WHO WE ARE. WHO WE BECOME.

A progressive day and boarding school, refreshingly different since 1925.

DISCOVER FRENSHAM HEIGHTS

The best way to discover Frensham Heights is to come and see us for yourself, but we hope our film and website will give you a strong insight into who we are.

OUR APPROACH

One of our main goals is to put each student's learning into their own hands. They will learn to learn using the best methods for them – experimenting, exploring and collaborating – trying new things, getting things wrong and trying again.

WHO WE ARE

When looking at who we are, it’s also really important to look at where we came from. The things that make this school truly different were given to us by our founders almost 100 years ago and have not only stood the test of time, but are arguably more relevant now than ever before.

OUR BROAD CURRICULUM

Our students explore an amazingly diverse timetable made up of mathematical and scientific, creative and performing, linguistic and literary, physical and technological, spiritual, moral, social and cultural subjects - all held in equal importance.

THE FRENSHAM SPIRIT

There is an energy. A feeling of happiness and calmness. It comes from all the children being comfortable in their own skins. With no prefects or head boys and girls, everyone is on a level playing ground. They can be who they are.

BOARDING

In all our boarding houses, great emphasis is placed on the creation of a caring community which shares a philosophy based on mutual respect, enthusiasm and enjoyment of each other’s company and achievements.

FLORENCE ANDREWS | OLD FRENSHAMIAN

"The freedom given at Frensham, perhaps more than at other schools, helps students to be more ambitious and driven rather than the other way round.

I think naturally humans want to learn – you look at toddlers and they want to learn to walk, they want to learn to talk – and I don't think that changes. The more regimented and stifling you make an educational environment, the more people resist it and decide they don't like learning. Frensham's really good at spotting what someone loves and what their talent is... and they follow that."
