Parent and Carers information

“80.75% of students say their parents help them to make key careers decisions”

This section of Ormiston Horizon Academy’s website is aimed at helping parents and carers source information to help support young people in their future decisions. Below you will find three helpful sections; information about education options, types of jobs and local opportunities.
