Horizon program

Horizon is Marsden's talent development program for academically high performing students in years 9 and 10. The Horizon program aims to stimulate higher order learning by exploring contemporary, relevant issues within a multi-disciplinary framework.

Students will experience an innovative approach to learning instruction that focuses on key skills for success on the modern world know as the five C's:

  • Collaboration
  • Creative thinking
  • Critical thinking
  • Communication
  • Citizenship skills
The Horizon program runs over two years (years 9 & 10) and incorporates the following subjects:
  • English
  • Science
  • HSIE - History and Geography

As Horizon is a new program for 2021, there will be a one-year program for 2021 Year 10 students along with the two-year program for students starting the program in Year 9 2021.

Students follow the same curriculum as their year level, with tasks that demand higher order thinking skills, and will be expected to produce work of exceptional depth and complexity.

For more information on the Horizon program and to apply for the 2021 program, please review the Horizon Information and Application Booklet (PDF 3.4MB).

The closing date for 2021 Horizon applications for existing Marsden students is Friday 16 October 2020. Students new to Marsden High School after this date may be invited to apply for the Horizon program if places are available.
