Head of School: Mrs Heidi Philpott

Head of School's message

The end of term is rapidly approaching, the festive feel is creeping in and lockdown restrictions are easing bringing Christmas lights and cheer. Despite the many limitations on schools in the current climate I think I realised this week that there is never a quiet week at SET Beccles!

This week I welcomed a Health and Safety Covid-19 inspection. Two inspectors joined us early in the morning to start the day by observing our minibus routine, they then toured the school, assessing the processes and procedures we have put in place. I was asked countless questions around our new ways of working since September. I am very pleased to inform you that we passed with flying colours, the inspector is confident that we are doing all we can to keep everyone in our school community safe.

I feel it is now time to share our staffing changes for January. I am very excited to share that we have two new Assistant Heads of School joining us: Mr Ben Wilgress and Mrs Charlotte Goode. Mr Wilgress will be leading Year 9 and Year 10 and Mrs Goode will work with Year 7 and Year 8. Year 11 will remain in the very safe hands of Mr Craft. I must inform you that Mrs Power will be leaving SET Beccles at Christmas. Our loss is SET Saxmundham’s gain; as Mrs Power will be taking up a Trust position based in Saxmundham from January.
