The world is ever-changing and at an increasingly fast rate. It is therefore important that young people are equipped with both the knowledge and skills to be able to fully participate in the challenging but exciting workplaces of today. Over the years many wise words have been spoken on the subject of learning and these are as relevant to our pupils today as they were when they were first said.
Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel – Socrates
At Framlingham College we encourage pupils to have a desire to know more, by providing them with engaging and challenging lessons that inspire each of them to think and discover for themselves, and not simply be a passive vessel that is being filled each day. We promote learning both in the classroom and outside of it, offering a wide variety of fieldtrips to make the subjects practical and relevant to the pupils.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever – Mahatma Ghandi
In this modern world of work pupils will be required to learn new skills and potentially work in industries yet to be created. At Framlingham College we therefore encourage a love of learning in our pupils so that whatever their next steps are they will be able to adapt and to learn the skills required.
It is not that I’m so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer – Albert Einstein
At Framlingham College we help to nurture a growth mindset in pupils to enable them to become resilient and perseverant. By supporting our pupils, we encourage deep learning to try to help them understand what they are doing, giving them opportunities to reflect on their work and improve it.
