School Description

Suffolk One is registered as a school, but is referred to as a college. It is much larger than the averagesized secondary school. Around half of students are enrolled on GCE A and AS subjects, with most others on vocational provision including a wide range of level 3 National Diplomas and some level 2 and level 4 provision. Up to 80 places are funded in Year 12 and also in Year 13 for the college’s foundation learning provision, which is at entry and level 1 for students with disabilities or special educational needs. The very large majority of the student population is White British, and the proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is small. There are more girls than boys on roll. The proportion of students who are disabled and those who have special educational needs is below average. As a post-16 institution, the college receives no additional pupil premium funding for disadvantaged students. However, the proportion of disadvantaged students (those known to be entitled to free school meals or were previously classified as eligible for the pupil premium) is lower than typically found in secondary schools nationally. The students’ prior attainment when they start college at the age of 16 is typically below the national figure for post-16 institutions. The proportion of students with the highest GCSE grades is well below average. The government does not set floor standards for the attainment and progress of post-16 institutions. Plans are in place for the college to convert to academy status, as early as September 2015, as part of the Suffolk Academies Trust.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
