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. We can't truly replicate that virtually, but we hope that this collection of videos, panels and other resources will give you a strong insight into what makes our school different.
Please scroll down to find videos and resources or use the links on the right to have a look around. Here’s our suggested route below.

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
