Welcome to Thomas Mills High School

 FAB LABS Appeal - click here

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of Thomas Mills, a flourishing 11-18 high school situated in the pleasant and historic town of Framlingham, Suffolk.  We are consistently one of the county’s highest performing schools, graded Outstanding by OFSTED.

High expectations of our pupils and well qualified staff lead to excellent teaching and learning.  Students make very good progress during their time here and move successfully into university (including Oxbridge – over 10 students in the past two years), college, training or employment.

Like its predecessor schools, including the prestigious Mills Grammar School and Framlingham Area School, pupils travel from all of east and central Suffolk as well as south Norfolk, to experience an academic education with quality.  The school is large enough to provide a curriculum with a range of options and a site with excellent facilities.  The experience at Thomas Mills High School can truly enrich pupils’ lives.  A bright future starts here!

There is an impressive range of extra-curricular activities which supports our pupils as they become confident learners and active members of the community.  Visitors often remark on the calm, purposeful and self-disciplined atmosphere.  Our school ethos is shaped by our Charter of Values which blends tradition and innovation.

I hope this website gives you a glimpse of the exciting opportunities on offer at this busy and successful school.  We hold an Open Day in September and meet with parents of the new intake in July.  Two Sixth Form Information Evenings are held in November.  Should you wish to view the school at any other time please do not hesitate to get in touch.  We shall be delighted to meet you and show you what we have to offer.
