Stowmarket High School - Welcome Updates...

Dear Parents, Carers,

This term will see Year 8 join us for the first time. As I write I know that the staff at Stowmarket have been working extremely hard to ensure everything is ready for when these students arrive. The next key focus will be ensuring those students taking examinations are as best prepared as we can make them. I will use this term to meet as many of the stakeholders in our school as possible, in the process shape the new vision and direction of the school. To this end I look forward to meeting as many parents as I can. My diary can get extremely busy, but I am available to meet from 7am most days - just contact the school office to book an appointment to discuss any issue, question or concern that you might have.
I am very excited about what we are going to achieve at Stowmarket - I very much look forward to working with you to achieve the very best for the students at the school.

Yours sincerely

Dave Lee-Allan

Wednesday 6th May

Our Year 10 basketball team had a very good result against Ormiston Endeavour, winning 32-5
The top scorers were:
Reuben Bailey 12
Jai Gayle 8
Callum Murton 8
Rob Scott Jenner also played well in his first game for the Year 10s.

On 7th May we took 15 students to the Suffolk Schools Athletics competition. The standard of athletics was extremely high with the best athletes from all schools in Suffolk attending. 
All of our students put in excellent performances, often against older students, and all were very good representatives of the school.  Some stand out performances from the day were:

Jai Gayle 2nd in the Year 11 triple jump (despite being in Year 10) with a distance of 11.85m

Josh Swann 2nd in the 800m with a time of 2:20

Maddy Taylor 3rd in High Jump with a best jump of 1.50m

Chris Morton 3rd in 3000m

Emily Moyes did extremely well winning both the 800m and steeplechase despite competing against students two year older! Emily’s time for the steeplechase (5:11) has guaranteed her direct qualification to the national schools competition which is a fantastic achievement. 
Her personal best time from yesterday places her the 4th best in the whole of the UK this year. Brilliant stuff Emily!

Jai, Chris and Josh’s performances were good enough for them to qualify for the Anglian Schools Competition, which is an invitational event for the best athletes in East Anglia.
Well done to all of our super athletes and the staff who have worked with them.
