IES Breckland is a school for children aged between 11 and 16 and is located 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.
IES Breckland is part of the highly successful family of International English Schools from Sweden, selected as education provider on behalf of the Sabres Educational Trust. At present there are approximately 500 students; this number is likely to rise to 550 by September 2020.
We offer a stimulating curriculum, supported by a wide range of enrichment opportunities, including an annual visit to our partner school in Sweden or Spain where students spend a few days living with a host family, an annual ski trip, an international trip to Poland and a multitude of trips to local and national places of interest, including The Globe Theatre and national sporting venues such as Wimbledon.
