Franklin Primary School

About Us

Welcome to Franklin Primary School. Franklin Primary was established in 1860, making it one of the oldest schools in Tasmania. We are a school of approximately 110 students located in a natural bushland setting bordered by Prices Creek. A focus of our school grounds is the "Big Tree", a giant Redwood tree planted in 1901. Our school and its beautiful surrounds provides a unique environment for children ti grow and to realise their individual potential. Catering for children Kindergarten to Grade 6, in both single and composite classes, children are taught using a variety of teaching approaches ranging from large group activities to specialist programs. We also run a weekly Launching into Learning Early Years program for children birth to 4 years and their parents/carers.

Franklin Primary School aims to be a centre of excellence, working in partnership with our community to ensure learning is valued, innovation is celebrated and leadership thrives. We encourage and support our children to develop knowledge, skills and understanding across all curriculum areas so that each child reaches their full potential.
