Frensham offers young people freedom with responsibility. In keeping with our approach of mutual respect, tolerance and celebrating the individual, we keep the number of hard and fast rules to a minimum. This means that the rules that do exist are there for a reason – to ensure Frensham is a secure place where each person takes responsibility for maintaining that security.
Some of our rules are written, some are traditional, some are permanent and some are temporary – but each one can be justified, each is applied consistently and our students understand that together they form a set of boundaries within which they can and will grow up safer and more confident.
This requires self-discipline, which is so much more effective and lasting than discipline imposed through coercion and fear. The values our students learn, such as awareness of others, open mindedness, rationality and self-belief, will set them in good stead as they navigate the often difficult path to adulthood.
