Danny Nobbs visited the school and spoke to the pupils in an assembly. Danny was an ordinary young man until at 17 he became extraordinary. He had a tragic motor bike accident that left him fighting for his life and then paralysed from the chest down – for ever.
Most of us, both staff and pupils feel hard done by at times, we feel sorry for ourselves, because we fall out with our friends or we have too much homework (or marking homework) or we have to come to school every day when we…Continue

Fifteen would-be undergraduates joined other schools from the region to sample what UEA might have to offer after sixth form.

Said Jacob Cleverly “… the workshops…Continue

The only forthcoming staffing change involves Mrs Cheyne and our temporary History teacher, Miss Barnett, who will both be leaving to undertake new challenges. I am very pleased to announce the appointment of…Continue

There is one full formal governing body meeting each term. In addition, there is an informal full governing body meeting to discuss, and learn about, specific issues. Committees also meet once per term. Three…Continue

We are pleased to announce that as of 1st March 2012 our school became an Academy and will now revert to the title of Stradbroke High School.
What does this mean and what difference will it make to the running of the school? Initially very little will be seen to change; we will gradually change over to our new letterheads, website names and eventually uniforms. The longer-term effects will be significant.
You know that OFSTED rated our school as ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’…
