Two fire crews were mobilised and found a shed alight on the premises. A single hosereel was used to extinguish the blaze and the scene was considered safe just after 10am.
A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said: “The fire does appear to have been started deliberately and an investigation is taking place to find the cause.”
Suffolk Police confirmed they had received a report of a fire at the school from the fire service at 9.55am.
