Thieves broke into the school in South End, Bassingbourn, by smashing a window between 5pm on Friday (July 9) and 7am on Monday (July 12).

Detective Sergeant Ashley Ryan said: “We’re appealing for anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious behaviour in the area over the weekend to contact us.

“This break-in will potentially have a huge impact on the pupils and their learning over the remainder of the term.”

Principal at Bassingbourn Village College, Vickey Poulter, added: “We are very saddened by the break in over the weekend. These laptops are used not only to enrich lessons, they are importantly also used to deliver our computing curriculum, and for our students that need extra support.

“The loss of the laptops will be felt by all at BVC. We are appealing to the local community to support the police with their efforts to catch those responsible and endeavour to return them to us.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact police via their web chat service, quoting reference 41/52889/21. Anyone without internet access should call 101.
