SAST is a family of 17 schools across Dorset and South Somerset, and together we are working to deliver excellent education to more than 5,000 children in our area. There is real strength in coming together with a collective responsibility for children's education between 0-19 years.

Education is more than just tests and exam results - we place great value on the personal development of each child. We aim for them to ultimately leave school as well-rounded young people with a strong sense of what is socially, morally and culturally acceptable, and to feel that they have a contribution to make to the wider community. It is an exciting time to join us.
