This report details the findings of the NFER evaluation of Higher Horizons, an alternative form of provision for disaffected students in Durham and Darlington LEAs and one of the 17 first-round projects funded by the DFEE under the New Start initiative. It focuses on a strategic perspective and relays the views of schools, but also those of other agencies and organisations involved, and LEA personnel chiefly responsible for overseeing and coordinating the provision. In addition to being relevant to the participating LEAs, local schools, agencies and organisations, the report may also be of interest to LEAs and schools involved in, or planning, similar provision for disaffected students.
