Head’s Welcome

Mr Geoff Marsh, Head of Frensham & Head of Frensham Schools

Welcome to Frensham

Thank you for considering Frensham for your daughter.

Established by Winifred West in 1913, Frensham is one of Australia's most respected boarding and day schools for girls. Frensham inspires its students to be critical, ethical and flexible thinkers, equipped to be future leaders in a complex and rapidly changing world.

Frensham is an outward-looking and forward-thinking school. Our passionate and dedicated staff work as a highly professional team that takes the time to consider and support each girl’s individual learning, growth and development as independent, empowered young people. Our belief is that students rise to the intellectual life around them, which creates a culture designed to inspire intellectual and emotional growth and maturity, helping every student to thrive.

In a stimulating living and learning environment surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty, girls are challenged and supported to develop the skills and the motivation to contribute positively to their local and global community. They are taught to value kindness, resilience, empathy and compassion, and to carry these attributes with them for life, alongside the School’s core values.

Lifelong friendships are formed through living and learning in residence, and girls are inspired and supported to work together to embrace and overcome challenges, and to celebrate each other’s achievements. This sense of community shapes the character of the School and of our students. Success is measured in the way girls carry themselves beyond school – with a confident, courageous and generous spirit.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Frensham to explore the possibilities for your daughter. 

Geoff Marsh
Head of Frensham
