The Local Community

We pride ourselves in our involvement with the local community in and around Woolverstone. Whether we are opening up the doors of Woolverstone Hall for Suffolk Day or holding remembrance services for Armistice Day, it is a joy to interact with and support our community.

Volunteering

Many of our pupils do fantastic work around the school and the wider local community, volunteering their time to help out at clubs, events and much more.

As part of our Senior School Enrichment Programme, we encourage pupils to volunteer and assist with Prep School activities, empowering pupils to improve their leadership skills and further develop the nurturing community here at the school.

Alongside their own volunteering commitments, pupils will often volunteer as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award.

Local Charities

Each year Ipswich High School chooses a local charity to raise money for, through a whole host of different events that take place through the academic year. Visit our charities page to find out more about this year’s chosen charity.
