Subject Tasters & Workshops

New for this year Franklin will be hosting FREE subject tasters, workshops and mini sessions for young people across our area from Year 5 upwards. These are an excellent way to try out different subjects that you might choose to study at college, meet our experienced staff and see just what life as a student at Franklin College is really like.

There is a huge choice of sessions to choose from and the great thing is you can try as many as you like! The possibilities at Franklin really are endless. So get in touch and book a session.

To sign up for a Subject Taster Session simply contact Franklin College on 01472 875004 or email:
