Anyone had any experience with these? Thinking of buying one from SuitDirect for 6th form...

Well it's made of plastic if that's any clue to the quality.

I have no experience with the brand in question, but as Steejk said, it's all synthetic. 65% Polyester 35% Viscose on this, admittedly pretty good looking suit:
Brown Check Three Piece Suit
The general problem with synthetics such as polyester and viscose is that it doesn't breathe. You'll end up very sweaty. Second, they usually don't last very long. Pretty soon there will be visible wear, and it won't be a charming patina, it'll simply look knackered.
I'd recommend going up just a little on the price scale, and you'll have suits which will be (at least mostly) in cotton. Get a suit off a TM Lewin sale instead.

OK, thankyou both for your help. My budget really cannot stretch much further at the moment, so I'm really just looking for the best I can find at that price point. Also I am usually a 34 chest so haven't been able to find anything suitable in M&S. Will keep searching...
