About Framingham Earl High School

A community sports centre was built on the school site in 2005-2006, which means that a full range of physical activities are available to students, both as part of the curriculum and as outside school activities.
The school is proud of its pastoral care, with dedicated teams supporting students in every aspect of life and extra provision available from its student ‘Buddies’, from peer mentors, a listening service and a student counsellor.

Values and vision
Framlingham Earl High School has a new motto, which is “Anything’s possible”. This maxim reflects its expectations that students will demonstrate an excellent study ethic and work hard to develop into independent learners able to move easily onto the next phase of their education. The values of self-esteem, confidence and citizenship are actively promoted.
The school has an affiliation with the Learning without Limits project at Cambridge University, which is dedicated to developing approaches to teaching and learning that do not rely on determinist beliefs about ability.
“Adults and students enjoy warm, caring relationships and get on well together. There is a culture of genuine trust and respect within the school. This underpins the good atmosphere in classrooms and in the social areas outside them.”
