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. In the second episode, we talk to Alison Bundy, Assistant Head of Sixth Form (Pastoral) and English Teacher here at Frensham Heights. We'd love it if you could share your career journey with the students via the My Journey podcast, please contact for more information!

This podcast should be of real interest to Years 10 and 11 as they consider what they would like to study at A-level. Here A-level teachers will be discussing some of the big ideas on their courses focusing on the subjects that are not available at GCSE – Film Studies, Sociology, Politics, Psychology, Economics and plenty more to follow. In our first episode, we talk to Charlie Bennett about Film Studies.



FOF Festive Collections
Waverley Family Centre- All next week- December 4th- December 8th

FOF have again partnered up with the Waverley Family Centre in order to show our support to local families this Christmas. We are collecting gifts for children that the centre can then wrap and hand-deliver to those families in need. If you would like to donate a new, unwrapped gift -perhaps matched to your child’s age, though the centre would welcome gifts for any children aged 0-15. We will have collections every morning next week. Collection points for your kind donations are the Drop off zone or the main car park. Thanks so much for your support!


One of the fundamental purposes of Friends of Frensham, as a parent association and registered Charity, is to raise funds that can be used for the benefit of the school. Our aim is to enable the school to pay for events, activities or equipment outside the core school budget with the objective of providing funds that will benefit & support the children across both the Junior & Senior School. Awards are granted throughout the year and FOF are delighted to say approval was given at the latest Board meeting for two awards. To enable Greenpower to purchase a branded gazebo that will be used to either shelter the students from the extreme sun / heat (such as at the lotus race) or provide cover from the storms throughout the season. Greenpower has been a huge success at Frensham over the past three seasons. It’s a brilliant ECA and one that impacts on many students that come through the years at Frensham. To enable the Junior School to create a special wellbeing hub in the 4-6 part of the JS by converting a group room space. The room would be for children who may be struggling emotionally at any point in the day, for ELSA Interventions and any other children who may need time and space and a calm environment to be in




Last week HH started to get ready for Christmas by making their own Christmas decorations which will be used to decorate the house this year. RH and MH will be catching up this week by starting on the house decorations. Esports was very popular last half term, so Tim offered another session last week which was once again very well attended across the houses. At the weekend RH had a wine tasting and cheese evening, which they all thoroughly enjoyed. MH and HH enjoyed a Friday night big screen movie. On Saturday we had a fabulous trip to Winter Wonderland, the skies were blue, and the sun was shining. A few of our students were very brave and went on some of the biggest rides at the fair. After Winter Wonderland we wondered over to Oxford street for some Christmas shopping and an opportunity to see the start of the Christmas lights coming on. For the more energetic amongst us there was a trip to Ninja Warrior on Sunday which tests many aspects of fitness. Our students certainly did a fantastic job on all the challenges put in front of them.


Last week's Morning Talk was a fascinating overview of Søren Kierkegaard, recognised as the father of existentialism, and a groundbreaking philosopher. His focus was the responsibility of the individual person to live a meaning and purposeful life based on original Christian values. In today’s world he would have been seen as an influencer and probably been actively communicating via social media, instead of walking the streets of Copenhagen talking to the people he met on the streets. Casper Yr 13, who is a direct descendant of Søren Kierkegaard, spoke on some of the key themes from Kierkegaard’s authorship such as Leap of Faith, Individuality and Subjectivity and The Three Stages of Life. The presentation was followed by a question and answer session where students asked many fascinating questions about Kierkegaard and his life.


Year 11 Geographers studied the economic, social and environmental impact of Gunwharf Quays on Monday as part of their fieldwork requirement for their GCSE Paper 3. Students collected primary data in the form of pedestrian counts, land use transects and environmental quality surveys alongside photographs to establish whether the regeneration has retained a sense of place. This week students will present their data and analysis their findings.


A level chemists set about making our festive chemistree. The students made a range of decorative flasks including blue copper sulphate, a variety of acid/alkalis and indicators, silver mirrors and golden rain to decorate the tree.


On Tuesday, Nursery and Reception went on another adventure, this time over to the kitchens where the wonderful Connor, our Head Chef, taught us all about pastry and how to make mince pies. We then had a go at making our own: rolling the dough; cutting out our shapes; adding the mincemeat; putting a top on; and adding the glaze and sugar as the finishing touches. They were delicious!


In today’s morning talk, Ben spoke to the senior students about why he is so excited and passionate about becoming the Head at Frensham. He talked about his own education and the influence that has had on him, both the positive and the negative, his aspirations for his own family at Frensham and some of the ideas he has for Frensham moving forward. It’s fair to say that animals played a starring role in his talk! It was wonderful to see the students engaging so warmly with him and asking lots of brilliant questions. Ben will be returning in January to join a Junior School Assembly. Thank you and well done to George Yr 11 who opened the Morning Talk with his stunning performance of Debussy’s Arabesque No.2.


