Welcome to Frensham Heights!

Frensham Heights is a distinctive school built on an ethos of mutual respect. There is a certain magic in the air which comes from the strong relationships and acceptance of individuality.

A Little bit about our approach to Teaching & Learning

We aim high for all our students. We look beyond exams to instill life skills.

Learning at Frensham is unique and goes beyond what happens in the classroom. However, when we do focus on academic learning, there are some exciting programmes that our students become part of to equip them with the tools they need to take control of their own learning. They can achieve their academic potential and much more. We teach them the skills to learn. 

We often assume that students innately know how to learn, of course this is not true and often this assumption can lead to unobtainable expectations and underachievement. At Frensham, we know that it is not enough to be good at taking exams, regurgitating information, churning out papers. We need to be able to think like learners, life-long learners to go beyond exams. 

Each student is different, learns differently. We aim to provide each of them with learning skills and practices that will set them on their individual paths to great careers and, more importantly, great lives

Next Steps

Choosing and joining a school can be a really daunting and overwhelming time. We know Frensham isn’t quite like other schools, we’re really proud to be different. But how can you be sure we’re right for your child particularly in the current situation when we sadly can’t welcome you to visit us in person?

The answer is to please get in touch and let us guide you through our admissions process. From virtual open mornings to personalised virtual tours and assessments as well as conversations with the teaching team, we have adapted our admissions to ensure you are still able to truly understand what makes Frensham different and special.

If you are looking for a place at Frensham from September 2021, we hope we will be able to reintroduce elements of our face to face assessment process. Please take a look at our Admissions page to find out more.

If you’re considering Frensham for your child, please get in touch with Emma at [email protected].  We look forward to hearing from you!
