University of Suffolk — Family Awareness Day

On Saturday 29th April, students in Years 7, 8 and 9 and their parents/guardians are invited along to our Ipswich campus to find out more about studying a degree at university. We understand that higher education seems a long way off but as we are sure you are aware, the choices made at school may affect their choices at 16 and 18. 

This is a free event, which runs from 11.30am – 3pm and a fantastic opportunity to learn more about university and to meet with current University of Suffolk students. During the event students will take part in a fun programme of activities, while parents learn more about the benefits of higher education and student finance. 

A tour of the campus and a free buffet lunch will be provided for all attendees. Students and parents can find further information and book a place via this link: further information students and parents can email

Medical Conditions

It is a requirement that all students who need to leave school during school hours for medical appointments or illness must be collected by an adult family member or other authorised adult.  This measure is in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students.

Please make the school aware of any medical appointments at least 48 hours in advance, wherever possible, which can be done via a phone call, letter or note in the student planner, but please note that students will now need to be collected from reception by the authorised adult in order to attend.  Please do return your child to school after their medical appointment if they are fit enough to be here; high attendance is a crucial factor for student progress and achievement and we want our students to be in lessons learning..

School Transport

Please be reminded that all students traveling to and from school by bus need to have a valid bus pass, issued by Suffolk County Council. With effect from 01/01/15 if any parent/carer has not applied for a bus pass for their child, the school office will only be allowed to issue one temporary bus pass. This will be valid for three weeks from the date of issue. After this expires, we will expect students to have received a permanent pass.

If you have any queries regarding school transport, please call Suffolk County Council Transport Department direct on 0845 606 6067.
