Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to SET Beccles School. It is a great honour to lead this remarkable school and I hope that our website conveys a sense of the passion and dynamism that students and staff bring to all they do, making Beccles such a wonderful place to learn and work.

At Beccles, we believe that every student deserves to go to an excellent school. Our focus is on delivering high quality, engaging lessons and providing students with the care and guidance that allows them to succeed. Our students tell us that they value the way lessons are delivered and the strong relationships that exist in school between students and staff. This is only possible because of our small size and our belief and confidence in every student as an individual.

We offer a traditional curriculum that enables our students to flourish academically and which lays the foundations for their successful progression into post-16 learning. We are preparing our young people to be thoughtful, innovative, capable, responsible global citizens of the future; they will leave us with excellent qualifications and having outperformed their counterparts nationally.

We also believe students flourish if they lead rich and varied lives. We are immensely proud of our exciting and wide ranging curricular and extra-curricular provision and all students are encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities available to them. SET Beccles School is a place where young people are able to learn and enjoy school, developing their talents to the full.

At SET Beccles School we really want to make a difference to young people and we very much look forward to welcoming you and your family to our community and to you becoming one of our many successes of the future. Be assured that we encourage an open flow of communication between school and home so that parents really are in touch with their child’s development.

Finally, thank you for your interest in our school. Whether you are a prospective parent, a current parent, a student, a member of staff looking for a position at this school, or interested in the school in another professional capacity I hope you enjoy these pages and find what you are looking for.

Mrs H Philpott
Head of School


What do parents think

“Thank you for taking the time to listen to us… putting our minds at rest that [our son] will be kept safe and secure whilst in your school.”

“I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to everyone at the school who has made [our daughter’s] first week so good. We were dreading her going to high school especially as she was the only person from her primary going to the school. I am so thrilled that her first week went so well. She has really enjoyed it and we have already noticed a difference in her at home.”
