At the core of Framlingham College’s teaching and learning philosophy, throughout the whole school, is a commitment to encouraging pupils to love learning, apply critical thinking and achieve their very best.
Lessons are engaging and challenging and we expect pupils to take an active part, 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 subject choices and they can extend their interests through trips, talks and competitions. In the Sixth Form, the emphasis is still on breadth of study with a diverse range of A-Levels, Pre-Us and BTECs on offer. Pupils in Year 10 and 12 have the opportunity to complete the Higher Project Qualification and highly regarded Extended Project Qualification which involves an extended piece of research.
For scholars, the “Pathway to Academic Excellence” Programme gives them the necessary stretch to fulfil their potential.
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.
