The school is based on two sites, one primary and one secondary. Primary-aged pupils are taught in mixed year groups, with other pupils who attend the pupil referral unit.

All students who attend NHLC have an EHCP related to their areas of need.  

Our most recent Ofsted report is below. We are really proud of the outcome and would like to thank staff, parents, carers, governors and students – as you are all part of the success that is New Horizons Learning Centre.

Quotes taken from the report:

“Pupils make good progress and achieve well in a wide range of subjects as they pass through the school. They are well prepared for the next steps of their education or work.”

“Teaching is consistently good. High expectations of achievement and behaviour, relevant activities, teachers’ good knowledge of their subjects and the effective deployment of teaching assistants help ensure pupils do well.”

“The very large majority of pupils’ behaviour is good in lessons and around school, and this assists their good progress. Pupils are proud of the school and place great trust in the staff. Pupils feel safe and value staff help and support.”

“The school’s outstanding leadership and management include strong governance and very effective systems for improving performance. Consequently, since the previous inspection, pupils’ achievement, the quality of teaching, safety and behaviour have improved from ‘requiring improvement’ to ‘good’. Attendance has markedly increased.”

“Engaging lessons ensure that learning and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are effectively encouraged.”

“Well informed governors hold the school to account diligently and thoroughly evaluate their own performance.”
