“It is an honour to work with a great team in house Franklin. Just as Rosalind Franklin cooperated with fellow scientists to solve one of the greatest structures of all time, the Franklin staff and students work together to inspire and motivate all the students at Bishops.”
House Captain: Megan Frost
“I am proud to be the house captain of Franklin because we are named after an inspirational scientist who made important discoveries in her field of work, in a time when the achievements of women were often not as recognised as the achievements of men. She shows us how if were persevere and always try our best we will succeed, and that is what our house represents.” (Amy Pymont – Captain 2018-19)
