We started March with heavy snow and very cold temperatures, and so I had to make the difficult decision to close the school for a few days. The most important factor in coming to this decision was the state of the roads, and the importance in making sure that students and staff were not imperilled in their journeys to…

Stradbroke Musicians Inspired by Benjamin Britten

The music department would like to express sincere thanks to the Britten-Pears Foundation for allowing Year 10 musicians to visit 'The Red House' in Aldeburgh on the morning of the 21st February. We truly relished the chance to explore the home of Benjamin Britten; Suffolk's greatest musical son, and one of the greatest British composers of all time.
