Final Approval for Brandon’s New SchoolFriday, July 20, 2012 - 8:37am
Ofsted’s pre-opening inspection also took place successfully on Thursday, July 19, meaning that the school now also has the regulator’s permission to open.
The school’s principal, Sherry Zand, welcomed the news.
She said: “This is fantastic news and a real tribute to all the hard work that has been put into this project by all involved thus far. Onwards and upwards.”
IES Breckland will open its doors to pupils aged between 11 and 14 for the first time on Monday, September 10. Over the next two years the school will grow with its pupils so that it educates those aged between 11 and 16.
The school will be a stimulating, secure and inclusive centre of both academic and vocational excellence in which students from all backgrounds and faiths in Brandon and its surrounding area are equally valued.
It will have, as its core focus, the delivery of high quality secondary education. Children will be supported to achieve better than they first thought possible.
An exhibition on Thursday, July 26, will give people the chance to see the transformation the buildings will go through to provide the best possible school for pupils from the area.
The proposals, which have been drawn up by project architects, Pick Everard, will be shown at the Brandon House Hotel, High Street, Brandon, on Thursday, July 26, from 3pm until 7pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
