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.

Lots of EGGciting things happened this week. On Wednesday, FOF in collaboration with the school, invited a very special visitor to the Junior School. (Check out our Instagram post to follow the Easter Bunny’s Frensham adventure!)  The younger years did a wonderful job of helping the Easter Bunny retrieve all their lost eggs in the playground and the older years spent lunchtime working in teams to complete an Easter quiz, unscrambling the answers for the secret password. Lots of the Senior School children also stopped by to say hello to the Easter Bunny; who knew the Easter Bunny could floss! Every child in the JS  took an Easter egg home as a thank you for all their efforts and an equivalent Easter egg was donated by FOF to the Farnham food bank. Thank you for all that took part and especially to the Easter Bunny for a hopping good day!

Frensham Art Exhibition



“It’s snowing!”

On realising the weather had controlled our life for a day, Frensham’s Got Talent was postponed for 5 days.

Wed 8th March – such a wonderful evening hosted by Oscar and Toby (Yr 10), judged by Becks, Bob and Nick with technical support from Justin and his student crew. The acts were superb, it was so much fun and we all know how much time and energy the students gave to their rehearsals. Thank you to each act, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and look forwards to seeing you all on stage again soon.

Just before school broke up, the Aldridge came to life with a superb Rock and Pop Gig. An excellent line up of singers, musicians and bands spanning across the Senior School and Sixth Form. The perfect end to a busy term.


This week we had not one but two special guests at the session, one of them was Alex who last year was the data analyst, and the other guest was one of our governors Richard who helped the team members who were interested in the telemetry system and understand more about it. The team got to get familiar with how to safely lift the car off the stand and how to safely get in and out of the car and what to do at the pits (which they picked up pretty quickly) 

Team profile: 

Name: Richie 

Likes: sports, 

Dislikes: art  

Favorite subject: dt and ict 

Why I applied: the activities seemed fun and the fact that we get to build and race the car also seemed fun. 


Nursery to Year 3 had a visit from the Easter Bunny, they enjoyed an Easter egg hunt and got a chocolate egg themselves in return for finding the Bunny’s lost eggs. Years 4 to 6 enjoyed a cryptic Easter Egg hunt in the playground and earned an egg each when they worked out the password. It was great fun!


This week in Forest School Year 2 kicked off by mastering the slack line. Set up by a resident expert Matt Brown, all the children thoroughly enjoy this activity and were supportive of one another.

Year 1’s enjoyed making puppets out of clay and card. We set up a tarp to resemble and Punch and Judy stage where the children practiced a scene or two with their puppets, later performing them to the rest of the class. Great creativity!

Year 3’s had a blast playing a few games before a cheeky visit from the Easter Bunny, finishing with time on main lawn to chill out with their friends before the Easter break.

This week saw Year 6 continuing with orienteering and finding control points (story books) around the grounds. Year 5 capped off the week getting hands on with our little Annie’s, completing a lesson on CPR and the use of a defibrillator. This is a great lesson led by Linn K and Matt Brown where we aim to educate our children on basic life support as we value this as an essential life skill for all.


Charlie Bennett took the A-level Film Students to the British Film Institute on Thursday for a comprehensive revision day: exploring ideas like how 1920s German cinema blends realism and expressionism; the subtext of trainspotting; whether or not Tarantino is an auteur; whether or not Hitchcock’s Vertigo fits into the classic Hollywood mode and the impact of the documentary maker’s point of view on films like Amy, Stories We Tell and Man on Wire. A very stimulating day out.


A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated Easter Eggs for the Smile Sleigh collection.  We managed to collect a huge number of eggs that we delivered to Smile Sleigh on Thursday.  Sophie, who founded the charity works with many different organisations and explained that some mums had already been in touch asking if there were any donations they could have and had already found a group in need of donations that ours were going to be going to.  The Hamilton House boarders rose to the challenge when they were given the task of collecting as many eggs as they could in 3 days.  They did a brilliant job, and it has made such a difference.  Smile Sleigh was originally set up to distribute Christmas gift donations and the Hamilton House team have already expressed an interest in collecting donations over Christmas as well.  Very proud of our Frensham Height students who got involved.


Linn Kathenes-McGuigan, Charlie Bennett, Nick Boon-Arnell and Matt Brown took a group of students to Dartmoor for their Gold Duke of Edinburgh training weekend.  Dartmoor may not have the high cliffs of the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia but it can be a desolate place with very challenging ground to cover and tricky navigation particularly when the paths disappear and the mist settles over the tussocky ground. The weather was excellent for training: howling gales; driving rain and cold nights. This will mean that they should find the assessed expedition in Snowdonia in June – easy. Despite being wet, they all worked hard as a team and their campcraft and navigation developed well. They managed to overcome the challenge of forgetting the poles and pegs for one of the tents. Well done to Bertie, Will, Caspar, Louis, Monty, Miles and George – who returned to school, tired and rather smelly – but having successfully completed their Dofe Gold Training. 


