Timings of the school day

Following extensive consultation with students, staff and stakeholders it has been decided that the school day will remain as is for the next academic year. However, we are going to review this for the 2018-19 Academic Year.
We thank you for your continued support of IES Breckland.

Big Bang Science Fair

The Science Faculty are running a trip to the Big Bang Fair on Wednesday 28th June, for students in year 9 and 10, at Anglia Ruskin (Chelmsford Campus).

This will be an amazing day out with lots of demonstrations, shows and hands on activities involving Science, Technology and Engineering.  There are only 24 spaces so students will need to get a letter from Mrs Bannister and return it asap.
