A message from the Director of Support for Learning
If your child has had a previous or current specialist teacher, speech and language therapist or occupational therapist’s report, can you please ensure that we have this information in the Support for Learning Department. Equally, I would be grateful if you could please send in a copy of any Educational Psychologist’s report that you may have for your child. These reports are vital in informing class and subject teachers of relevant needs.

A message from the Frensham Heights Library
Find amazing people: come to the library. This busy environment has a full-time librarian and is found in a light and airy skylit, recently refurbished gable space of Flottage. The reading club meets here weekly and the rooms are frequently used for teaching. The walls are lined with nearly 14,000 books, magazines and DVD’s, with a strong bias towards Young Adult Fiction. There are also digital resources and ebooks available.
Visitors can sink in to the leather armchairs or sofa or make use of the seating/workspace for 34, including networked workstations. Wifi is available throughout. Students and staff can also make use of the mini café and the enquiry station where anyone can search the web-based library management system.

A message from the Head of Boarding
Depending on availability, day students in Years 7-9 can board up to a total number of nights equivalent to two nights per week for that specific term (so 16 nights in a term of eight weeks). The same applies to day students in Years 10–13 but for up to the equivalent of one night a week (so eight nights in a term of eight weeks). The occasional boarding rate is £50 per night.
We also offer a two week boarding experience to day students once in their time at the school. The cost for this is £300.
Becks Scullion, Head of Boarding
