Welcome to Framlingham College. My Admissions team and I are here to support you and your child through the process of joining Framlingham College. We encourage prospective families to visit us as many times as you wish, through open days, personal visits and to join us at school-wide events.
We know how important a decision it is to choose the right school and we are happy to answer any questions you may have, however small.
The aim of our admissions process is to identify potential. We are looking for pupils with a genuine interest in learning, and interests that stretch beyond the confines of the academic curriculum in areas such as sport, music, drama, art, debating and community activities.
Our intake is diverse and the means of establishing potential will vary according to the applicant’s age and educational background.
Your first point of contact will be with a member of my Admissions team, who will be happy to guide you through each stage of the College’s admissions process, arrange for you to visit us and answer your questions.
I so look forward to welcoming you to Framlingham College.
