Farnham Food Bank are requesting Easter eggs for their warehouses. It would be great to build a wall of easter eggs in the 4-6 playground before we deliver them! Any eggs can be dropped off in the 4-6 atrium or Liv’s office by Wednesday 29th March.

Thank you in advance!


Easter’s coming soon and we would like to make sure everyone enjoys the easter fun. Hamilton House has decided that everyone should get an easter egg this spring, and to do all of this we are working with the charity Smile Sleigh.  Smile Sleigh collect Easter Eggs and distribute them on behalf of Surrey Domestic Violence to help support children who would not otherwise celebrate Easter. You could help too by donating some eggs.  All you need to do is drop them off at the green shelter, at the main carpark from Monday 27th - Wednesday 29th in the morning before 8:30am. One easter egg is all it takes!


We are excited to launch our next big overseas expedition to Borneo next summer. This expedition is open to all students that are currently in Year 10, 11 (those that are staying into 6th Form) and Year 12 students. Its an action packed itinerary that includes a visit to an Orangutang Sanctuary and Bat Cave, 2 Day Jungle trek phase to The Pinnacles in Mulu National Park, 5 day Project phase in Batu Bungan with the Penan Tribe and a Dive phase. Please click here to look at the itinerary for further details.

The Expedition will be managed by Adventure Lifesigns and the cost is £4120. This will include all flights, transport in country, food, accommodation, trek phase to Pinnacles and Mt Kinabalu 4095m, project phase and dive phase (either PADI open water, PADI advanced open water for those already open water qualified or snorkelling for those that would prefer not to dive or aren’t able to due to a medical condition)

This is very much a personal development programme so the first few meetings will largely focus on individual fundraising and money management ideas in order to make it more affordable. After the first few meetings, we then move on to developing their team work and leadership skills whilst on expedition as they will each take it in turns to lead the team for the day. They will also manage the entire budget whilst away so we’ll be appointing two student accountants to oversee this. We will be meeting every Monday in Lab 2 during lunch 1:10-1:50pm to not only facilitate this but to also teach essential expedition skills including kit and equipment, health and hygiene, safety and security, explorer medicine (they will receive a qualification), trekking at altitude, fitness program, vaccination and visa requirements and a cultural & languages workshop as it’s important to learn the basics to make this a truly immersive experience

A training expedition involving trekking and camping out overnight will take place a few months prior to departure to prepare students for the challenges that lie ahead. Expedition dates are likely to be the first 21 days at the start of the summer holidays. We will need a minimum of 16 students to make this viable so if you would like to know more please do come along to our parent information evening in the Ballroom on Wednesday 29th March at 7pm. We look forward to seeing you there.


Students will enjoy an intensive week of dance. The Cecchetti Ballet Associates summer school is open to boys and girls who are studying any method of Classical Ballet. Click here for more information.

We are very lucky that we have a large number of staff who are very happy to run school trips that enrich our school experience – including over weekends and holidays. We know that trips require a lot of planning and in general residential trips are scheduled a year in advance so that we can organise them and allow you time to plan/save as neede. Below is a live link to our working document that shows our plans so far.  The further ahead the trip – the less details we may have – but hopefully it goes someway to help give the overview.

Frensham Art Exhibition



Courage, talent and creativity were in abundance during last week's outstanding dance concert. The evening saw the most spectacular performances, all of which were a wonderful tribute to Bob, our amazing Head of Dance. This was Bob's last Dance Concert at Frensham, after 17 incredible years of direction. Thank you, Bob


Our Junior School musicians had a chance to shine this week in their afternoon teatime concert. Our Years 4 to 6 students performed in the Ballroom to a delighted audience of parents, siblings, staff and younger children. 


On Tuesday morning, thirty Y11 students were put through their paces in mock job interviews for part of their BTEC Business Studies coursework. Grilled intently by the interviewers for their desire to work as a shop assistant at the shop of their choosing – everyone demonstrated increased confidence, an ability to answer tough questions, and generally good research and preparation ahead of the interview.


Students were asked common interview questions, especially those you would expect at for a retail position, and a random question to test their ability to think fast under pressure, for example, “if you were a biscuit, which would you be and why?”


I would like to thank Terry, Mandy, Allie, Vicki, Qassem, Fiona, and Mark – parents of Frensham students across the school – who kindly volunteered to be the interviewers. Their kindness, support, and time (!) were much appreciated. The students have now all ticked off another component of their final unit towards their qualification.


