Frensham is an outward-looking, forward-thinking boarding school that provides a rigorous and personalised academic programme, meaningful, lifelong and valued connections. In an inspiring culture and spectacular living and learning environment, girls are challenged and supported to develop the skills and willingness to make a difference in the world.

Founded in 1913, and located in Mittagong in the Southern Highlands of NSW on 140 hectares, Frensham is the largest boarding School for girls in Australia. Parents’ top reasons for enrolling their daughters at Frensham are:

  • Values and culture of the school;
  • Academic standards;
  • Character/leadership development;
  • Teacher quality;
  • High expectation of students;
  • Fitness and wellbeing focus.

Leading in STEM education (Frensham’s interpretation including an additional focus on the Arts and Music – STEAMm), the academic programme is enhanced by a rich Extra Subjects and Co-curricular programme and the leadership imperative is core to the experience for every girl.
