We are very proud to have a strong, involved Board of Governors who are dedicated to upholding the ethos of the school and work selflessly with the leadership teams to ensure that the school remains distinct and true to its founding principles. Many have children who have studied at Frensham Heights and some are Old Frenshamians themselves. They all bring with them their own expertise, experience and passion for our unique school ethos.
