Headteacher’s disappointment as computers stolen from former Beccles Middle School site
More than 20 computers have been stolen from a school after a break-in during the weekend.
Desktop computers and monitors were stolen from the former Beccles Middle School site in Castle Hill sometime between Friday evening and Monday morning.
The school site is in the process of being handed to the town's Sir John Leman High School after Suffolk County Council's schools shake-up, and headteacher Jeremy Rowe has spoken of his disappointment at the break-in.
He said: 'It is disappointing. It is the first time we have experienced anything like that but it won't disrupt our plans and we are all systems go.'
He added: 'I would urge people to be on the lookout for the computers.'

The monitors and computers did have stickers on when they were taken between 4pm on Friday and 7.45am on Monday.
A police spokesman said: 'It appears the offenders gained access via the roof and a window into a classroom at the premises and then took the items before making off via the back of the premises.'
