What says..

School stands on extensive grounds on a hilly plot with the various buildings dotted around, giving a campus atmosphere. Friday afternoon is time tabled for the Seckford Scheme, an extraordinary range of non-academic activities in which the whole school (staff included) joins. All interests and tastes are encouraged: eg sailing, cookery, chess (school has its own Grand Master), and CCF is a top draw for many. Pupils drawn largely from professional East Anglian families, many with a media background (Aldeburgh, BT close by).
