Thieves made off with thousands of pounds worth of computers from The Holt School.
Burglars targeted a new computer suite after they broke into the secondary school, in Holt Lane, between 6pm on Friday and 11.30pm on Saturday.
Seventeen new iMacs, which pupils used for its specialist music software, were stolen from the school’s music department.
Headteacher Suzanne Richards said: “These machines, which were only purchased during the summer, had been funded by parental contributions.
“They have been used a great deal, not only by our A-level music technology students, but by all year groups and will be missed.”
