SAFEGUARDING UPDATE FROM JO AND JACK
In Notices on Monday we reminded the children about a few of the changes to school routine now the nights are drawing in and weather has become more unsettled, to say the least! With all the rain over half term the woods are now out of bounds for the children to play in during break and lunchtime. After school, once they have collected their things, said goodbye to friends and had a well-earned snack if they wish to, if they are still on site at 4.30 they should be in the Boarding House (if boarding!), in an ECA or in the Library. This way we know where they are and can keep them safe in the dark! We also spoke to them about crossing the road on campus. The younger children know well how to do this and a Year 7 volunteer reminded the older children about stop, look and listen. Finally, we take every opportunity to remind them that if they are struggling they should reach out to us for help. Their tutor, Head of Year or any member of staff are all here for them and if they need a moment for some time out or help with anything they can come to the Pastoral Hub and ask for help at any time. Asking for help is a sign of strength and something to be proud of doing as we all need help at times. Have a great second half of term.
FRENSHAM MY JOURNEY PODCAST - click here to listen to the first episode
Welcome to My Journey, a careers podcast produced by Frensham Heights School. This podcast focuses on the career journeys of our students, parents, staff, and governors from leaving school to where they are now. In each episode of My Journey, we'll find out what they've learned along the way, what challenges they've faced, and how they've overcome them. We'll also talk about which life skills have played a role in their success. In our first episode, we speak to Charlie Bennett, Director of Innovation and Head of 6th form at Frensham Heights. We talk about his decision to become a Dive Master, his passion for being behind a camera which eventually led him to television script writing! Charlie recounts the challenges he faced along the way, and how he was able to overcome them on the road to success. We'd love it if you could share your career journey with the students via the My Journey podcast, please contact email@example.com for more information!

THIS WEEK AT FRENSHAM
NEW YORK TRIP
Our GCSE and A-level students are still buzzing from an amazing performing arts, art and business studies trip to New York. It's not often you experience a masterclass at Juilliard, tour Wall Street , watch the ballet in Manhattan, walk The High Line, visit The 9/11 Memorial, experience Broadway, The Guggenheim, The Witney Art Gallery the Natural History Museum, navigate the Metro, witness incredible views and even spend Halloween in Time Square!
REAL MADRID FOOTBALL TOUR
During the half term 26 students from year 7 to 12 embarked on an unforgettable experience to Real Madrid for a European football tour. This was truly a memorable experience for everyone involved with the chance to train like professionals at one of the worlds most successful football teams, play against local Spanish opposition and enjoy the culture of the Spanish capital. The students flew to Madrid on the last Friday before the break and arrived late afternoon, the activities began straight away with a trip to a bowling alley in the city before heading to the hotel to check in, have dinner and unpack. On our first full day the U15 side played their match against Jarama Racez at the beIN Sports academy. The first half was a close affair with Frensham enjoying large spells of possession but couldn’t find the cutting edge heading into the break 1-0 down. In the second half Frensham listened well to feedback and adapted their play in the wide areas, which led to the equaliser and then dominance to go on and win 3-1 in a thoroughly enjoyable game. Jack and Zach the goal scorers with well taken finishes and jack the motm. At the same time the U13 team were able to enjoy the facilities and train on the next pitch in preparation for their fixture on Monday evening. In the afternoon the boys headed to a local shopping centre in the city and were able to enjoy some time shopping and eating before heading back to the hotel to watch the rugby World Cup And premier league. On the Sunday the boys headed to the Estado metropolitano, the home of Athletico Madrid for a tour of their impressive stadium and a trip round the club museum and visit the club megastore. They got to spend some time in the executive box before heading down to the changing rooms and pitch side before getting some photos in the media conference suite. In the afternoon we headed to Real Madrid Women against Levante at the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium where Real Madrid played their matches during the stadium renovation. Levante came out 2-1 winners in a very wet evening in Madrid. The Monday was absolutely action packed with morning and afternoon training sessions at Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training complex, a tour of the Santiago Bernabéu and a match on Monday evening. The boys arrived at the academy building and quickly changed into Kit before heading out onto the academy pitches where they were met by two academy coaches who each trained the older and younger teams. These were high quality sessions in a top professional