  • OFSTED visit: we’re GOOD!

    Horizon has received a glowing report from OFSTED, following a visit at the end of the summer term. The college was judged ‘Good’ in all categories. The report - a copy of which can be seen here – notes that, ‘Attainment has improved rapidly in all year groups since the College opened’, and that, ‘…students make good progress in mathematics and English’. In addition the report states that, ‘Progress in all other subjects shows an equally positive picture’. Proud Principal, Nick Bowen, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted with our OFSTED report and this year’s examination results. They both reflect accurately the huge success that Horizon Community College is having in raising achievement in this area and the positive impact it is having on the local community. The very good report and examination results gives us the perfect platform to push on to be outstanding and to really ensure a bright future for our young people and for the community of Barnsley’.
