Our School

Our School

New Horizons is a new primary school based in Medway and we opened our doors to our first children on the 8th of September 2014. We are a three form entry school, which means we have 3 classes per year group.

At New Horizons we aim to transform life chances for all children and are proud to be a school that holds high expectations, makes learning irresistible and provides a nurturing a safe environment.

As a thinking school we give children the skills to enable them to become analytical, flexible and independent. We also foster a positive attitude to learning, where every child has a belief in themselves and experiences success.
