At the core of Framlingham College’s teaching and learning philosophy, throughout the whole school, is a commitment to encouraging pupils to apply critical thinking and achieve their best.
We expect pupils to ask questions, challenge assumptions and take charge of their own learning. In these ways, Framlinghamians become active learners who are able to reflect upon their approaches to building knowledge.
At the Prep School, the focus is upon allowing the children to enjoy learning, and to give them the foundations they need to build a life-long love of study. Naturally, this also prepares pupils well for the Senior School.
By the time pupils are in Years 9 to 11, the programme of lessons allows them to maintain a sense of diversity within their A Level subject choices. Pupils also have the opportunity to extend their interests through activities such as trips, talks and competitions.
The College has a fine tradition of scholarship – groups exist for all year levels – and academic success. Sixth Form pupils have the opportunity to complete the highly regarded Extended Project Qualification, which involves an extended piece of research.
Preparation for university studies is only one of our aims; we strive to equip our pupils with attitudes and habits that let them approach their future lives in a confident and resilient manner.
