Stanley Park High is a flourishing and vibrant community school for students of all abilities, housed in a state of the art building with facilities that fully meet the demands of learning in the 21st Century. We retain an absolute focus on our belief that excellent relationships are vital to achieving effective learning and we are a Lead School for Human Scale Education.
The School was awarded ‘Secondary School of the Year’ 2016 by the TES and in November 2015 we received Ofsted recognition for our commitment to a student-centred school, with inspectors grading our school 'good' with personal development, behaviour and welfare of students rated ‘outstanding’. The report described us as "innovative and imaginative where pupils are very successfully prepared for their future lives." Inspectors also noted that "practically all students respond to the school’s motto of ‘Igniting a Passion for Learning’. This is done by blending positive relationships, in small class sizes, with an exciting curriculum.
Horizon offers a fully equipped environment for supporting students with an ASC, which includes specialist classrooms, social areas, sensory room, IT suite, its own playground and secure drop-off area for taxis and parents. Students also have access to all of the state of the art facilities that are available in the mainstream part of the school.

· Have experience of working with students with ASC in either mainstream, an opportunity base or special school
· Ignite a Passion for Learning in all our students
