For Parents

Parents, carers and advisors

Suffolk New College understands that parents, carers and advisors take a very important role in the development of a young person’s education. That’s why we want you to be involved as much as possible throughout their college experience.

In the 2014/15 student satisfaction survey;

  • 97% of students felt that Suffolk New College was a safe environment to learn.
  • 97% of students knew who to talk to when faced with a problem.
  • 96% of students knew their targets and the routes by which they could get there.
  • 97% of students felt that their teachers helped them pass their assessment.

Students choose to study at our college because they know we will give them the skills, practical experience and support they need to succeed, and of course the opportunity to study in our new state of the art building and facilities which opened for teaching in September 2009.

Who says? Well…

Students do. 95% of students said they enjoyed their course.

External experts do. Students achieve a number of local, regional and national competitions, prizes, awards and honours each year.

If you would like to visit the college with your son or daughter please attend one of our Open Days.
