Louise North joined Framlingham College as Principal and Head of the Senior School in September 2019.

Following a degree in French and Spanish from Durham University, Louise’s career has been dedicated to independent, co-educational day and boarding schools. Her first appointment was at St. Peter’s School, York, where by the age of 26 she was running a day house. There then followed nine years as a boarding housemistress, firstly at Glenalmond College in Scotland, then at Marlborough College, where she counted a member of the Royal Family among her charges.

Louise moved into Senior Management in 2010, forging a new role for Stonyhurst College as their Deputy Head with oversight for all aspects of the Sixth Form. Prior to joining Framlingham, she was Senior Deputy Head at Oakham School, responsible for the day-to-day running of one of the largest independent schools in the UK.

Louise is married with two children, both of whom are in the Senior School. She loves languages, reading, and the beautiful Suffolk coast and countryside.