23 6th Formers had a splendid time at the Winchester Christmas Market on Thursday afternoon. Hopefully buying some Christmas presents for parents. It was a real pleasure to spend the time with them, surrounded by the lights, little boutiques, interesting things to eat and the air thick with the smells of Christmas: roasting chestnuts and steaming mulled wine.


Each Wednesday some of the children in Year 7 and 8 give up part of their lunchtime to visit Brightwells Gostry Community Centre in Farnham and spend some time with the senior citizens who visit. The children bring some much loved energy and fun to the centre and the older people who are there to enable their families and carers to have some respite. I am always really proud of them and I think they get a lot from this too. This week they helped make Christmas decorations and put up the tree which really helped everyone to get into the Christmas spirit!


Thank you to everyone involved in last nights 'Winter Sharing Show'. It was a wonderful evening with an electric atmosphere! Thank you to the wonderful cast (of 150 students!!!) who shared some of their beautiful work from lessons and ECA's. To the staff who supported on the night and for all the masterminds behind the madness that is putting on a show! If you did enjoy last night, there is so much more from the Performing Arts coming your way! 'We Will Rock You' is next week with performances on the 7th, 8th and 9th of December at 7pm across each evening and a 14:30 matinee on the Saturday. Plus the wonderful junior school performances of Baubles and Cinderella Rockafella! Get your tickets now!

Year 4 planned a "Gaming" afternoon Tea where they chatted merrily and played board games and card games with local Farnham elderly residents, including one gentleman whose realtive had been a gardener at the school in year gone by and parents or one of our receptionsists! With help from a few older students, today, everyone was a winner as the piano, played, children sung, everyone chatted and delicious cakes and scones were eaten! Hi Lynn What a lovely afternoon! Thank you so much to you and everyone at Frensham Heights for the making the afternoon so special. All our ladies and gentlemen really enjoyed it and some have already been asking about the summer event and wanting to book. As word gets around how lovely it all was I’m sure I will be inundated with requests for the next one. The singers and pianists were excellent and all our people enjoyed playing games with the younger ones, what a great idea. We will look forward to seeing you at the lunch on 3rd December, as discussed please let Fiona know your numbers. Thank you again and best wishes.

Y10 have been learning about how oxygen and other nutrients are transported around their bodies, and all got stuck in to a heart dissection with great enthusiasm!


On Thursday, all the donations given by Frensham Heights were passed to the central sorting location for distribution. Your donations helped to give gifts to 523 children either in outreach services or refuge and 129 women. So 7SVC would like to say thank you all so much for your donations. We are super grateful for all donations we have received. All of the kids will be super delighted about the presents they will get this year and your donations have made a difference. Lola, Cess and G (7SVC)


Under 13s Football v Duke of Kent

The U13 football team hosted Duke of Kent for a brilliant afternoon of football on Wednesday. The opposition were a physical side and inside the first 10 minutes it was clear that they were going to press and harass Frensham. Frensham started slow and struggled with the press, however they dug in and things clicked and they played their brilliant passing brand of football that they’ve been showing all season. Frensham dominated the possession and create several chances which Alfie and Richie finished off to give Frensham a 2-0 victory. The opposition tried to fight back but Tomos pulled off a couple of brilliant saves and Harrison cleared off the line brilliantly after the forward rounded the keeper to save a sure goal. Well done all.

Under 15s Netball v Duke of Kent

Frensham's U15's put on another fantastic display of netball against the Duke of kent school this week. We took a while to warm up, with some erratic passes and loose balls which resulted in a number of turnovers. They picked it up though and with some tight defence and improved passing and movement as a team, the girls finished every quarter ahead. DOK worked hard though and fought back in the third quarter. Frensham responded with some small changes and they ran away with the win in the fourth. The final score was 25-15 to Frensham.

Under 12s Netball v Farnborough Hill

This game was always going to be a challenge for Frensham, against a strong school. Frensham worked hard throughout, with some amazing flying intercepts by Lila and Becky, which slowed down the Farnborough attack. Poppy worked tirelessly, moving the ball into the circle, resulting in a number of shots on goal by Tilly and herself. Anya moved well into space to bring the ball down the court with Lila. The defence triangle of Becky, Abi and Grace was a strong trio against a good Farnborough side. Overall, it was a good performance by all with some excellent elements of netball now being mastered. The score line did not match the efforts or the game itself. It was a 8-2 win for Farnborough on this occasion, but the whole team should be very proud of their performance.

Under 9s Netball vs Churcher's

What a great game for the U9s! A fresh but bright afternoon presented almost perfect playing conditions and every member of the team arrived enthusiastic. The girls were ready to put the skills they had learning in training to the test. The first quarter saw an early goal from Eleanor, thanks to some quick decisions and great passing up the court. The opposition managed to score their first goal just before the end of the quarter. In the second quarter, Frensham marked well and showed a strong defensive performance but unfortunately Churcher's made some great interceptions in our defensive third which allowed them to score two more goals, finishing at half time 3-1. The third quarter saw the team seeking out their players in a quicker fashion which allowed them to put the pressure on, leading to the team having time to create space and rush in for the ball. In the final quarter, Churcher's were quick to score, but Frensham were hot on their heels with a lovely goal from Amelia, finishing the game 4-2. The team were elated to have scored some goals and it was brilliant to see how they have progressed!

