James FriendSports Centre Manager
I’m James, the Manager of Framlingham College Sports Centre and I have worked here since January 2015. I started working in leisure as a lifeguard 20 years ago (which seems like a lifetime ago!!).
I have an amazing family which includes two young daughters that keep me busy. When I do have spare time, I love the gym, running, watching any sport I can and I am also a long-suffering Tottenham fan.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Centre.

Hi there, I’m Ben. I have been working here as a Duty Manager for just over two years and very much enjoy being a part of the Framlingham College community.
I attempt to play football and golf in my spare time and enjoy weight training when I can. I used to play basketball regularly and I follow the NBA closely, feel free to try and convince me that Lebron is not the GOAT. I look forward to seeing you around!
