Franklin learning community is home to Science, Design and Technology, Art, Citizenship, Sphere and Vocational Education and is named after the English scientist Rosalind Franklin.

Rosalind Franklin became a world renowned scientist in the early 1950s, overcoming the objection of her father and prejudice from male colleagues. She is now credited as being a key scientist in the discovery of the structure of DNA, although, in her lifetime, her work was overlooked. Despite this, she did not give up and went on to complete ground breaking work on the structure of viruses.

Rosalind Franklin exemplifies the ethos of Franklin community, everyone is expected to do their best despite any adversity they may face.
