Mission Statement and Guiding Values

We commit to developing Frensham Schools* as a pre-eminent educational community, founded on Christian principles, renowned for its unique combination of values which focus on:

  • health and happiness – providing a caring and supportive environment in beautiful surroundings close to nature, and encouraging a sense of wellbeing through teamwork, friendship, self-management and tolerant beliefs
  • unselfish pursuit of excellence – exceeding what would otherwise be possible in terms of development, contribution, achievement and leadership, across the totality of the educational experience
  • individual growth – challenging and inspiring each member of the Frensham Schools community to define, plan for, and work towards the achievement of personal goals with passion, resilience, and commitment
  • service to others – living the challenge of our founders, ‘In Love Serve One Another’, being active and compassionate in recognising the needs of others and responding with generosity, self-assurance, leadership by example, integrity and humility in all matters, in a global community
  • broad experience – recognising the need for multifaceted development of each individual, enhancing his or her intellectual, spiritual, aesthetic, social and physical powers, emphasising academic requirements and other long-term life skills
  • innovative and adaptive approaches – developing a spirit of enquiry and a love of learning, with a future focus and the capacity to discern, so that students and staff experience the adventure of experimentation and the excitement of breaking new ground
