Parents Say ‘…’

Parents' Perspectives

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you can make, and we are always interested to know what parents are looking for in a school.

Here are some of reasons parents have chosen Frensham for their daughter:

  • Character and leadership development
  • Values and culture of the school
  • Academic excellence
  • Teacher quality
  • High expectation of students
  • Fitness and wellbeing
  • Personalised approach

Above all, parents tell us that it is the overwhelming recommendations from students and parents past and present that encourage them on the merits of a Frensham education.

My daughter was really impressed by the facilities and beauty of the school, the friendliness and courtesy of the girls who gave them a tour, the confidence and poise of Year 7 girls who performed today, having been at school for five weeks. I am now fully confident about my daughter boarding from Year 7.

It was wonderful to see the wonderful resources and opportunities you offer your students. However, the ‘stand out’ was the school tour by two wonderful, well-mannered and high-spirited students. The girls were generous with their time, and they were so kind and welcoming to Sarah. My husband and I both felt that their representation of your school was remarkable and left us with a wonderful impression of what Frensham has to offer our daughter.

Frensham is a unique and beautiful school (no, not School – family!) Frensham is an exceptional and unequalled life experience for any young woman, bringing out the best in each individual personality, as well as achieving outstanding academic, sporting and cultural results. I cannot sing the School’s praises loud enough. You have built a wonderful team.Parent of a Year 12 student
My daughter has enjoyed every single day at her new school and I see a young woman who is thriving in a rigorous, supportive educational environment. She is supported in every way by an incredibly dedicated and talented staff, and enjoys wonderful friendships with a lovely group of girls. I cannot thank you enough for the work that you do and for the opportunities that I had never dreamed would be available to my daughter.Parent of a Year 11 student
…we both acknowledge much of our daughter’s tertiary education success is due to the academic education and social justice foundation established at Frensham. We are extremely grateful for the contribution Frensham made in supporting her... so would like to take this opportunity to say thank you...Parent of former student
