Our school is in the small market town of Brandon in West Suffolk, very close to the Norfolk Border. The historic market town of Brandon is located in the heart of Breckland, surrounded by acres of forest, which is renowned as an area of outstanding natural beauty. Thetford Forest is the largest lowland pine forest in Britain and hosts a rich variety of animal and plant life as well as providing a wide range of recreation facilities.

Close to the county borders of Suffolk and Norfolk, Brandon enjoys excellent links with the nearby cities of Ely, Norwich and Cambridge and also the major towns of Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich. London can be reached in less than two hours and Stansted International Airport is under an hour’s drive away.
