Charity fundraising is operated through the House System and School Council, with direction from the Assistant Head Pastoral, the Marketing Manager and the Charity Prefect.

Head of Ipswich High School, Oona Carlin is pictured taking part in the "Pretty Muddy" Race for Life.

"I signed up thinking the race in Ipswich would be good fun, but little did I know that in fact I would be running the event in memory of Dawn Blake, Ipswich High School PE Teacher who sadly passed away this year. It was a very worthwhile and wonderful charity event, and I saw a number of IHS girls and mums also competing. I managed to get muddy which was the aim of the game and raised some money too!"
