Thomas Mills High School is a flourishing state-funded high school situated in the historic market town of Framlingham.  It is consistently one of Suffolk’s highest performing 11-18 schools with many distinctive features.  The school is an all-round place of learning with one prospective parent capturing that ‘it’s cool to learn here.’  Alongside academic excellence, we seek to nurture personal development and talent through a wide programme of extra-curricular opportunities from music and drama to sports and trips.

Our broad and balanced curriculum offers increased choice as pupils mature.  We aim to provide high quality teaching.  From Year 9 pupils enjoy a more flexible and individual curriculum.  We are large enough to provide a good range of options and facilities; small enough not to become impersonal.  Our Charter of Values shapes a school ethos.  Although year groups are managed by Heads of Year, we also have a House system.  The Houses are led by Sixth Form officials.  There are other posts of responsibility including the Head Boy and the Head Girl.