Our boarders went out for a fun, active evening of indoor climbing last week.


Year 8 created quick relief print portraits this week of artists whose work they will be responding to next term.

Staff v Students Hockey Match

Another thrilling game ending in a 3-3 draw after some fine goals and great saves from staff GK Dan Pullen. Take a listen to David Lloyds verdict on the afternoon game! Photos by Sabine Yr 10

Staff & Students Basketball Match 

The staff played basketball against the U18 team on Tuesday. It was played in a great spirit and some excellent basketball was played by both teams.  The game ebbed and flowed with both teams leading at different times. There was a great battle for the rebounds between Curtis and Jack.  Finally it came down to the last 15 seconds and the student team were trailing by 3 pts. They passed the ball up the court really quickly and on the buzzer Ben sunk a 3 pointer to equalise.  It was a great way to finish a great term of basketball. 

U11 Mixed Hockey v Alton

Game 1:

 The U11 hockey team played their last game of the season on Wednesday afternoon against Alton. It's been a term packed full of fixtures and the improvement that the students have made from the start of the season has been great, not only in their level of skill but also their willingness to represent the school and positive attitude. Alton brought over three teams and we rotated round to play lots of mini games. At the start of the afternoon, the team found themselves defending deep and struggling to find a way out. However, this slowly changed and the team worked out that playing the ball out wide and then down the line was giving them joy. This resulted in several crosses into the D and chances to score. They continued to attack in waves and found pockets of space in the middle to pass the ball around the opposition. Over the four games we drew one and won three. Well done to all involved and we look forward to the cricket season.


Game 2:

This weeks match was against Alton who brought three teams which meant we could have a rotation of games going on which meant lots of match play for everyone. During our first match we struggled to move the ball up the pitch, this led us to defending most of the match as Alton were a strong side who were pushing for their first goal. It took us a while to adapt and change how we were playing but soon enough Frensham were pushing the ball up the pitch away from our ‘D’. There was some fantastic dribbling from the team which was followed with some great dodges around the Alton players. After the first game we seemed a little bit more settles and ready for the other three matches. It was great to see the teams improvement from the first game of the afternoon to the last. Their passing and positioning on pitch had improved which allowed the team to push and apply pressure to Alton’s ‘D’. It was a great way to finish the season with a great afternoon of matches. Well done to everyone that played!

Girls Football Tournament – Sports Leaders 

On Monday our sixth form sports leaders hosted local primary schools in a girls football tournament. Here’s what they had to say about it…

This week we hosted an under 11 girls football tournament, which was a great success. We invited four different schools with 6 teams overall (Potters gate, Frensham Heights, Rowledge and St Peters). All teams played a round robin tournament with a final and 3rd + 4th, 5th + 6th play off. Congratulations to St Peters who came away with a trophy. During the organisation of the tournament, we invited Sophie (girls football coach) who now has set up a coaching company to attend the tournament and give out all awards, including her own player of the day from Rowledge. We have been coaching the year 6's for the last few months, and decided to give the girls the opportunity to play competitive football, to show off their skills which they learnt. 

Staff & Students Volleyball Match 

On Tuesday lunchtime the staff played volleyball against a very strong 6th  form team. Not surprisingly the students won the first set 25 - 16 and a big upset was on the cards. The staff team played much better in the 2nd half and managed to win the 2nd set 25-22. Due to the lack of time the 3rd set was up to 11 and the staff sneaked a 11-9 win. Massive thank you to the 6th formers. They’ve been brilliant in the Volleyball ECA and we’ve never had some many talented players. 

Staff & Sixth Formers Badminton Tournament 

Another lovely Tuesday evening with staff and students playing badminton. This week we “ mixed things up “ and did the teams out of a hat. On paper the Giles/ Cristina partnership looked very strong but they came up against a determined Alicia / Lloydy pairing , who went on to win the trophy and chocolate. It’s been brilliant to watch the students improve so much over the last 6 weeks or so.Fingers crossed we can carry on after Easter. 

Hockey Mentions 

Congratulations to Hayden and Rudi on winning coaches awards for the under 14s and 15s hockey teams this term and to Jamie on winning most improved hockey player for the under 15s this term. 

And a big congratulations to the four winners this hockey term from the under 12/13s. Kathryn, Erina, Sulli and Ava all showed an  great attitude in matches and very supportive to all their teammates. Dulcie also won an award but sadly wasn’t in school this Wednesday. 


A huge thank you to all  students for putting in  massive effort … was a long hockey term!!


Also a big thanks to Will and Chrissy in taking all the matches.
