SAXON MOUNT SCHOOL

This is a rare and exciting opportunity for an ambitious leader to help shape the future development of our popular and successful special academy. Saxon Mount School meets the needs of children with Moderate and occasionally Severe Learning Difficulties. A high percentage of children are autistic and a large number have speech, language and communication difficulties. A significant number of our children have other complex difficulties and needs that impact upon their learning. 

Saxon Mount is federated with Torfield School, a primary SEN academy in nearby Hastings. 

We aim to appoint an innovative senior leader who has a track record of successfully driving whole school improvement.

Applications from outstanding mainstream, special school, primary 
or secondary senior/ middle leaders will be especially welcomed

The successful candidate will be an exceptionally talented and dynamic individual, who can secure improvement, is aspirational for our pupils and who, with the support of the Headteacher and Executive Head, can effectively lead a dedicated team of professionals to build upon existing strengths and develop excellent provision within the academy. We can offer a highly positive and well-resourced teaching and learning environment, a talented, ambitious and collegiate staff team and pupils who are an absolute pleasure and privilege to work with.

Visits to the school are recommended. If you would like an application pack please email the school office,saxonoffice@tasmat.org.uk. For an informal discussion with the Headteacher, Amanda Jagot, or if you would like to arrange a visit, please email our Headteacher, Amanda Jagot ajagot@tasmat.org.uk.
