Teaching, Learning and Assessment

We create a climate for learning in which pupils thrive as confident, successful and happy individuals who develop a lifelong love of learning. We are passionate professionals and it is our mission to ensure pupils are fully equipped with the personal attributes, skills, knowledge and understanding needed to be highly successful throughout their school lives and beyond. 

At the Horizons Learning Federation we define learning as:

  • engaging in meaningful and purposeful experiences which allow us to acquire and apply new skills, concepts and knowledge
  • the refinement of existing concepts, knowledge, skills, attributes and behaviours through experience and shared communications
  • exploring and taking risks in a safe and nurturing environment
  • being inspired to achieve aspirational targets and fostering a ‘can do’ attitude to overcome challenge
  • empowering individuals to become confident, independent learners with transferable skills who will thrive in a challenging modern world
  • creating a culture of self-evaluation, practice and reflection
  • limitless and accessible to all
