Catchment Villages and School Funded Travel

As well as Framlingham, the catchment villages for our school are Cransford, Great Glemham, Hacheston, Parham and Saxtead (Catchment Map).  The school does take children from outside this catchment if spaces allow.  

IMPORTANT: Please visit Suffolk on Board for full details about SCC funded school travel as it is your NEAREST school (which may NOT be your CATCHMENT school) that you can have funded transport for. 

We strongly recommend that you check which school is your nearest suitable school on Nearest School Checker because this might not be your catchment area school.


If your child is eligible for SCC funded school travel you MUST to opt-in to receive travel for the start of the school term:

  • If your child already receives SCC funded travel you still need to opt-in every year.
  • If your child is starting secondary school in September and they are eligible for SCC funded school travel you will be contacted. You will need to opt-in if you would like your child to use this service.
