Sir John Franklin
Franklin (16 April 1786 – 11 June 1847) was a British Royal Navy Officer and Arctic explorer. Franklin was born in Spilsby, Lincolnshire, in 1786 and educated in Louth. Franklin's father initially opposed his son's interest in a career at sea but Franklin was determined and his father reluctantly allowed him to go on a trial voyage. This hardened young Franklin's resolve, so at the age of 14 his father secured him a Royal Navy appointment on HMS Polyphemus. 
Franklin demonstrated curiosity, courage, resilience and perseverance, all of which students in Franklin strive towards.
If you are in Franklin you will wear a green badge on your blazer.
