College reports 80 per cent of students securing first choice university place




Staff at Framlingham College in Suffolk are over the moon after more than 80 per cent of students were admitted to their first choice universities.

Of the 68 pupils in Year 13, 49 had applied to university, with 40 securing their first choice and four their insurance choice.

Students were unable to sit exams due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning they were awarded their predicted grades, drawing on their performances in previous mock exams.

Louise North, principal at the co-educational boarding school in College Road, paid tribute to students’ resilience during such a turbulent summer.

“They leave behind a legacy that will stay with us for many years,” she said.

“If ever we needed proof of a Framlingham student’s adaptability and resilience, the last six months have shown this.

“Whatever their chosen direction, they take with them our good wishes for a fulfilling and happy future.”