I normally start with a music pun, I was going to go with “cant stop this thing we’ve started” but as we are doing brakes this week, I thought its better I don’t. The team were thrilled to start this week, Edward and Ava attached the front nearside wheel while Maria and Harrison attached the offside. The whole team helped to put in the braking system which they found tricky to begin with but once they got going with it, they were off! Elijah then put the bonnet on. After all of that excitement, more excitement started with the news that we are now in a position to start it up! Frankie has been appointed our new health and safety officer (No Hi-Vis jackets needed so far)

We are thrilled to share the highlights of our recent celebrations for British Science Week 2023 at the Junior School. Our young scientists embarked on an exciting journey of discovery, packed with engaging activities and enlightening experiences.

For a truly out-of-this-world experience, our Year 3 and Year 5 students ventured to the Chichester Planetarium, where they explored the wonders of the cosmos. Meanwhile, Year 1 and Year 2 students enjoyed an immersive day of hands-on learning at the Look Out Discovery Centre in Bracknell.

In addition to these inspiring field trips, our students had the opportunity to dive into the 'Future of Flight' during their Science lessons, thanks to activities provided by the Institute of Engineering and Technology. This inquiry-based learning experience allowed our young minds to explore the fascinating science behind air travel.

We were also honoured to welcome several parent visitors from the aviation and life sciences industries. A special thank you to Adam Clarkson, Matt Balasingham, Louisa Balasingham, and Wendy Harrison, who generously volunteered their time and expertise to bring the topic to life and inspire our students to reach for the stars.

At the Junior School, we are committed to fostering a lifelong passion for scientific inquiry in our students. We look forward to building on this enthusiasm for science exploration in the coming months.

Thank you for your continued support, and let's keep the spirit of discovery alive!


The recital room this afternoon not only provided shelter from the showers but also another wonderful informal acoustic concert. Amongst the students who perform quite frequently at these special events, there were a couple of new faces too. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to perform in a friendly, safe space.


This week Year 6 invited the members of Gostrey Meadow Senior Centre in to school for tea and cakes and some good old fashioned board games. This fun, social event was enjoyed by young and old and strengthened the relationship between our students and our local senior community.


U13s Rugby – Boundary Oak Tournament

The boys of the under 13s rugby team closed out the season with a tremendous performance at this tournament. We had a tough draw in our group firstly against Pilgrims from Winchester who looked fantastic. Our second game we were more competitive against Meoncross and had chances to get try’s but for some additional support play. A narrow defeat meant we went into a cup competition with a similar standard of school. Firstly we played Boundary Oak and the boys were totally up for this game, some great tackles from Harry C, Negu and Rafi set the tone for a physical game. We took the lead when Harry scored in the corner after a strong break before Boundary Oak levelled. We took the lead for a second time through Negu who was impossible to tackle with agile running before fatigue set in and Boundary Oak finished the last 5 minutes strongly with 3 try’s. In our final game of the tournament, we saved our best performance to last with try’s from Harry and Rafi and great defence shown by Derin and Fraser who were a force in defence. Well done boys! 

Ben W - Schools Golf Circuit

A first for Frensham Heights was to have a golfer representing them on the schools golf circuit. A national organisation running large events on elite courses all over the country leading to a national final. As a strong club golfer Ben did a great job in the first competition finishing 3rd overall on the gross competition with a score of +4. A second event at the famous Turnberry course where his partner in the two day pairs event was his dad once again saw Ben perform at the very highest level. 

Here's Ben's take on these events:

"I was lucky enough to play in two golf competitions last week and experience some of the best golf courses in the UK. 
Firstly on Thursday I played in the Schools Golf Championships at Tandridge Golf Club. There was a strong field of around 50 players off strong handicaps. Through out the round I played some steady golf but made a few silly mistakes finishing in the top 3 gross shooting +4. 
Later in the week, my dad and I headed to Scotland to play in the Turnberry pairs four ball betterball golf event at Trump Turnberry.  This competition was very competitive with people travelling from all around the UK and some from Europe to participate. The competition was played over two days,  across both courses, Robert the Bruce and the championship course the Aisla. These courses were incredibly challenging but breathtaking to play at the same time. As a pair we played some unbelievable golf shooting level and -4 gross finishing tied 3rd but winning day 2! I was very lucky to play in the Turnberry event alongside my dad and couldn’t have enjoyed it anymore!"

U11 Hockey v Churcher's College

The U11 hockey team played in their penultimate fixture of the season on Wednesday afternoon against a strong Churcher's side. The opposition brought two teams and we played a triangular fixture. In the first game, Frensham took an early lead with Otto running on to a through ball and slotting past the keeper. The opposition then found their stride and had large spells of possession creating several chances and scoring 5 goals. In the second game, Frensham dug deep and it was a much closer affair with Churcher's winning 2-1. There was some brilliant defending on display, Isobella making a goal saving block on the line, backed up by clearances from Eve and Juliett. George scored the goal and was awarded player of the game by the opposition at the end. Well done to all involved. We welcome Alton next Wednesday for our last hockey fixture of the season.

