Pre-Prep | Framlingham College

An insatiable curiosity and love of learning is something we nurture in our Pre-Preppers at the beginning of their academic life, just as much as we do for our older Framlinghamians.

Pre-Prep

At Framlingham College Pre-Prep, we know that happy children learn and thrive. So, our overriding ambition for your child’s Pre-Prep years is about making them feel safe, secure and nurtured so they get the absolute best out of learning. Having a trusted bond with the adults that care for them is key to that.

For your child, these first years of school are the beginning of a magical and unique journey of self-discovery; where they begin to find out who they are and what they enjoy in life. At Framlingham College Pre-Prep, we provide children with a diverse range of wonderful opportunities – Art, Music, Drama and PE, as well as core-curriculum subjects – to support this precious time. We recognise that each child is an individual and we encourage them not to be afraid to try new things, sometimes making mistakes, but always learning along the way.
