Suffolk one principal, Alan Whittaker, said, “I feel very lucky to be the principal at Suffolk One.

“This event comes off the back of an excellent year and we are very much looking forward to 2018.”

Luke said, “Suffolk One guided me and supported me when I was considering what to do in my future career. I’m now working as a trainee sales executive for the Jardine Academy. I’d say, revise, study and take your exams seriously.”
