New Head of School for SET Beccles School

We are delighted to announce our new Head of School, with effect from September 2020 will be Mrs Heidi Philpott.

Mrs Heidi Philpott

Mrs Philpott is currently Vice Principal at IES Breckland School at Brandon near Thetford, working to develop the teaching and learning there. Mrs Philpott is a strong believer in the importance of supporting the whole child, not just their academic achievements.

Mrs Philpott says: “I was attracted to the idea of working for Seckford Education Trust (SET) because I could see that they value the development and nurturing of the whole child, and there are genuinely collaborative working across all of the SET schools.  I am keen to work at SET Beccles in particular, as I can see that it is was borne out of the local community’s desire to have something different – a small school that knows and values each of its students, and can offer each of them a bespoke education.

Everyone I have met at the Trust so far has been friendly, warm and welcoming. I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone at the School.”

Mr Graham Watson, Chief Executive Officer of the Seckford Education Trust says: “The recruitment panel were all unanimously agreed that Mrs Philpott is the best candidate for the job, and we are delighted to appoint her. We will look forward to supporting Heidi to further develop our Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ School.”
