Putteridge High School is a coeducational secondary school, located in the Putteridge area of Luton, in the English county of Bedfordshire.

The school educates children ages 11 – 16, in preparation for GCSE examinations. It is a community school under the direct control of Luton Borough Council, and has previously been awarded specialist status as a Mathematics and Computing College. The school coordinates with Luton Borough Council for admissions.

The school announced its intention to convert to academy status in October 2011, under the sponsorship of The Barnfield Federation.[1] However, in December 2013 it was announced that the school had withdrawn from the conversion process and will not be converting to an academy with the Barnfield Federation, due to an ongoing investigation into Barnfield's finances.[2]
