Here at SET Beccles School, we believe in each and every child.

We are an ambitious and yet small and caring school with big opportunities in mind for those who join us.

Our motto is ‘inspiring, enabling and celebrating each and every young person’. Striving for excellence underpins everything we do and we aim to give our students an appetite for excellence in all that they do, equipping them with a set of lifelong skills which will enable them to succeed. We want our students to enjoy their school life, and be inspired to be inquisitive in their lessons whilst providing each of them with an academic challenge that enables them to realise their potential. We offer a curriculum that enables them to flourish academically and lays foundations for successful progression into post-16 education, training or employment.

We strive to teach them that learning yields a multitude of rewards if it is approached with rigour and enthusiasm. This is cultivated by an approach to learning that is student-centred and set in a stimulating environment. As important as academic success is, our aim is to develop the whole person through a range of clubs and activities which enrich the daily experiences of our students. Added to this is our commitment to build a supportive community that encourages a sense of social responsibility and develops within them a desire to become global citizens. Full details on our curriculum and our enrichment activities are available on our website.

At the heart of our success will be a strong and positive partnership between parents/carers, students, teachers and wider friends of the school. Our ‘6Cs to Success’ underpin how we expect every member of our School community to approach learning and behaviour. To facilitate excellent communication, we encourage open dialogue between home and School.

I hope this provides you with some insight into the life of our School and the founding Trust-wide principles from which we work; yet it cannot truly reflect all that we have to offer. If you like what you read do come and visit us. We look forward to offering you a warm welcome. In the meantime, I thank you for your interest in our School and I look forward to receiving your application.
