What the school says...

Frensham Heights is a highly distinctive school in a world of educational conformity. We have developed from the progressive school movement and are acknowledged as one of the leading liberal schools in the country. Our belief is in individuality, creativity in all areas and that the best form of competition is with one's self.

Special Education Needs

Frensham Heights provides group lessons from Year 1 for those considered to have mild learning difficulties. These lessons not only offer support but enable the teacher to monitor individual progress. From Year 7 the school uses a diagnostic test to assess the learning needs of all pupils and this is then influential on how lessons are planned and how those with IEPs are managed. Frensham Heights does not have a Special Needs Unit. Our provision is managed by a Head of Learning Support working with a team of peripatetic specialist teachers who provide support on a one-to-one basis, but this is charged separately.