U9 Hockey v St Edmund's

The U9 hockey team on Rory's pitch put in a huge amount of effort and enthusiasm despite the driving wind and rain on Thursday afternoon. St Edmund's were the visitors and conditions were difficult to play hockey in, but everyone gave maximum effort, and it was great to watch. The game was end to end with both teams having good spells of possession and working hard to get the ball into the opponents D. Despite the possession, neither team was able to convert their chances and it was a game for the defenders who worked hard to ensure they didn't concede a goal. The game ended 0-0 (with cheers from the soaked spectators) and the players couldn't wait to get out of the rain. This was our last U9 fixture in an incredibly busy term and it's been amazing to see the sporting progress and enthusiasm and enjoyment towards representing Frensham. Well done to every student in year 4, we look forward to the cricket season. 

U11 Hockey Tournament at Bedales

On Monday, the team were lucky enough to attend their first Hockey tournament which was at Bedales School. The weather didn’t look great when we arrived, but the team were very excited to be there and eager to start their first game. Our first match was against Bedales A which was a tough first game for Frensham but that did not stop them trying and working hard throughout the whole game. Unfortunately, the first game was a loss but that did not stop the team’s excitement. We then had a break before our next match, so we took the time to discuss our first game and moving forward what we needed to do. The next match was against Alton School. This was a great game from both teams with some great passing from Frensham as well as some lovely defending. Alton had a very strong attacking team which put our defence to the test, but they manged to prevent them from scoring a few goals. On to the third game of the day, which was against Ditcham School, we knew this could be a tough game as the team looked very strong in their previous games, but the team were still ready to give it their best shot. The improvement from Frenshams performance during the first game had improved by the third and they were playing some lovely hockey. Frensham showed some brilliant dribbling in this game going from one end of the pitch all the way up the other end. It was brilliant to see the team’s improvement just form two games. Ditcham was a tough game, but the team never gave up which was brilliant. The team seemed to be getting tired now, but we had to find the energy for our last game of the afternoon which was against Bedales B. This final game was probably the best match I had seen them play which was a brilliant way to finish their first tournament. Overall, it was a brilliant afternoon which everyone seemed to enjoy, even if the weather wasn’t brilliant. The team should be proud of how they played in every game, and I hope everyone had a brilliant afternoon. Well done to everyone that played!

U15 Mixed Hockey vs St Edmunds

This week’s game was against St Ed’s. The team had another brilliant game with some amazing Hockey being played. The team have really gelled this season which has shown more and more as the weeks and matches have gone on. The game was very competitive once again with some brilliant players on the pitch from St Ed’s and the Frensham team. There were some brilliant passes up and down the pitch with some fantastic movement from Frensham which really opened the game. Defensively Frensham was brilliant and worked well together applying pressure to St Ed’s when needed. It was another fantastic game from the U15 Hockey team, and they should be proud of their performance and how as a team they have come on this season. Well done to everyone that played!

U10 Mixed Hockey vs Churchers  

This was the U10’s last game of the season which was on our home pitch and against Churchers. We knew this could a tough last game, but the team were ready for it and eager to start their last game of the season. Churchers started off and gained procession early on and were applying pressure straight away on our defence which Frensham dealt with very well. We managed to gain procession back with some brilliant tackling from the team. The movement on the pitch and the teams positioning has improved so much over this season which is great to see. I am so proud of how far this team has come this season as some of the players had never played in a fixture before. It was a great last match, and the team should be very proud of their improvements this season. I hope everyone has enjoyed the fixtures and being part of the Hockey season. Well done to everyone that played. 

U9 Mixed Hockey vs St Edmunds

This was the U9’s last match of the season which was against St Ed’s. We have played St Ed’s before which was a great game so we were excited to start. St Ed’s started with the ball and gained procession first. Frensham showed some brilliant marking as well as some lovely tackles. The team worked really hard to push the ball up the pitch and showed some brilliant dribbling. In the first half St Ed’s managed to score the first goal just before half time. After a quick team chat, the team were ready to try and score their first goal. During the second half the defence did an amazing job of keeping the ball out of the ‘D’ stopping St Ed’s from scoring. Frensham showed some lovely positioning on the pitch which helped us score our first goal. It was a fantastic way to finish the season even if the weather wasn't on our side this week. This match really showed how much the team has improved. Well done to everyone that played! 

Staff & Sixth Formers Badminton Tournament 

A really competitive / fun Tuesday evening badminton session with staff and students. Giles / Cristina and Sam/ Alicia both started strongly, but the combination of youth and experience was too much for all the other teams. Sophie/ Alan and Polina / Lotte also played really well.
