The SABDEN Multi Academy Trust, based across East Sussex, is an aspirational and supportive Trust, aiming to create a warm, caring, stable, supportive environment in which all staff and pupils feel safe. We are three special schools, a secure unit, a large countywide alternative provision, a vocational free school and one of five teaching schools within East Sussex. We strive to discover success through learning, self-belief and achievement.  Pupils are empowered to take responsibility through a personalised curriculum supported by secure systems.

New Horizons, St Leonards-on-Sea, is seeking to appoint an innovative, enthusiastic and effective Senior Teacher with empathy towards children with SEN.

This is a rare opportunity to join the School and be part of our expanding team, which provides an outstanding service for pupils in the Hastings and surrounding area.

We welcome visits to our school (during term time) and if you would like to see us or have an informal telephone discussion prior to submitting an application, please contact Simone Hopkins, Principal, at 

The successful candidate will be joining a Trust and school that continues to be ambitious in its drive to improve outcomes for our pupils.
