About Stowupland High School
Our 11-18 school is located in the village of Stowupland in one of the most rural parts of Mid-Suffolk. It opened in 1978 and its buildings were designed to blend with the local architecture. The extensive use of pantile roofs and stained boarding are in keeping with the village character. A community sports centre opened in 1999. We are the lead school in the John Milton Academy Trust, and are looking forward to the opening of our new dedicated Sixth Form building in September 2020.
