Ipswich High School Association
The IHSA is the Parent Association of Ipswich High School. We have two aims: to foster a sense of community within the parent body through the organisation of social activities and secondly to support the school in a variety of areas. All parents and guardians at Ipswich High School are automatically members of the IHSA; there is no subscription and no need to apply to join.
The IHSA raises considerable funds throughout the year, to help the school purchase items that are beyond the normal operating costs of the school. Recently we have been able to purchase items such as a drone and Go-Pro, online sports portal, and a new sound desk for the Hayworth Theatre.
The IHSA Committee meets once a term and consists of about fifteen parent members, from all year groups, and are accompanied on the Committee by members of the School Senior Leadership Team and teachers. We hope that as members of the Association you will support our fund raising activities including the Bags2School collection, second hand uniform shop, Summer Fête, Christmas Fayre and our annual Quiz Evening.

The easiest way to get involved in IHSA activities is to come along!
We would love to see you at the AGM, Christmas Fayre, the Summer Fete or our Quiz Night. Or, perhaps you would like to help organise or assist at events?
If you are able to help in any way then please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you: email@example.com.
The Summer Fete is the IHSA’s biggest event of the year.
It takes place every summer and is always a hugely popular day out for the whole family. Bring friends and relations to relax in the beautiful grounds of Woolverstone Hall.
The annual Christmas Fayre is held each December in the Sports Hall and is a fun afternoon for all ages.
There are many craft stalls to buy gifts from, games, carol singing and Father Christmas.
We hold an annual quiz, which is always a very popular event. Included in the cost of the ticket is a ploughman’s supper and there is a licensed IHSA bar where wine, beer and soft drinks may be purchased.
The date of our next quiz is to be confirmed, so watch this space.
