I am pleased to welcome you to the Horizon Multi Academy Trust website.

We are a Multi Academy Trust in Plymouth currently consisting of nine primary, junior and infant schools. These are Elburton, Ford, Hooe, Hyde Park Infant, Hyde Park Junior, Plaistow Hill Infant and Nursery, Pomphlett, Widewell and Victoria Road academies.  We hope to welcome Riverside Community School into the Trust in the future.

We see Horizon as being a Trust determined to celebrate and promote the diversity that is Plymouth.

Horizon is committed to providing outstanding experiences for all pupils through a commitment to collaboration and co-operation. We believe in learning from each other, growing through the strengths that each academy has. Central to our structure is a Learning Board where this commitment is embodied and enacted. This group already have great expertise and a track record in school improvement.

We are determined the unique ethos and nature of each Trust school will be retained and celebrated through earned autonomy.

The journey ahead for our Trust is exciting and if you are interested in joining us on this journey, finding out more about Horizon or would like further details please contact me.