setting. After lunch, the boys came back for the second session before heading straight into the city of a tour of The Bernabéu, the home of Real Madrid. The stadium has seen a huge renovation project, a lot of which was still going on due to international break and champions league away games. Therefore the boys saw the executive boxes and the museum but this allowed to see what an impressive arena it is and what it would like to be a fan there. Following some food at a shopping centre the U13 team then took on a very good Juventud Torrejón side a short trip from the hotel. This was an end to end game with Frensham passing the ball brilliantly and defending resolutely but having to deal with some very physical players and forwards with a lot of pace. The game ended 4-3 to the hosts with Zach and Ollie scoring the goals and Alfie motm in a highly competitive and thrilling game under the lights. Finally the boys were ready to head back for some food and bed. On the last day we had two more training sessions before heading to the airport to fly back home for a well deserved rest. During the trip we ran a fines system where the 4 travel groups battled against each other to earn the lowest possible points to win a team prize. Points were awarded for behaviour not in keeping with the professional sports environment we were in, such as late to meeting times, not having the correct equipment required for the activity and technology use during social times such as meal times. Andy’s team accumulated the lowest points over the five days and won the edible prizes. Over the five days the students behaviour was exemplary and they were a credit to the school. They gave maximum effort to improving their football skills and game understanding and interacted brilliantly with each other in a group of a complete mix of ages. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience to be part of and speaking for the students they all had an amazing time!
MALTA NETBALL TOUR
Frensham took 20 keen netball players from years 8-11 to Malta this year for our annual tour. It was fantastic to be able to take our netballers abroad again. It was a fun and busy tour allowing our girls to develop their netball skills further, have a new coaching voice and some fresh opposition. The girls were involved in some fixtures against local teams and schools, and a tournament which was end to end excitement. Each and every girl worked hard on court and played their best netball. It was so exciting to watch them put their skills to the test, against some very physical and experienced teams. Often they played out of position and needed to play some smart netball. The girls were amazing on tour, kind and inclusive and we all managed to have a really good laugh (the makeup in Kiko). The thirty degrees sunshine also really helped after a dismal summer! Alongside the netball, the girls enjoyed cooling off in the hotel pool, shopping, a beautiful boat tour (albeit a few jelly fish) bowling and a few games of laser tag before we got on the plane. We look forward to future sports tours. We are hoping that more and more girls can be involved in these amazing opportunities and build upon their school netball.
Thirty-six Year 10 and 11 students headed off to France and Belgium last Thursday for a History trip. The trip proved to have multiple opportunities for Art and Physics too. On Day 1, we visited the Second World War sites of Dunkirk where the infamous evacuation of 328,000 men from the beaches in 1940 took place. We also visited the V for Vengeance weapons factory that was centre to the Nazi attempt to change the direction of the war in the final year. One of the key protagonists at La Couple where the V2 weapons were built was Von Braun, who saw his work on weapons as a stepping stone to space travel. Later, he was central to the US space program which put a man on the moon. On Day 2, we visited the First World sites in Belgium and on Day 3 in France. The weather was kind for the most part. The students engaged strongly with the material. The cemeteries, immaculately maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, always have such a powerful impact particularly as adolescent emotional intelligence develops. The weather and the time of year make such an impact on this trip. We have run this trip in March, June and now October. When the weather is bleak, it increases the empathy with those who lived in the trenches. June and October share the fact that the trees are in leaf and there are flowers throughout the graveyards. As nature has slowly retaken the war-torn landscape, a process of healing continues. When the light breaks through the rain clouds and illuminate the white of the head stones, no-one but those of the hardest heart could not fail to be touched. On Day 2, we visited Tyne Cot cemetery on the slopes outside Passchendaele, famous for the bloodshed of the Third Battle of Ypres. Over 8000 of the 12000 graves commemorate ‘a solder of the Great War known unto God’. On the backwall are the names of the men who have no known grave. Nearly 65% of the dead were due to Artillery and at Passchendaele the soldiers had to contend with the mud too. Through Flanders there are great examples of provocative art. At the Passchendaele memorial museum there was a work of art called Falls the Shadow. This was made by the New Zealand artist Helen Pollock, whose