SCRAP METAL DAY – The High School

On Saturday 27 November Lawrie Hammond and Sue Ackerley from FOSH – Friends of the High School - donned their overalls and safety boots and drove around the village in Levi Smith’s truck picking up unwanted metal. It was a dreadful day with hail and freezing rain. However, an amazing amount of old stuff was thrown on to the pavements following the school’s plea for scrap metal.

Two very full truckloads plus two trailers and a pick up were collected that morning and weighed back at…

Match Report - Year 10 - Hartismere

We first started with a bit of a worry as the last time we went against Hartismere we got thrashed 18-1. However, we wanted to get our own back and try to play at our best ability, We started off really well and moved into space. We scored 3 times which we were quite pleased about, but then they scored 1. We didn’t want to finish the first game losing so we fought back and scored 1 more goal. This made it 4-1. Miss Firbank gave us lots of moral support like we needed because we were so cold.…

Post 16 Evening Report

Post 16 evening at SHS

The annual careers event for Years 10 and 11 was held on 10 October. Around 160 pupils and parents attended to talk to the 21 different organisations represented.

Match Reports

On Tuesday Stradbroke hosted the annual High Suffolk Netball tournament for the under 16’s and under 14’s.

The under 16 team were up against a number of strong teams. Despite a bit of a rocky start, the team started to work together better as the games progressed. A win against Bungay gave the whole team a boost. Chloe and Amber held the team together fantastically in and around the centre third and Abbie and Sophie worked particularly hard in the shooting circle, despite strong defence…

Year 11 GCSE Results

Congratulations to our Year 11 pupils on their GCSE examination results.  70% of pupils achieved C or above in Mathematics and 68% achieved C or above in Science.  As with many other schools nationally, we believe that English grades on the C/D borderline have been affected by the unannounced grade threshold changes and we are therefore seeking a substantial number of paper remarks.


We look forward to welcoming all our pupils back to school on Wednesday 5th…
