The Frensham Houses are where the girls sleep, study, and spend time relaxing. Each House has its own character and charm to make the girls feel right at home.
Hartfield HouseRenovated extensively in 2006, Hartfield House provides shared bedroom-style accommodation for students in Years 7-9 and twin-bed studio accommodation for students in Year 10. Built in 1934 the House is named after Margaret Hartfield, a devoted teacher of Music and German.
Kennedy HouseKennedy House is the second of the two junior boarding houses for students in Years 7-10. Opened in 1956, Kennedy became the second house built in the Holt, and is named in honour of Frances Kennedy, Miss West’s sister, who taught a number of subjects in the early years of Frensham.
Bryant McCarthy HouseA contemporary, state-of-the-art boarding facility for senior students, Bryant McCarthy House features modern single and twin bed-studies, a reception area, a large, light-filled Common Room and accommodation for staff. The House is named after Phyllis Bryant, Frensham’s second Headmistress from 1938 to 1965, and in honour of the McCarthy family, who were great patrons of the School.