Under 10/11s Netball triangular v St Edmunds and Farlington

The U11 team had an excellent match against St Edmund's and Farlington. In cold conditions they moved the ball well and worked on some of the things that they have been working on in training. All the hard work paid off with some lovely through court play and 2 wins. Edith was selected as player of the match in the first game (3-1 win) with some solid defending and great interceptions. Ruby was selected as player of the match against Farlington for her supportive play on the edge of the circle. She worked really well with the 2 attackers getting the ball nearer the post to create better shooting opportunities - this paid off with another win (3-1) after going down 1-0. Well done to everyone who played. Some great results. The U10 team played their best game of the season in their games against both St Edmund's and Farlington. With only five players, substitutions was not an option and the girls took this in their stride. Rather than starting the game at a slow pace in the cold weather, the team started strong with all players keenly marking the opposition. The team created some really fluid game play that saw an early goal from Emma. Frensham defended well and made some great interceptions, but unfortunately St Eds managed to score 2 goals in our first game against them. Our second game, against Farlington, saw the positions change slightly and the team looked calm and collected on court. The girls showed textbook understanding of their recently learned skills of driving out and then in again to create space. This produced some quick and efficient passes, allowing two further goals from Emma, one goal from Charlotte and one from Amelia. Our final game was against St Ed's and the girls were really showing dominance on the court. They continued to create space and ample opportunities to make their way up court, seeing two final goals from Charlotte, who was also chosen as player of the match!

Under 18s Football v More House

An absolute classic for the Under 18s on Monday evening against local rivals More House. A close encounter throughout and one of small margins. The boys worked hard and had the edge in the first half, creating some good chances against a strong goalkeeper for More House. Curtis, Arlo and Luke combined well to create some half chances. We were comfortable at the back for the majority with Morley and Ben combining well. Until a classic counterattack goal from More house put them in front. Adnan injected some pace through the middle and James P and James V were both getting forward well. It looked like it was not meant to be for Frensham, and the game drew to a close until some last attacking play resulted in not one but two goals. Firstly, Arlo scored a great volley from a corner, in off the post and with minutes to spare Luke executed a great solo finish to win the game for Frensham. More house edged the first game a few weeks back 1-0 so will do everything we can to organise a trilogy match!

Under 14s Football Mayville Tournament

A chilly afternoon at Mayville on Tuesday but a great competition that Frensham were very competitive in. In out group with host Mayville, Meon Cross, More House and Boundary Oak. All the games were 7v7 and so close games on small pitches. Chances would be difficult to create and so the taking these when they arrived would be essential. Lots of good performance from Harry C in midfield, Negu in Defence and Zak at centre forward to name a couple. After the group stages we qualified for the quarter finals and were up against Boundary Oak A. This was our best performance by far and dominated from the first minuet and create chance after chance, the ball would just not drop in. As a result, the game went to penalties and unfortunately the boys lost 3-1 on penalties to not progress to the semi-finals.

Under 13s Football Mayville Tournament

The boys were a real credit to the school throughout the afternoon at Mayville in freezing conditions. In every game they worked incredibly hard defensively and also created opportunities going forward. We lost our first two group games by one goal to nil but then won our last group game 1 - 0 from a great strike by Leo who was superb all afternoon. This meant we had to play the winner of the other group in the quarter final. They were significantly bigger than us but we stuck to it and managed to take the game to penalties. Jack and Leo scored their penalties and Johnny in goal saved both opposition penalties which saw us get to the semi final. The same scenario played out in the semi but this time we lost on penalties. It was an amazing afternoon. A special mention for Johnny in goal who was outstanding all afternoon.

Under 11s Football v Duke of Kent

The U10 and 11 mixed team play against two Duke of Kent teams in a mini tournament. In the first game there was fantastic defensive play by Oscar in goal particularly as this is not his normal position. Brilliant defence by Angad and Crofton and superb link play by Max in midfield. Upfront Albie and Betty found the going tough to find scoring opportunities however never gave up. When called upon Ben was awesome in goal, Cassia was strong in defence and Lylee was excellent in a dual role of defence and midfield with Frensham coming up short 3-0 to the Duke of Kent team. In the second match Frensham played brilliantly with two goals from Albie and one from Betty to win 3-1 against the second Duke of Kent team, all the players mentioned above were exceptional in helping to create these goals to win the second match. On the other pitch, the first 10-mins was very even, with both sides battling it out. DOK managed to score on a counterattack. In reaction, Frensham had some chances from some quick link up between Louis and Rudy but neither were able to put the ball in the net. Frensham were punished for small errors in defence which resulted in 4 more DOK goals. Well played both sides!
