The Horizon Educational Trustcelebrates another year of excellent matric results with the release of the 2022 IEB Matric results on 18 January 2022 and GDE Matric Results on 20 January 2022. Once again, the Horizon Educational Trust has achieved a 100% pass rate across their eight educational institutions based in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth. A total of 308 students sat the exams in 2022, achieving a 92,75% Bachelor pass and 740 distinctions.

Transformational in intention, the Horizon Educational Trust has played a vital role in the development of South Africa youth by providing quality education and opportunities for academic excellence and social mobility to students from underprivileged backgrounds. The Trust provides scholarships to academically deserving students who do not have the financial means to receive quality education. Thus, not only empowering students through education, but also providing them with the tools and resources necessary to succeed in life.

The Horizon Educational Trust strives towards excellence in Mathematics, Physical Science, and Computer education and through their vision and dedication the schools started producing excellent matric results, particularly in these subjects. This year was no different with 127 awarded distinctions in Mathematics, with one learner achieving 100%. Seventeen students graduated from AP Maths with distinction.  In Physical Science 101 distinctions were achieved and in Life Sciences: 36 distinctions.

The Horizon Educational Trust Spokesperson and Education Director Zafer Soyertas attributed the success of Horizon Education Trust to both the commitment of a dedicated staff and parent collaboration and the hard work and resilience of the students.

Established in 1998 by a group of Turkish philanthropists in South Africa, the Horizon Educational Trust opened their first school in 1999 with just 20 students. Twenty-four years later they have educated more than 4500 students in various educational institutions based in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth. Emphasising quality education for those who cannot afford it,

The Trust’s consistently high results and excellent teaching standards results in their students being accepted into the Medical, Engineering, IT, Actuarial Science, and Accounting fields. A 100% Matric pass rate has become a tradition for Horizon Educational Trust’s schools, along with a significantly high bachelor pass rate and an enviable ratio of 2,9 distinctions per learner. The majority of their alumni receive acceptance to study in South Africa’s most prestigious universities. The schools also participate in national and international Science and Maths Olympiads, and their students have brought home many medals, showcasing their academic excellence and potential.
