Violent burglars stole £60,000 worth of a computer equipment from the Brit School after imprisoning three members of staff in a classroom.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the “devastating” burglary which took place on November 23.
Two thugs, armed with a crow bar and a baseball bat, assaulted a member of staff on the school grounds in Selhurst at 8.30pm. They took him inside and, after rounding up another two employees, tied them up with cable ties and put them in a classroom.
They then ransacked the school, stealing £60,000 worth of IT equipment including apple computers from the schools IT and music labs.
They loaded the loot into a white van before driving off.
One of the suspects is described as a stocky white man, with short dark hair, wearing a black top, grey hoody, and a pair of trousers with a stripe down the side.
The second suspect is described as a slim white man, with green eyes. He was said to be wearing a black top and dark trousers or jeans and had white Reebok trainers with a yellow sole.
Both men were described as wearing black scarves around their faces and are thought to be in their early twenties.
DC Louise Dovey, from Croydon CID said: “We’re appealing to anyone who was about in the area at the time to come forward if they saw anything.
“This is potentially devastating for the school and its students, who may well end up losing a lot of work contained on the IT systems, not to mention the cost of all the equipment that was stolen and will need to be replaced.
“If you know who might have done this, then please get in touch with us or with Crimestoppers if you don’t want to speak directly with police.”
Anyone with information should call Croydon’s Burglary Squad on 020 649 1377 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
