Views sought on new Brandon free school

Two further consultations on a new free school for Brandon have been planned.

Breckland Middle School in Brandon is set to close under a Suffolk County Council education shake-up in July, which has paved the way for a community-run educational trust – Sabres (Save Breckland School) – and a Swedish-owned private company to establish IES Breckland.

The school is due to open in September under principal designate Sherry Zand and is the first in England to use an education provider.

The first consultation evening will be held on March 23 at 7pm at Breckland Middle School, while the second will be on April 14 between 10.30am and 12.30pm at Brandon Leisure Centre.

The two events will form part of a six week consultation which will run until April 20 and allow people to have their say on the school.
