Cedar unit for completing their exams. Now it’s that time of year again where they can finally relax and have a glamorous send off with their very own prom.

Splashing around Pennington Flash

Another fantastic sailing trip out to Pennington Flash thanks to Salford Sailing Group. This time it was KS3 who had the chance to put on their wet suits and buoyancy aids and learn how to paddle and sail. See photo’s below:-
