The County Upper Academy Trust in Bury St Edmunds is arguing that All-through schools, which teach children from 5 to 18, are the answer to Suffolk's education problems.
The County Council is proposing to make schools in Bury St Edmunds two-tier, like the rest of the county.
"All-through is the forward looking model.
"It obviously looks after the student from the minute they start school right through until they leave school.
"It allows the curriculum and the assessment to be co-ordinated, so there are in effect no transitions, and in fact one child said to us, its just like moving a classroom."
