Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to New Horizons Children’s Academy – Child first, Aspire, Challenge, Achieve

New Horizons Children’s Academy is part of The Thinking Schools Academy Trust and are committed to an ethos of excellence and a whole school approach to the teaching and learning of thinking skills. The Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT) is a non-profit making charitable trust that has successfully grown over the past few years. The lead academy is the Rochester Grammar School which is not only an outstanding school but has a rich history and inspiring reputation as one of the country’s leading state schools.

At New Horizons, we want to transform the life chances of every child who walks through our door by providing an education which promotes aspiration, fosters a love of learning within a safe, purposeful and nurturing environment. We hold high aspirations and standards for all members of our school community and work in partnership with all stakeholders for the benefit of all of our children.

We believe that children only thrive when they are happy and feel safe in their environment. Therefore we work tirelessly to ensure that;

  • There are high expectations for every child
  • Every lesson matters therefore they should be exciting and motivate children to think and learn
  • Every child is treated as an individual and with dignity
  • Children learn to play and learn together understanding moral values of mutual respect, tolerance and personal responsibility

Starting or changing schools can be both exciting and daunting so it is important that both you and your child have as much information as possible. You are very welcome to arrange a visit to the school to meet our staff and pupils.

I look forward to welcoming you to New Horizons.

Mrs Murphy
