Co-curricular - Framlingham College

At Framlingham College, education is holistic and immersive; from the academic subjects we teach, with a love of learning first, to our co-curricular activities. Our pupils thrive on the depth of physical and creative lessons on offer. These help every one of them discover their own story – whether that might be as a photographer, a jewellery maker, a composer, a hockey star or a national cricket player.

By providing genuine quality and breadth of opportunity within our Co-curricular Activities Programme, we aim to encourage all our pupils to acquire new skills, interests, and experiences, within the context of a rigorously structured, sympathetically balanced, and highly supportive learning environment.

Experience is never limited, and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider-web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness and catching every air-borne particle in its tissue.”

Henry James, Partial Portraits

All activities beyond the curriculum are structured into three broad categories in order that they contribute to the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme: Skills, Volunteering and Physical. This means that while benefitting from the intrinsic value of each and every activity, pupils of all ages are also working towards the completion of Bronze, Silver and Gold DofE Awards, which are highly thought of by universities and colleges, as well as by prospective employers.
