At North East Lincolnshire’s only sixth form college, we take great pride in the reputation we’ve established as specialists in 16-19 education. Our aim is to enable every student to achieve more than they thought possible, earning us a ‘Best in the Region’ position for student progress.
Welcome to Franklin Sixth Form College, since our founding in 1990 we've been proud of the exceptional education we offer young people from across our area.
Each year our students are successful in gaining places on prestigious courses at universities across the country in addition to competitive apprenticeships, work and further training. We are proud to offer the widest range of academic and vocational courses available in region.
We're based in the heart of Grimsby and proud to offer a fantastic provision for over 1,700 students from the North Lincolnshire region, providing education at GCSE and Level 2; Level 3, Vocational and A Level courses, and a community Adult Provision offering a range of programmes.
With a very strong vision and set of values and a profound passion for providing young people with fantastic opportunities, education and memories. Young people of our community develop and grow, making their way towards building and becoming the future of our community and beyond.
Thanks to our tailor-made Study Programmes and our extensive enrichment offer, our students go on to change their world. They're more likely to gain good university degrees, and more likely to be successful in securing employment than other sixth form college students.
This is testament to the work of our specialist teachers and support staff, and to all of our fantastic students! We recognise that all students have different needs; our teachers and student support teams are skilled at enabling our students to achieve their full potential. We’re proud of our national reputation for independent learning programmes.
