Welcome to the Year 7 page, where you will find useful information regarding your child’s journey through their first year at Horizon Community College.
Year 7 students study a broad and balanced curriculum; it builds on the knowledge and skills that your child will have studied in KS2. Each subject allows them to experience new skills and develop a further love for learning, and we aim that each subject’s curriculum challenges every learner, in every lesson, every day.
We have high expectations of all our community, and we embed the college core values in everything we do, in and outside of the classroom. Through the college’s core values, we develop the character and skill set of each individual student, helping them to demonstrate pride, kindness, tolerance, teamwork, respect, engagement, questioning, independence, organisation and resilience in everything they do, enabling each student to become positive role models who are fully prepared for a lifetime of success.
We are very fortunate at Horizon to have a Careers and Enterprise team who work tirelessly to ensure our students are not only school ready, but also work ready and life ready. From the moment our students enter Horizon in Year 7, they are engaged in activities linked to their interests, strengths, weaknesses and the world around them, ensuring there are opportunities for all.
At Horizon, we want our students to be self-aware, confident about their skills, equipped with the best academic qualifications they can achieve and truly excited about what lies ahead of them, and this all starts in Year 7, where we strive to ensure that every student is School ready; Work ready; Life ready.
