Day One of lessons for students at new sixth-form centre
IPSWICH: Students at the town’s new sixth form centre have had their first day of lessons.
Teaching began yesterday at the Suffolk One centre in Scrivener Drive on the edge of Ipswich, with students from across south east Suffolk getting down to work.
They first visited the centre just after getting their GCSE results to formally register with the college and then spent a day there last week to collect their passes and be allocated classes.
But yesterday saw the first-ever lessons at the centre and gave them a chance to get to grips with millions of pounds worth of specialist equipment.
Suffolk One replaces sixth forms at Chantry, Westbourne, and Thurleston/Claydon and also offers sixth form studies for students from Hadleigh, East Bergholt, and Holbrook High Schools.

On the first day there were some problems with full buses heading to and from the centre.
However, bosses at Ipswich Buses are monitoring routes to the new centre to try to iron out any early glitches as soon as possible.