father fought in the First World War. She made it with clay from Zonnebeke and New Zealand. It depicts arms reaching up as if being consumed by the earth. Following Tyne Cot, we visited the German cemetery at Langemarck. There are only four German cemeteries in Belgium compared with 158 British and Commonwealth. The German sites are much smaller but much fuller. They provide a powerful comparison and reflect how nations manage their collective memories whether as celebrating the sacrifice of the glorious dead or hiding the dead away so as not to be reminded of their past folly. The students were then able to get their feet wet exploring the trenches and tunnels at Sanctuary Wood. This was followed by the museums of Flanders Fields in the former cloth hall in Ypres and the Passchendaele memorial museum. Many of the students commented on how great these visits were. The day was rounded off with the silence at the Menin Gate. A place where the two minutes silence is held every night at 8pm since the construction of the memorial in 1928. Each evening there is a different kind of remembrance experience. On Friday night soldiers of the commonwealth/ empire performed on the steel drums ‘I vow to thee my country’, a uniquely special moment. Our final day was spent visiting sites in France. These included the Lochnager crater – 100 metres across and 30 metres deep formed by a subterranean British mine under the German position on the Somme. We then visited Beaumont Hamel with the preserved trenches of the Newfoundland soldiers. This site provides a complete experience, with both the Allied and German shell pock marked positions visible and the area of No-man’s land to be covered. This site creates a real sense of context. As with the other sites, nature has a way of easing the soul. Scampering around the trees that grow amongst the support trenches were dozens of red squirrels. Within sight of Beaumont Hamel is the memorial at Thiepval that commemorates the 72,000 missing of the Somme. This magnificent site was designed by the Surrey architect Edwin Lutyens. His arts and craft style were often adapted to suit the contemporary. Famous not only for the striking Thiepval but also the Cenotaph memorial in London, Lutyens vision has become synonymous with remembrance. We finished the day with a visit to Vimy Ridge. This position saw no mans land shrink to less than fifty metres in places. Like Beaumont Hamel, this site provides a chance to see the whole of a section of the western front. By positioning students in both the Allied and German positions at Vimy, they were able to see just how intermit the war became. The day closed with a visit to the Canadian memorial at Vimy. Its giant white statues set against an azure blue sky provided the opportunity to reflect and consider whether the symbolic figures of Peace, Justice, Truth, Knowledge, Gallantry, Sympathy and the largest figure, a mourning figure known as Canada Bereft carved from a single 30‑tonne block, would be content with the world of today that their youth fought so hard to defend.
We have had a fabulous first half term in the boarding houses. This started with a fun boarder’s weekend which included a silent disco, a trip to Brighton and a range of onsite activities from outdoor ed, to art, pool games, archery and much more. There has been a lot of activities on offer mid-week over the past six weeks and many students have welcomed and committed to a number of these. We have had sports half fun, circuits, open gym, karaoke, Esports, movie nights, open art centre, quizzes and much more. The sixth form also enjoyed their first social events night of the year, where everyone made a real effort with costumes. We will continue to be creative and offer more fun activities for our students to enjoy. At the weekends we have had several new trips and activities mixed with some more familiar ones. Friday night we have had baking, a who dunnit murder mystery, an escape room, and a trip to Thorpe Park for Fright Night. On a Saturday boarders have been to the Southbank and Borough market in London, a vintage sale in Guildford (as requested), Top Golf and The Shed. Sundays take a slightly slower pace with a leisurely breakfast in the house followed by a brunch at 11am. After brunch we have continued with our weekly trip to Sainsburys as requested by students and offered some on site activities including time in the pool, the gym, and the arts centre.
Following the success of running this last year, GCSE and A Level Computer Science students have once again entered the CyberCenturion competition. This year, the Year 13s were determined to better their score from last year but hot on their heels are two teams made up of Year 9, 10 and 11 students. The competition is a national cyber education initiative for 12-18 year-old students. The program is designed to excite, educate and motivate students to pursue further education and careers in STEM and cybersecurity, which helps to build a diverse talent pool to supply the UK’s workforce needs. The Year 13s finished round one in a strong position as the first team to reach the maximum points of 200. This will put them as firm contenders for a place in the finals which take place in 2024. The other two teams are progressing well and are learning lots of new skills in the process. To find out more about this competition contact Sarah Cull.
