Horizon Community College, Barnsley, opened in September 2012. With nearly £50 million worth of investment, facilities in this new Community College are among the very best in the country. In July 2014, Ofsted judged that 'Horizon Community College is a good school. Achievement has improved rapidly in all year groups since the college opened.'

Our 2016 results were our best ever results, with 69% of Horizon students achieving A*-C grades in Maths and English. This figure has built and improved on excellent performances in the College's first three years. Worthy of particular note was the fact that 90% of our students achieved an A*- C grade in English and approximately a third of our students achieve the English Baccalaureate.
