Child Trust Fund Transfer

Hi, I have recently turned 18 and have gained access to my Child Trust Fund and I intend on using it in the near future to contribute to my living costs at University. I am wondering if it is beneficial to keep it in the OneFamily account or if i should transfer it into a savings account, if so what savings account would you recommend. 

Any help would be greatly appreciatated!
