Welcome from our Executive Principal & CEO

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, all of which set 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, an apprenticeship or employment, 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. 

Life beyond Franklin is an exciting prospect for our students, and we want their time with us to equip them with the skills they need to take their next steps. At Franklin, our fantastic teams work together seamlessly to support students throughout their journey with us and beyond.
