Welcome to the
Welcome to Horizon Campus - 'No Limits'!
Our new ‘Horizon’ campus caters for students from 16 – 25 years. We want to prepare our students for the exciting possibilities that are on their horizon as they leave education!
We aim to provide students with a hub of work experience, internships and placements and do so through our broad and balanced curriculum that includes taster days at college, as well as opportunities that encourage creativity and independence. Supporting students to scope out their future pathways in a clear and direct way means they will be able to take their place in society and make an active and meaningful contribution, knowing that they are valued for ‘who they are’ not just what they can do.
We continue to work closely with parents, providing training sessions and workshops, to ensure that every child feels fully supported in their journey in striving for success in the workplace.
Key Stage 4 and Post 16
Across both Learning for Life Campus and Horizon Campus, Key Stage 4 and Post 16 students access a functional curriculum that supports them to utilise the skills that they have acquired throughout their school progression and apply them in real-life situations. The focus is on practical application to deepen the significance and understanding of utilising knowledge and skills.
They are encouraged to use decision-making skills based on knowledge, personal experience and individual preference, while learning to recognise the impact of decision-making on self and others. We continue to offer a personalised, enriching and individual curriculum for each student, very much focusing on skills for life and preparation for adulthood.
Our core curriculum offer includes maths, English, PSHE, life skills and PE with communication underpinning everything we do to ensure all our students are the best communicators they can be. Students will access these subjects through different pathways depending upon their individual needs.
Students have the opportunity to try taster sessions of the foundation subjects on offer and are supported to choose their own options. These vary from year to year and we encourage students to suggest subjects and be involved in the planning of their learning. For students that are able to access appropriate Edexcel and/or BTEC qualifications in certain subjects, the units of work taught are taken from the functional skills and entry pathways. Students may be entered for external moderation and accreditation if appropriate.
Pupils may also have opportunities to undertake work-related learning and where appropriate, work experience placements. Along with Enfield Careers, we support and prepare our year 11 students to make their own choices regarding their post-16 journeys.
