|“||To provide a top quality education for pupils of all abilities in a caring, challenging, supportive and attractive environment in which all members of the community are valued and where Christian moral values are encouraged.||”|
The school was first opened as a Modern School in 1964, originally designed to cater for 250 students. The school primarily accepted students who were not offered places at the local grammar school. Before the school was built these students would have been taught in the local village schools of "Debenham, Stonham Aspal or at Framlingham".
Mr. Arthur Holifield was appointed the first Headmaster of the school and he appointed the first eleven teachers to the school.
"Following Mr. Holifield's retirement, Mrs. Angela McClelland was appointed Headteacher in 1983."
