Nick Bowen


Nick is currently Executive Principal at Horizon Community College in Barnsley which opened its doors in September 2012 as a brand new school of 2000 students amalgamating from two underachieving schools.  Horizon is now a hugely successful school with a strong reputation, regionally and nationally. From the start, Nick has placed Careers and Enterprise at the heart of his vision for the College, setting up a Careers and Enterprise Department several years in advance of the national careers strategy. 

Previously, Nick was Headteacher in the North East for ten years at St Benet Biscop Business and Enterprise College where he discovered the important role that educational leaders can play in the regeneration of a region.  Originally from Yorkshire, Nick was keen to return here to take up the post of Principal at, what he believed to be, one of the most exciting developments in education currently in the UK.  He considers it a real privilege to help lead this proud community into a new and transformational era.

Nick currently works two days a week leading on the Barnsley Alliance – a sector led model for future school challenge and support in Barnsley.  Nick is Vice Chair of Governors at Barnsley College and is on the Academy Advisory Board for Darton College.  He is a Headteacher Ambassador for the Youth Sports Trust and a member of the Career and Enterprise Headteacher Advisory Group.
