The end of the 2021/22 academic year was marked with a Festival of Celebration, a showcase of the Framlinghamian spirit and the vibrant life and learning culture that has been displayed at the College over the past year.
At the Senior School, guests were treated to an immersive experience as the creativity and diversity of our wonderful pupils was acknowledged in myriad ways. Festival goers engaged with a range of exhibits and presentations, watching pupils perform, discuss and debate in a perfect demonstration of the depth and breadth of pupils’ learning this year.
From musical performances, an outstanding Art and DT exhibition, dramatic stage combat skills, interactive business displays, a very continental languages café, a bustling newsroom, puzzle and problem solving, science experiments, beekeeping and robot wars, the busy yet productive event was enjoyed by all during a day blessed with glorious sunshine.
Prize Giving, whether at the Prep or Senior School, was a speech day with speeches, but not about speeches, instead putting the spotlight emphatically and gloriously on the wonderful Framlingham College pupils and all their achievements and efforts over the course of the year.
At each of the College sites both Heads of School, Louise North at the Senior School and Jonathan Egan at the Prep School, addressed pupils, parents and guests alongside hearing from the Head Girl and Head Boy and Chair of Governors, Mr Charles Packshaw.
For Pre-Prep pupils a celebration of their accomplishments and love of learning was held the day before. A display during which children from Nursery to Year 2 gave enthusiastic and engaging performances, highlighting the growth in their knowledge and confidence over the three terms.
Full of inspiration and aspiration, the last two days of term certainly provided an opportunity for all to come together, reflect and commend the commitment and efforts of all our pupils, as well as celebrate and prepare Senior and Prep School leavers for whatever comes next in their lives.
An emotional farewell for many of our pupils, we wish all our leavers the very best as they take their next steps into the world.
