Mount Tamar School, Plymouth

We are a friendly and caring community that firmly believes in treating each young person as an individual and providing them with the skills and tools they need to be a success. Mount Tamar School offers a quality-learning environment with all students being supported by a team of experienced trained staff dedicated to sustaining a school, where excellent teaching enables students to develop their abilities to the full.

The partnership with parents, carers and the wider community is critical in developing all of our young people’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual qualities and we are uncompromising in our pursuit of the best for all.

We aim to make education real, interesting, relevant and practical through an ethos of learning outside the classroom. Using outdoor education and forest schools, we seek to develop social and emotional aspects of learning. Making the right choice of school is one of the most difficult decisions.


My name is Chris Holl and as an Assistant Head at Mount Tamar, I also have a responsibility for all aspects of Careers and ensuring that all of our students have a full understanding about the World of Work, industries, the job market as well as training available in the area. This is to ensure that our students have the
most up to date knowledge and that we have given them all the tools that they will need for their career development.

The careers policy outlined as a separate link shows the resources and the training given as well as how we make sure that parents and stakeholders alike can access information about the careers programme.

Further to this, we hold a number of events as part of the Mount Tamar careers offer; If you are a provider and would like an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and / or their parents / carers please find further details below

Should you wish to contact me, my email is: and my telephone number is 01752 365128

A further point to note is that all of the website details for careers is reviewed annually and our next review of the data published will be December 2021

We have worked with a large number of fantastic employers including Tesco, National Marine Aquarium, Dartmoor Zoo and Bluescreen IT. There are more details of work experience placements show within the sub headings in this section of the website. Further to this there are many links to other useful websites which I hope that parents and students alike will utilise to help us to ensure that we give every child within our school every opportunity to have a varied and successful career in the future. If you think that you could help to raise student aspirations by taking part in our careers assembly programme, or even by offering workplace partnerships like the ones we have already, we would love to hear from you.

Within this section there is also a link to the local market information. For all of our parents and our students, please have a look at this page as there is some very good information regarding the jobs and roles in every sector which will be able to help decide the way forward for you!

All students use the Fast Tomato system (see below) to support their careers and employability activities.
