A prep school education should be rigorous and challenging, but it must also be creative, vibrant and, above all, fun. At a time when schools so often surrender their individuality in the face of rigid testing and regulation, we feel passionately that children should be able to carry on doing the stuff that children ought to be doing for as long as they possibly can.
For that reason, a Framlingham College Prep School education remains every bit as diverse as it was when the school was established in its idyllic, rural haven exactly seventy years ago. From sports pitches to laboratories and from Art and Design to Music, Drama and Technology you’ll find children confidently expressing themselves and discovering new talents. They work hard but always enjoy their learning and they carry that passion with them for life.
While we are understandably proud of our impressive academic record, we know that long term success is built on broader qualities and values. Well-being, resilience and citizenship feature highly amongst these. Framlingham College Prep School is a happy, nurturing school where children feel valued and inspired. We celebrate difference and encourage pupils to communicate respectfully, to work well together and, above all, to care for those around them and the world beyond. We value kindness and service every bit as highly as academic prowess and all round talents.
But it’s not just the children that are prioritised and happy parents are a crucial part of the learning partnership. With the flexibility of our extended days and our innovative Boarding offering we are better equipped than ever to build an education around the lives of busy families.
Our aim at Framlingham is to develop independent, well mannered, positive individuals who stand out from the crowd in all the right ways but also know the value of the team. The young men and women who move on from the Prep School do so as confident, well balanced youngsters, all-rounders in every sense. We are preparing children not just for exams, but also for life beyond.
We hope this website will offer you a sound introduction to the school and provide you with a taste of what makes it such a special place. However, don’t hesitate to swap the virtual world for the real one and pay us a visit. You’ll soon discover why Framlingham College Prep School pupils are so proud of their school and why we are so proud of them.
