End of Term Arrangements

The final mini-school newsletters of the year are being prepared and these will be emailed out or sent to all parents/carers early next week.
We did, however, want to give you prior notice of the earlier finishing time on Thursday 21st July 2016.   Buses will be collecting students at 2.10pm on this day and transport will be available for all those who would normally travel home using school buses.  Please note that some routes may vary (we will be advising students accordingly) and therefore journey times home may be slightly longer.
If, for any reason, students are not able to travel home at this time, please contact us using the mini-school addresses.  Staff will be in school until the end of the day and we can, therefore, supervise students until 3.40pm.   Please note, however, that no further buses will be running at the end of the day.
The final day will be a “non-uniform” day for all students willing to make a minimum donation of 50 pence.  Proceeds will be shared between Make-A-Wish Foundation (our nominated school charity for this year) and Macmillan. We have close links to both charities and do hope that students will support this final opportunity for fundraising.
The new term will begin on Monday 5th September for Years 7, 12 and 13 and all other year groups will begin on Tuesday 6th September.
May I take this opportunity to thank parents/carers for all their support this academic year and we trust that everyone is able to enjoy a break over the summer period.
Yours sincerely
Mrs KD Grimes, Headteacher

Admissions 2016

Congratulations to all Year 6 students joining us next year – we are very pleased that you have gained a place with us.
We are in the process of preparing some information for you including a “Welcome” pack and this will be delivered  to your school before half-term.  In the meantime, if you have any immediate questions or queries, the contact for parents, carers and students is Mr Christian Appleford and his email address is lowerschool@stowuplandhighschool.co.uk
The majority of students will be joining us for two transfer days on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th July and parents/carers will have the opportunity to come into school and meet staff on the evening of Monday 4th.
We look forward to meeting you all soon!

Traffic Congestion on Site

The Summer Term begins for all students on Tuesday 12th April

Traffic Congestion on Site

May we please remind all parents and carers that if you are dropping students at school you may only access the site before 8.30am and should only drive onto the site to collect students after 4.00pm.   These restrictions are essential to ensure that buses can enter and exit the school safely.

Severe Weather Information

If the decision is made to close the school for the whole day because of adverse weather conditions notification will appear here on the school’s website home page.  In addition, we intend to send an email informing parents of closure to those who have signed up to ParentMail and provided an email address.

In the event of any difficulty information will also be displayed at http://schoolclosures.suffolk.gov.uk  BBC Radio Suffolk will also be notified, 95.5, 95.9, 103.9 or 104.6 FM (www.bbc.co.uk/suffolk),  but there is inevitably a time-lag between a decision being taken and broadcast, or information being displayed on their websites.

Any decision to close the school is based on the following factors: safety of the school site, transport arrangements, ability to staff the school adequately, weather forecast for the day.
