Stradbroke High School is a secondary school with academy status for 11- to 16-year-olds in the village of Stradbroke in the English county of Suffolk. Founded in 1953 as a secondary modern school on the southern edge of the village, Stradbroke High School serves a catchment covering almost 400 square miles (1,000 km2) including the parishes of Athelington & Horham, Fressingfield, Laxfield, Mendham, Wilby, Worlingworth, and Cratfield. As of 2006, this represents a catchment population of some 7,500 people.

The school was previously a Business and Enterprise College, but converted to academy status in 2012.

The school's best-known alumni are television journalist Amelia Reynolds and These Animal Men vocalist and lead guitarist Alexander (previously Roger) Boag.
