Vision and Values

Horizon was founded by three strong primary schools, Biggin Hill, Cleeve and Spring Cottage, with the aim of developing a vision and strategic plan for Primary Education in Hull and East Yorkshire.

Horizon is exclusively a Primary Multi-Academy trust and therefore our focus will always be on the education of pupils from 3-11. Primary education underpins the success of a community and this has been a key driver in the development of Horizon.

Horizon recognises that every school is unique and serves their own unique community, therefore there cannot be a one size fits all model to continue to develop successful schools. Each school within Horizon maintains their own sense of identity as we believe they understand how to best serve their community.

The vision of Horizon is to improve outcomes for young people within our unique location that covers coastal, rural and urban schools. Horizon has a relentless focus on breaking the link between context and attainment through a no excuses ethos, high levels of collaboration and challenge and a commitment to providing a quality school experience for every child.

We believe that in every academy within the trust outstanding practice exists, which will be utilised fully to underpin continued success and sustainability.

We are also developing services which will remove some of the burdens for school leaders provided by our Services team which already includes: Finance, HR, Estates and Facilities, Cleaning and Catering.

By working together collaboratively we are not only able to increase the opportunities we can offer our own students and staff, but we are also able to offer specialist knowledge and skills across the curriculum to support teaching and learning. Horizon was established in May 2017 with a commitment to supporting Primary Education in our region.
