We welcome boarders at Frensham from Year 7 upwards and offer full, weekly and, where possible, flexi boarding. Our boarding houses are relaxed, warm, lively and supportive homes from home, where Middle School students mix naturally across year groups. Several day students take advantage of the flexi boarding option and there is no distinction between day and boarding students.
Boarders share a bedroom with one or two others until they are in Year 11 when they have their own room. We have a resident nurse on site at all times. Many of our weekly boarders take advantage of our bus that runs from school to London Waterloo on Friday evenings, stopping at various places en route, and back to school from Waterloo on Sunday evenings.
Alongside our many and varied extracurricular activities offered after school on weekdays and open to all students, boarders are offered shopping, theatre and cinema trips as well as impromptu sports matches, pamper evenings, barbecues and so on. These are not compulsory because we also know that boarders enjoy the different pace of the houses at weekends, when they can relax and unwind just as they would at home.
