Students from Capel St Mary, The Oaks and Sprites primary schools visited One sixth form for its dress rehearsal, as part of the Raising the Bar scheme. It aims to inspire pupils to have positive aspirations.

One sports teacher and Raising the Bar ambassador Paul Rea said: “As part of the Raising the Ba’ initiative, former One students will be going back into the Ipswich primary schools that they used to attend to talk to students about their life experiences so far.

“The STEM department at One will be working with youngsters on an engineering project called ‘think it, build it, destroy it’ – with the aim of encouraging more people to consider careers in this industry (engineering) in later life. These events follow on from this The King And I visit that was well received.”
