Saxon Mount School is committed to the Quality in Careers standard. We will be applying for re-accreditation this year. This is part of the schools ongoing commitment to ensure we provide the best possible careers programme for our pupils.
As a school we are keen to promote opportunities for our pupils to engage with local employers. If you are a local employer and would like to get involved in supporting careers development for the pupils at Saxon Mount School, please contact the school office. We would love to hear from you.
The Local authority has produced a local offer, which is to inform parents, carers and interested parties about local services and support that is available for children and young people with SEN. As part of this process we have produced a document that describes the provision made by Torfield and Saxon Mount Schools. The East Sussex Local Offer site can be found here: Local Offer
"I can say without hesitation that sending Lily to Saxon Mount was the single best decision we have ever made. She has been on a long and difficult journey but the road ahead is much smoother now."
Camille and James Morris have three daughters: Alex is 18, Georgia 14 and Lily is 12. Lily has recently joined Saxon Mount Community School and is in Year 7.
"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.
