About Stowupland High School
Stowupland High School is a co-educational academy school based in Suffolk for students aged 11-18. It is a non-denominational school.
The school opened in 1978. Its catchment area is now one of the largest in Suffolk and covers roughly 250 square miles including a number of outlying villages. The school has approximately 180 places available in each year group.
Stowupland High School operates as a “mini-school” structure. The school is divided into the lower school (years 7 and 8), the upper school (years 9, 10 and 11) and the sixth form (years 12 and 13). Each mini-school has a dedicated team of senior staff, including Progress Leaders and a Head of School, to monitor the achievement of all students in the relevant year groups and to provide them with support and guidance.
On entry to the school, each student is placed in a tutor group and, where possible, the tutor stays with the tutor group throughout their time at the school.
Values and vision
Stowupland High School places great emphasis on members of its community paying regard to ‘rights, responsibilities, and respect’. The school aims for these core values to apply to all aspects of life at the school. It wishes for its students to show courteous and respectful behaviour around the site as well as purposeful and responsible attitudes both to study and to each other. Students are also encouraged to display an understanding of the local, national, and international community.
