"It is quite clear that both schools provide outstanding opportunities for pupils...None of this would be possible without the total engagement of all staff, teaching and non-teaching and the persistent support of the governing body in the shaping and development of the young people."

Craig Pamphilon, School External Advisor Annual Report July 2019

Saxon Mount Community Special School caters for children and young people who have a range of Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Saxon Mount is designated by the local authority as a special school for pupils with autism and associated Communication and Language Difficulties (ACLD). In practice this means a large number of our children have ASD. However a significant number of pupils also have speech, language and communication difficulties and other complex SEN. Saxon Mount provides a supportive, stable and friendly environment for learning. The school has been awarded National Autistic Society accreditation for its work.

We hope that you find all the information required within our website. However if you do have further questions or would like to talk to a member of staff, please do not hesitate to contact our school office who will be happy to help you.
