Admission Statement & Policy - Horizons Specialist Academy Trust

Horizons Specialist Academy Trust is a specialist multi-academy trust with four academies and a sixth form attached to one of the academies.  These five academies and a sixth form support over 600 children and young people with a range of special needs.

The academies are:

  • Abbey Hill Academy, a special school for young people with a range of learning needs, autism and complex needs and Abbey Hill Academy Sixth Form, a special sixth form catering for post 16 students with a range of learning needs, autism and complex needs.
  • Green Gates Academy, a primary school for children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMHD), including some diagnosed conditions such as ASD and ADHA.

  • Mo Mowlam Academy, a primary/secondary school for young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMHD), including some diagnosed conditions such as ASD and ADHA.

All pupils and students who attend one of our academies has either a Statement of special educational needs, an Education Health Care Plan (EHC) or is being assessed for an EHC Plan.

Pupils and students are usually admitted to one of our academies as a result of a Local Authority naming the academy on a child's Statement or within their EHC Plan. 

The academy will be named as a suitable placement if it is:

  1. suitable to the child's age, aptitude or special needs.
  2. compatible with the efficient education of other children with whom the child would be educated.
  3. compatible with the efficient use of resources.

We can provide parents and carers with information about each of the academies and what we provide but applications have to go through a Local Authority. 

The Trust's Admissions Policy provides further information.
