Franklin is, first and foremost, a college for our community. As recognised by OFSTED the college is ‘embedded within its local community and creating an environment in which young people thrive’.
Our students go on to do great things, and we are delighted that Franklin students are more likely to gain good university degrees and more likely to be successful in securing employment than other sixth form college students nationally. We are immensely proud of our ‘Best in the Region’ position for student progress for the last two years.
Franklin is proud to offer the widest range of academic and vocational courses in the region. With our tailor made Study Programmes coupled with our extensive enrichment offer our students go on to change their world!
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.
Our nationally recognised sector-leading Centre for Professional Development boasts extensive links with local and national employers, giving Franklin students unrivalled access to a range of fully bespoke programmes, supporting every step of the journey to professions such as Medicine, Law, Teaching and so on. Professionals’ programmes also include High Flyers, working to prepare students for Oxbridge and Russell Group university applications, and our Talented Athlete Support Scheme which ensures regional and national level sports competitors can balance their sport and educational commitments effectively.
We are also a founder member of the Venn Group, working in partnership with four other Sixth Form Colleges in our wider region (John Leggott, Wyke, Wilberforce and Scarborough). This group forms an engine for quality improvement and staff development in the area.
Franklin College will provide an excellent learning experience, in an inclusive and supportive environment, which inspires students to achieve their potential. Innovative, outward looking and working in partnership, we will raise aspirations for young people and adults.Mission Statement
