Frensham Heights was founded in 1925 as part of the Progressive School Movement. From the outset, the culture was co-educational, non-competitive, non-religious, seeking to educate through cooperation rather than coercion. Students had a voice on all issues: dress, activities, rules... Wonderfully, the Head would take staff out for the day and ‘leave the keys’ with the students as an act of trust. We still trust our students, although times have changed and we wouldn’t go quite that far now!
