Small Project Fund - Framlingham College

The Framlingham College Project Fund is a new fundraising initiative that allows the College to put in place projects that enrich the experience of pupils both inside and outside of the classroom.

These smaller projects usually take less than a year to establish, and the effect is immediate for current pupils, as well as for future generations of Framlinghamians.

We have eight very exciting projects that we would invite you to support.

The Projects

Augmented Reality Sandbox

An interactive visualisation tool designed to make complex Earth processes clearer and more tangible. This very clever sandbox lets pupils mould its contents and interact with a miniature landscape of sculpture mountains, volcanoes, lakes and rivers.

£2,400

Hockey Team Shelters

Borrett’s would benefit from a pair of team shelters for home and away teams. They would be a very welcome additions as the College continues to expand its portfolio of tournaments and events.

£8,500 per pair

Textile Printer

Dye sublimation textiles is a versatile medium that enables drawings, photographs or designs to be printed on to textiles to create unique fabric samples. This would be a step towards Textiles GCSE & A Level and another creative avenue for the College.

£1,200

Electronic Scoreboard

It is so easy to forget the score in netball. An indoor electronic scoreboard in the Sports Hall will not only look professional but will keep spectators engaged in this fast-moving sport.

£1,500

Virtual Reality Suite

The Computer Science Department would love to bring our pupils to the forefront of new technologies. In line with this passion they want to set up a Virtual Reality Suite where pupils can use, program and develop experiences and games using VR technology.

£2,300

Regenerated ‘Tarmac Sea’

The dull blanket of grey tarmac outside the 1960’s teaching block at the Prep School needs regenerating with avenues boasting vibrant activity stations. It needs seating areas that flow and make great use of the space creating a far better experience at ‘pick up’ and break times. An injection of funds will start off this exciting project.

£7,000

Competition Robotics

The DT and Computer Science Department would like to enter both our Prep and Senior School pupils into a worldwide robotics competition that tasks pupils to design and build robots to challenge against other teams in game-based engineering scenarios. The VEX Robotics World Championships happen each year and requires specialist robotic equipment.

£2,100

Rugby Floodlights

From mid-October until mid-March it is dark at 4pm which limits the amount of time that can be devoted to rugby training on grass. The purchase of 16 rechargeable, portable LED floodlights at a cost of £10,200 will enhance training considerably.
