About Franklin, Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Franklin Sixth Form College

Our passion is helping thousands of students pursue their ambitions, supporting academic and vocational excellence through outstanding teaching and learning underpinned by inspiring personal and professional development opportunities. This sets our students on a path to success.

Proudly serving our communities of North, Central, and Coastal Lincolnshire; we’re excited about our role in promoting life chances in these communities. Our teachers and cross-college staff work tirelessly to positively impact our students’ lives.

Our broad curriculum is intertwined with and reinforced by a range of supporting activities and programmes designed to enable our students to achieve their career goals – because every student's journey is different. Whether our students go on to further education or enter the UK workforce, we want them to do so from a place of confidence in themselves and their ability to continue progressing and developing in their best direction. 

We have a fantastic reputation for 16-19 education, student performance and destinations with outstanding support which sets our students on track for a 100% pass rate on all A level courses. As a result, over 99% of Franklin students progress positively into higher education, apprenticeships, or careers.

Life beyond Franklin is an exciting prospect for our students, and we want their time here to equip them with the skills they need to take their next steps. Our sector-leading Centre for Professional Development (CfPD), along with our Aspire and Thrive programmes, give students a broader understanding of how to achieve their ambitions and provide a basis from which they can build a prosperous future.

We’re ambitious for every Franklin student to develop into a highly skilled, highly educated, and highly motivated young person that can grow to their full potential.

The future of your dreams is possible, and the journey starts here. Join us, and we’ll be with you every step of the way.