GARDENING N-3 COURTYARD
You may have noticed that the vegetable beds have a new home 😊 They have been moved to the courtyard so that N-3 can all help to create a garden of both vegetables and flowers. Each class will have a chance to plant something and take some responsibility for caring for it throughout the year. The hope is that the garden will develop into a school community project that the children can be proud of and maybe have some produce to sell back to others. The money made will be used to purchase seeds for the next growing season, creating a circular economy and providing some fresh vegetables for anybody who visits our school. So far Yr 2 have done an amazing job moving most of the compost from the walnut garden into the beds. Wilf then helped Judith to plant the garlic that will be ready to harvest in June. This week Yr 1 are planting autumn broad beans, again, ready to harvest in May of next year. Nursery are taking responsibility for the sweet peas to give them a head start so that they are ready to grow when the weather warms up. Donations of compost would always be gratefully received (I’m informed that Homebase have a good deal at the moment) the bags can be left in the N-3 courtyard. Watch this space for updates on progress 😊
PUMPKIN CARVING AND EXPLODING A LEVEL CHEMISTS
Before half-term, it was the yearly exploding pumpkin demonstration, an early celebration of Halloween. The Year 12 chemists enjoyed carving the pumpkin and then enjoyed learning about the chemistry behind the explosion, calcium carbide reacting with water to produce ethyne gas. Before finally watched the pumpkin "self-carve"!
SIXTH FORM ART TRIP TO TATE MODERN
Year 12 and 13 creative arts students had an inspirational visual research day out to the Tate Modern. The Turbine Hall temporary exhibition by Ei Anatsui Behind the Red Moon made from metal recycled drink cans and bottle tops sourced from Nigeria, is a statement about the Slave trade. This artwork made a dramatic entrance and proved popular to both staff and students. Despite a rather wet walk along the South Bank all students had fun and came back with full camera rolls and sketches of potential source material.
GCSE SET DANCE WORKSHOP
GCSE dancers had the opportunity to learn the examined set phrases through an amazing practical workshop run by Juka Dance
Some of our students and teachers headed across the Channel to Paris. They had a whirlwind few days visiting Montmartre, Pere Lachaise Cemetary, Eiffel Tower, Parc Asterix, Trocodero, Champs d’Élysée, L’Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and Versailles - among other sites.
YEAR 4 TRIP
On Monday Year 4 set off to Winchester to take part in an immersive experience called 878 AD. The children were split into three groups and dressed in tabards. We started with a film that set the scene and magically opened into a space where we were met by two Anglo-Saxons. We were set challenges and tasks that included bartering in the marketplace, solving riddles, finding runes and preparing for battle. After lunch, which we ate sat in the sunshine outside Winchester Cathedral, we headed for the museum and explored clothing, jewellery and games. What a great day!
FOF JS HALLOWEEN AND YEAR 7 DISCO
Before half term the Junior School wound their way round a variety of Halloween stalls: from a pumpkin patch, mummy masquerade, witch's cauldron, ghostly apple bobbing and monster mash to potion tasting and a dracula doughnut challenge. They also all headed off to the ballroom for a disco with the brilliant DJ Lee. After which the Y7s took over the ballroom for their own Autumn Disco. A great opportunity to let their hair down and dance along to DJ Lee's well chosen tunes.
U15 v Winchester College
The U15s made the journey down to Winchester College on Tuesday afternoon. The surroundings were impressive and the pitch was great, which made for a brilliant football match. The boys made a quick start and quickly found their rhythm, passing the ball around Winchester and creating and string of dangerous attacks. In defence, Leo and Ollie led the line brilliantly, along with Harry in goal to frustrate the opposition and keep a clean sheet. Zach was deadly in front of goal and scored 4 goals to take the result beyond our opponents in a convincing victory.
