Mr Darren Gale
A very warm welcome
It is my great privilege to be Principal of Horizon International School (HIS) and every day I never fail to be impressed by the energy of our students, our dedicated and talented staff and our strong sense of unity. Our community is important to us at HIS; visitors frequently express how special and warm a place it is and they recognise how full of enthusiasm, happiness and productivity the classrooms, corridors, sports facilities, creative, performing and social areas are as they walk around the school.
Parents comment on the excellent relationships between staff and students - warm, purposeful and always respectful. The rapport, encouragement and support available to every child creates an atmosphere where children can develop happily and progress successfully. We strive to ensure we live by our ethos of 'Everyone Counts, Everyone Contributes, Everyone Succeeds.'
If you choose HIS, you will become part of something special. We strive to challenge and inspire all learners to develop their skills and nurture values through a love of learning. We want our students to responsibly embrace the challenges of tomorrow. We pride ourselves on our authenticity; no gimmicks, with students truly at the heart of all our decisions.
Academic success is also integral to us at HIS, yet we do not measure success through examination results alone. We put as much emphasis on who our students become as on what they achieve. With this in mind, social and personal development are crucial; we celebrate individuality and diversity. We want our students to be free-thinking young people with a belief in themselves, the confidence to pursue their ambitions, and the resilience to succeed, whatever life presents.
It is our belief that a #standingout learning experience brings with it responsibility and we strive to ensure our students go into the world ready to make a real and positive contribution to society.
Our website can only give you a glimpse of HIS. If you would like to find out more, do come and visit us, we will always be happy to show you around our wonderful school.
I look forward to meeting you,
