Welcome to the Franklin College Career Site

Welcome to the Franklin College <span class="darkGrey">Career Site</span>


Franklin College opened in September 1990 following the reorganisation of primary, middle and secondary schools within the Borough of Grimsby. School sixth form provision was transferred to the new college based on the site of Chelmsford School which closed as part of the reorganisation. The college is named after Jack and Florence Franklin who, as local councillors, had devoted most of their adult lives to the well-being of the area.

In 1993, along with all sixth form and FE colleges, Franklin was removed by an Act of Parliament from the local authority to become an incorporated college. In 1996 Humberside County Council was abolished, replaced by a number of unitary autorities. The college is now located in N E Lincolnshire which includes the two boroughs of Grimsby and Cleethorpes and the port town of Immingham.

Following incorporation in 1993 the college diversified its provision beyond sixth form work and set up provision for adult learners both on site and in outreach centres.

Franklin is a member of the national organisation SFCA (Sixth Form Colleges Association)and the AoC (Association of Colleges). Regionally the College works with Norvic (Northern Sixth Form Colleges Federation) for the purposes of development and mutual support. The College has particularly close relationships with the Universities of Hull and Lincoln and is an Associate college of both.
