Personal development at Horizon Community College extends the curriculum beyond the academic, technical and vocational providing our students with broader development of their interests and talents. We support learners in developing their character including their resilience, confidence and independence, ensuring they know how to stay physically and mentally healthy throughout. At every stage of our students’ journey, we provide an outstanding programme of careers and enterprise, preparing students for further education and next steps. In turn, students are prepared for life in modern Britain within all subject areas but additionally through an in-depth programme of citizenship and tutor period debate.
