Framlingham College was originally called the Albert Memorial College in memory of Prince Albert and was founded in 1864. It recently received an excellent ISI Inspection Report in February 2010 and an Outstanding Ofsted report in February 2011, which described the College as highly successful in meeting its stated
aims and mission of providing a first class, holistic education, in a
safe and inspiring environment, accessible to a broad range of boys and
girls. All students are accommodated in seven fully integrated boarding and
day houses: three for girls and four for boys. The excellent facilities
at Framlingham College include a theatre with tiered seating for 250, a
state-of-the-art Design and Technology Centre, a modern library and a
leisure centre that houses an indoor swimming pool, a fitness suite and
weights room. The original library, which was given to the College by
Charles H. Berners, Esq. DL in 1899, was significantly extended in 1998,
leaving a light spacious area where pupils can study comfortably. The College has a fine record in stretching the most able, while the
‘value added’ rating for those pupils who are not automatically destined
to achieve A grades at GCSE and A Level stands among the very best in
the country. DCSF figures covering recent years confirmed this when
placing the College among the top 5% in the country at improving pupils’
grades between GCSE and A level, and this is reflected in the ISI
Inspection report which describes much of the teaching as outstanding.
Three Old Framlinghamians have won the Victoria Cross, and one the George Cross. In the Financial Times "value for money" league table Framlingham
College rose to 8th best value for money school nationally. In the Times
A Level league table, Framlingham College was placed as the top
boarding school in the Eastern Counties of Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex.
Most applicants are assessed through interview and Common Entrance or
Scholarship examination, but we are happy to make special arrangements
for those who are not at standard preparatory schools. Pupils for
whom Common Entrance is inappropriate will be asked to sit tests in core
subjects, and key stage testing is also considered. Pupils who are
not entered for Common Entrance will take the 13+ Entrance
Examinations in the January of the year of entry. Full school reports
will be requested at the time of Registration, and the general school
record and the pupil's contribution to the life of the previous school
is taken into account.
