Our belief in and commitment to activities outside the classroom will, inevitably, lead to further success within it – which is why Frensham has always respected the importance of sport and insisted on equal status for Outdoor Education.

Our PE and games programme is broad and exciting, even for our youngest students. PE is compulsory and is taught across the school by dedicated teachers. The syllabus includes traditional games such as cricket, tennis, rounders, football, hockey, swimming, athletics and netball as well as the more alternative sports including karate, fencing and parkour. We aim to provide sport for all regardless of ability and to motivate students to be active and healthy long into adulthood.

Sporting fixtures are arranged with other schools from Year 3 upwards. The aim is to make sport fun so the emphasis is on having a go and building skills through games play, structured practices and, for those who enjoy them, matches.

Our Outdoor Education programme involves a degree of calculated risk, not just for the sake of it but to develop confidence, teamwork and responsibility. The adventures on offer are carefully chosen, meticulously prepared and age appropriate. What makes Outdoor Education so special is that with real adventure the unexpected will always happen and it is in dealing with it that students discover their true strengths and exceed their personal limits.

For Junior School students, the Outdoor Education programme begins with Forest Classes, where even the youngest can enjoy the freedom to explore, to investigate, to experience and to take small but significant risks that help them grow into curious and self-aware adults.
