Our Schools

Seckford Education Trust was founded by the Seckford Foundation in 2012.

Three schools are part of the Trust: SET Beccles School, SET Ixworth School and SET Saxmundham School.

All the schools in the Trust have been founded as a result of community demand.

SET Beccles School

SET Beccles School opened in September 2012 on a temporary site in the town of Carlton Colville near Lowestoft. Carlton Colville Primary School had moved out of it’s building to the old middle school site in the town, providing an opportunity for Beccles Free School to be sited in Carlton Colville until its permanent site in Beccles became available in September 2014. At that time, the school moved to the old Beccles Middle School site.

SET Beccles School is an 11 – 16 non-selective school and is led by Mr David Lees (Headteacher) and the Chair of the Local Advisory Body is Mr Aidan McHugh.
