About Us

I am proud and privileged to lead Saxmundham Free School.  My team and I are absolutely dedicated to the development of a safe, vibrant, successful and student-centred place of learning; we believe that our young people are capable of truly fantastic things and we expect them to strive to achieve their very best whilst studying with us.  Working with parents, carers and the local community we look to provide a range of opportunities for our students to enjoy their learning and excel.

Our students tell us that they value the way lessons are delivered at Saxmundham and the strong relationships that exist in school between students and staff.  This is only possible because of our small size.

We offer a traditional curriculum that enables our students to flourish academically and lay the foundations for their successful progression into post-16 learning.  Our strong pastoral support system and wide range of enrichment activities help our students to develop and contribute positively to the local community.  As an inclusive school we celebrate the successes of all of our students together as a community and we have aspirations that everyone will make progress over and above the national average.

Mr David LeesI hope this website goes some way towards answering any questions you have about Saxmundham Free School and our governing Trust.  I would like to invite you to visit us and meet our students to find out more about our offering.  Please contact us to arrange a visit or keep an eye on our calendar for admissions events throughout the year.

Thank you for your interest in our school and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you well as you make the important decision about the future education of your children.
