About The College
Founded In: 1864
Biggest Employer in Framlingham
Current Pupil Count: 450
Framlingham College was founded in 1864 in memory of Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria. Prince Albert was a stalwart supporter of education and science, as his patronage of the Great Exhibition so clearly reveals. It is fitting that his statue stands in front of the College which today is a dynamic centre of academic, cultural and sporting excellence providing fully co-educational boarding and day schooling.
The College enjoys a magnificent situation, looking out across the Mere to the twelfth-century castle. The College grounds are extensive and the original mock-Gothic buildings have been developed over the years, as a result of significant building initiatives. Its facilities now are quite exceptional.
