The history of Framlingham College is, in many ways, a tale of generosity and kindness. Its origins reflect the gratitude of Queen Victoria for her husband’s life, and its continuing existence reflects, to some extent, the efforts of fundraisers and donors over the years.
For example, the Senior School sits in 75 acres of land that also encompasses Framlingham Castle, all of which was generously donated by Pembroke College, Cambridge. Our Prep School, nestling in 27 acres of meadow land on the banks of the Deben, was bought by the Society of Old Framlinghamians to remember those who fell in the two World Wars.
Our benefactors continue to support the school through donations and legacies, allowing us to create bursary funds and to help finance major building projects. Indeed, their generosity is a vital part of our efforts to ensure that future generations of boys and girls have even better opportunities than their predecessors at the school.
Our development plans focus on enhancing the love of learning at Framlingham, ensuring that current and future generations of Framlinghamians make the most of their potential and leave the school well-equipped for the next chapter of their lives.
Please refer to Ways of Giving for more information on donations and legacies.
Supporting the school isn’t just about financial support. We are always looking for OFs, parents (past and present) and friends of Framlingham College who are willing to share their experiences of professional life in supporting our pupils and leavers with careers advice and assistance.
