A look at recent results and class composition

Results

At Frensham Heights results across every subject are treated equally. We celebrate success in a wider context whether it’s strong GCSE or A-Levels results or success on a less traditionally academic pathway. Students include the highly academic who achieve top grades across the board, students who are outstanding musicians, artists, actors and dancers – not to mention the many who fall across both sides. As you will see from the charts, our results remain consistent year by year.

Class Sizes

We have one class per year group from Nursery up to Year 4 with small numbers to ensure individual attention. This splits into two classes per year group in Years 5 and 6, with up to 16 per class.

In Years 7 and 8, there are usually three tutor groups per year with 16 or 18 students in each. In Year 9, there are four tutor groups. The GCSE and A Level class sizes vary depending on the popularity of student subject choices.

Mixed-Ability Classes

Up to Year 9, all classes are intentionally mixed-ability, which benefits everyone. Students are encouraged to work together which improves the attainment of less able students whilst simultaneously deepening the understanding of those who are more able.
