The teaching and learning philosophy of Framlingham College centres upon our commitment to encouraging every pupil to achieve their full potential.
We want every child to take charge of his or her own learning. Pupils should ask searching questions, challenge assumptions and apply critical thinking in all their studies.
The College values scholarship – scholar groups exist for every year group – and we have a fine tradition of academic success.
Academic subjects – and more
All Year 9 pupils pursue a broad programme of study that, for most, includes two languages and an Extension Work syllabus. This encourages pupils to think beyond narrowly-defined subjects and to develop their study skills, in preparation for the GCSE courses they’ll choose in Years 10 and 11.
The core subjects at this level are English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, and Science. The children can choose four additional GCSE courses and they all study PE, while also receiving careers advice and pursuing a programme of Personal, Social and Health Education.
Our co-curricular activities include trips and a wide-ranging programme of lectures – often delivered by outside speakers. Pupils can also take advantage of various leadership opportunities, such as the prefect system, peer mentoring, the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), the Model United Nations, and a range of sports teams.
After GCSEs, the vast majority of students progress to Framlingham College Sixth Form.
