Welcome

Message FRom OUR PRINCIPAL

At Horizon our vision is to develop students who are ‘School ready; Work ready; Life ready’.

The economic, cultural and social landscape of Barnsley is changing.  Opportunities in further education, higher education and professional roles are increasing; opportunities for individuals to shape their own career pathways are growing; opportunities for individuals to challenge traditional socio-economic patterns are multiplying.

At Horizon Community College, our responsibility is to prepare students for this reality.  We want young people to leave the College well qualified and with a unique skill set that will enable them to stand out from the crowd.  We want young people to be in possession of a passport of qualifications and employability skills that will enable them to pursue exciting careers, attend prestigious universities, complete dynamic apprenticeships and play leading roles in regenerating this area and beyond.
