Bursary Campaign - Framlingham College

Transforming lives

Framlingham College has a long and proud history of supporting pupils through means-tested bursaries. This was evident even at its foundation in 1864 when it was stipulated that the College should always have six Pembroke Scholars, pupils who would not be able to attend the College without full bursary remission of tuition fees. These bursaries continue to this day. However, we want to do more.

Today in the UK, a staggering 4 million children live in poverty and we are experiencing a deeply concerning divide between the haves and the have nots. We feel it is morally imperative that we do all that we can to make a difference. Not only does a lack of social equality undermine social cohesion, it is also an unforgiveable waste of talent and potential.

Sixth Form Bursaries

Above and beyond the Pembroke Scholarships, the Framlingham College Bursary Campaign, supported by the Society of Old Framlinghamians, will provide as many Sixth Form bursaries as it can to deserving pupils. This is a long-term campaign which will allow us to provide an increasing number of young people with the opportunity to live and learn at our inspirational school. In year one (September 2022), we will provide at least one additional Sixth Form bursary place. In year three (September 2024) we hope to increase that to at least two additional bursary places. In year five (September 2026) at least five places and so on.

We encourage everybody associated with the College community to get behind this campaign. Your gift, however large or small, will help make a real difference. Together, we can transform the lives of young people. Our community is global and includes a huge variety of people who will be able to relate to our campaign.

The Impact

Our belief in the importance of reducing barriers to access is reflected in this bursary programme. Together, with your support, we can transform young people’s lives and help them create their own story.

“Going to Framlingham was the education that my family wanted to provide me with but were unable to. The experience broadened my horizons, pushed me and pushed my expectations of myself. I thrived with the education I was provided with and now find myself in a job that I love. I also discovered my love for shooting at Framlingham and now shoot for Ireland and am Captain of the Suffolk Rifle Team.’”

‘I received an outstanding education and was able to pull together a strong university application so that I could continue Japanese and German at higher education. Without my bursary, it wouldn’t have been possible for me to learn so much and ultimately achieve my goal of working for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.’

A scholarship allowed me the opportunity to study at the College and have access to some excellent facilities. In particular, I spent a lot of time in the recording studio trying things out – and the pianos here are amazing! But more importantly, the staff here are truly brilliant; their support and encouragement was invaluable as I worked at both my playing and writing throughout my Sixth Form years. I’m very grateful for that.
