It is not surprising that this is such a popular school; young people are most likely to reach their full potential if they are in an environment where they know they are safe, trusted and valued. Our pastoral care is second to none, with dedicated teams supporting each student in every aspect of school life. Extra provision is available if needed from our student ‘Buddies’, from ‘Taboo’, our peer mentors, from our listening service and our student counsellor.
Fram students know they are the heart of this school and understand that we are all partners in their learning; Student Leaders form a vital role in many aspects of the School and SAFE, our student council, is consulted on major issues which could affect their school experience. Our House system brings with it the opportunity for healthy competition and reward for excellence, along with the fun and camaraderie of the House enterprise.
For our students, the sky is the limit. Our affiliation with the Learning without Limits project at Cambridge University is reflected in our new School motto: ‘Anything’s Possible’. We pride ourselves on our academic rigour and excellent GCSE outcomes and we expect our students to work hard. They reward us with their desire to know more and to understand more fully. Their very good behaviour is based on excellent relationships between students and staff. Teachers teach well; actively, vibrantly and often inspirationally, helping to make learning fun and effective. Our students leave here keen for more; they are sought after by local 6th forms who know that our youngsters are independent learners with an excellent study ethic.
Outside the classroom, students have access to FramExtra, our regular enrichment programme of extra-curricular activities. Thse range from study sessions to expressive arts and sporting opportunities Our Sports College legacy means that we offer an extraordinary range of physical activities to our students, inside and outside the curriculum. We reward both participation and success at all levels, and seek to spread the principle of good leadership and fairness across the whole school.
‘Fram’ is a special place. It has served its local community well for over fifty years and we cherish the strong sense of family within Framingham Earl. Yet we look outwards, too, encouraging our young people to engage with political and philosophical ideas as well as building purposeful links with the wider community and internationally. We hope everyone will enjoy their time spent with us.