U13 Lancing College 6-a-side tournament
The U13s battled the elements as they arrived at Lancing on the hill, in the wind and rain. This didn’t dampen their spirits as they were all up for the tournament. The boys played five matches in a league format, the toughest of which came in the first two games against Aldro and Bede’s. In both the boys controlled the tempo and passed the ball brilliantly but were unable to create the cutting edge and lost 1-0 in both. The boys faired better in the next game taking a point against Westbourne after battling hard. The penultimate game saw us take on the overall winners Buckswood who were a really impressive team, with some very technical players and unfortunately the opposition were too strong. The team saved the best performance until last beating Lancing prep 2-0 in a great all round display, Alfie scoring both goals. The team finished outside the top 2 so didn’t make the final but should be proud of their efforts in an incredibly tough tournament.
The U9s came up against a strong St Hillary’s team on Thursday afternoon. The opposition were physically very strong but also passed the ball well, so Frensham were up against it. Despite this, every player gave 100% effort and worked so hard of and on the ball. Lex scored our two goals of the match with some nice finishing but the opposition were clinical and won the game. Well done to all.
Under 15s Netball v Tormead
It was a superb game for our U15's against Tormead school today. For the first two quarters, it was goal for goal. Frensham played strongly from end to end but lacked some discipline at times. Tormead were controlled and measured in their play and were quick to turn any of our mistakes to their advantage. In the third quarter, Frensham grew a bit tired from the pressure and strength of the Tormead side. It went from a 12-12 scoreline to a 23-16 lead for Tormead. Frensham regrouped and reacted to their changes. We spoke about giving 100%. With a shortened fourth quarter, it was always going to be tough, but the girls dug deep! The final score was 23-21 to Tormead but the girls should be really proud of an outstanding performance. Players of the match were Cydney and Sophie. A special mention however, should go to Jemima and Georgia who were simply amazing and have a very bright future in netball ahead of them. well done girls, I was super proud of you all today!
Under 15s B Football v More House
The U15B made the short trip to More House on Tuesday. A sloped pitch, end-to-end, with large patches of mud, and covered in leaves and sticks from the overhanging trees made for an interesting playing surface but the boys persevered in a very back and forth match. Playing up the hill, we were up against it in the first half, struggling to sustain any attacks with the Frensham bar and posts being struck on several occasions. The Frensham goal was leading a charmed life with keeper Milo and the goalframe doing all they could to keep us in the game. Two scrappy goals right before half-time were unfortunate, but we’d now have the slope and wind in the second half. A big squad meant that changes were made throughout the game to keep everyone fresh. The team talk at the break focused on using our wingers to progress the ball up the pitch who could cross into our strikers. The tables now turned and it was Frensham who were peppering the More House with shots. A fine counterattacking goal from Talha, started by Seb, was sandwiched between two goals conceded to finish with a final score of 4-1 to More House. Man of the Match was Max, who stepped in at left back multiple times to break up attacks and set up our own counters.
Under 15s Girls Football v Bedales (ISFA Shield)
The under 15s girls played an outstanding game against Bedales. The girls were quite enthusiastic for the first ten minutes of this game which led to frantic, scrappy end to end start to the match. Jamie in goal making a few fine saves to ensure no goals were leaked during this time. However, as the girls settled down, gained some composure on the ball, some positional structure the girls gained control of the game and benefit from this. A great goal from Jess mid way through the first half really settled the team and from this point on began to dominate going forward. Jemima and Freya often linking up well to get the ball forward quickly. Holly double the lead taking advantage of quick counter attack. A reminder that Bedales still posed a threat when they pulled a goal back to make in 2-1. The girls kicked on were peppering the goal but couldn’t quite find the net to make the game a little more comfortable. Until a hand ball gave us a penalty which Matilda calmly smashed into the top corner. A second goal for Holly in the closing stages secured a 4-1 win and the girls progress into the next round of the ISFA National knock out competition. Well done girls.
HART JUNIOR ARTS & SPORTS AWARD
Raff in Year 10 won an award at the Hart Youth Achievement Awards at Hart District Council. He won the Junior Arts & Sports Awards for his achievements in ballet & dance and inspiring other boys to get into ballet. It was a lovely evening full of inspiring & deserving young people. Well done Raff!
