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.
The Design and Technology Department came up trumps, yet again, with a wonderful display of A Level work by students taking A2 and AS Design. There was also a selection of work by GCSE candidates in Textiles, Graphics, Resistant Materials, Construction and our CBE Diploma. Awards were given by Vinci plc, Stowmarket Rotary Club, Bennett Homes, Suffolk County Council, John Skinner and our Headteacher Mr Penn.

A group of the school’s pupils were lucky enough to enjoy the experience of going back in time at a Heritage site run by SCC Outreach activities dept. Given a group challenge on the day to build prehistoric shelters – they needed to light a fire and use axes and knives properly to be able to create utensils for eating & building. Having their meals prepared in an authentic roman way in a roman kitchen, they were able to do away with 20th century tools & implements of our day – to enjoy going back to the old days. Having a great day’s weather was a bonus – but everybody in all of the groups pulled their weight and were a credit to the school.

Tamsin in Great East Swim
6th form student Tamsin Fisher will be swimming in the Great East Swim in June to raise money for the Samaritans. The Samaritan volunteers work, all hours of the day and night listening to those in need of a listening ear.They support people throughout some of the toughest times in peoples' lives and save hundreds of lives each year.
Tamsin said 'It costs tens of thousands of pounds to keep one centre open each year and I want to help keep another centre open for another year.'
