What Our Students Say


Aala Ali

Previous School: Stoke High School
“ I love the environment, it’s so much more relaxed and friendlier than most other sixth forms. It has an atmosphere that makes you feel at home right from the start and everybody around you will help with that. ”

Holly Goodwyn

Previous School: Thomas Wolsey School
“ I get lots of help from my assistants and other students in class. I really like (my teacher) Mark’s lessons, they are quite interesting. He teaches me Business and helps with my English and Maths. I’ve also made lots of new friends. I like my independence; I can go wherever I want at break and I don’t have to stay in one place. ”

Gemima Christodoulou-Peace

Previous School: Debenham High School and a previous sixth form
“ My previous sixth form did not offer me the opportunities that I have had here. We only had half a day in the school week in the workshop but here you have 2 days which I find much more helpful to my course, so I decided to take up the second year of my course here. I also knew friends who came to One the year before so that made the decision to switch easier, but it also just seemed a really good college; the high pass rates and relaxed atmosphere really appealed to me. ”

Freddie Alcock

Previous School: Stonelodge Academy
“ It’s a great experience, I’ve made lots of new friends; both in Foundation Learning and amongst other students around the college. My friends and the staff have supported me through some difficult times and they have really helped. The teaching assistants are always there to help, and their support has helped me become a grown up and become more independent, but they still help me with my classes if I need it, like Maths. ”

Kennedy Martin

Previous School: Hadleigh High School
“ I like the environment; it’s very open and just generally comfortable to be in. The teachers are also very helpful, they always have time to help if you’re stuck and students are definitely first priority. They are easily accessible throughout the day whether you want some individual help at lunchtime or just to drop them an email in the evening. I also feel like I’m always pushed to challenge myself within the work; my workload has increased as my ability to cope with it has as well. The facilities are also very good and the photography department especially is great. ”

Mehjaben Rahman

Previous School: Ormiston Endeavour Academy
“ It’s really easy to be here, the environment is great; it’s full of nice people and the staff are really friendly. I’ve made some good friends which really helps with the academic side of the college. ”
