SIXTH FORM

Frensham Sixth Form offers the best of both worlds with the independence of a college mixed with the facilities and diverse extracurricular opportunities of a wider school community. Our more informal setting and smaller class sizes allow our students and teachers to really get to know one another - literally on a first name basis. Teachers can then adapt their lessons to the personalities and interests in front of them allowing for a bespoke education for all.

LIFE AT FRENSHAM SIXTH FORM

Frensham Sixth Form life centres around our student hub Roberts House. It is a home from home where students can personalise their study rooms; enjoy each other’s company in our multiple common rooms and make a well-deserved hot drink and slice of toast in one of our kitchens. Students are welcomed into Roberts House by our dedicated housemother, Sarah, whose warm and caring nature sets a tone of positivity and support. Hannah, our Head of Sixth Form, has her office in Roberts House and the door is always open to students for anything from UCAS mentoring sessions to helping out with day to day academic or pastoral challenges. 

Unlike Sixth Form colleges, students are welcome to stay onsite throughout the school day and can get their important independent study done within the school working hours. Students can also choose to stay on beyond the school day for events such as movie nights, plays, enrichment events and our ever popular social events nights. Being able to house all our Sixth Form in one space gives us a family atmosphere punctuated by laughter and spirited discussions, where the student voice is at the centre of our community. 

Listen to Hannah, our Head of Sixth Form, and Alison, our Deputy Head of Sixth Form, talk about what makes Frensham Sixth Form different.

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT TO A SIXTH FORM COLLEGE?

Hearing directly from students and teachers can really shed a light on day to day life so we asked some of our amazing Sixth Form students and teachers to help us out with these two insightful videos.

Listen to three current Sixth Formers talk about what makes Frensham Sixth Form different.
