Stowmarket High School - Welcome

Stowmarket High School is a happy and successful school where students are encouraged to grow in confidence and to achieve the very best of which they are capable. We take pride in creating a learning environment where every member of the community is valued and respected.

We aim to be a school where everyone is inspired to become the best they can be and every student receives the best we can provide in teaching, learning and guidance to become well-educated, caring and independent.

  New Headteacher

We are delighted to announce that the governors have appointed a new Headteacher for Stowmarket High School.
Dave Lee-Allan was appointed on 22/01/2015.  He comes to join us following the retirement of Keith Penn, who has been headteacher for 8 years.
Mr Lee-Allan is currently Interim Principal at The Hathaway Academy in Grays, Essex.  He is due to take up his post after Easter when Mr Penn retires.
Staff at the school were delighted with the appointment and look forward to working with the new Headteacher as they continue to make improvements.
Mr Lee-Allan was previously Vice Principal, later acting Principal at Westbourne Academy near Ipswich. 
We hope that you will soon have an opportunity to meet our new Headteacher, who said, “I am honoured to be entrusted with the leadership of Stowmarket High School at such an important stage in its history. The determination from the staff and the governors to build upon the work of Mr Penn was something that inspired me to apply for the role. I look forward to working with the entire school community to achieve the very best for the young people of Stowmarket."
