Frewen College

Frewen is a Finalist in the ISA School Awards for Senior School Of The Year

Frewen College has become a finalist in the Independent School Association (ISA) Awards. The school is a finalist in two categories ISA Award for Outstanding Provision for Learning Support; and, ISA Senior School of the Year Award.

Founded in 1878, the Independent Schools Association is one of the oldest of the independent schools’ organisations. The ISA Awards happen annually and recognise the breadth of quality and provision in independent education across the country.

Mr Goodman, Principal of Frewen College, said: “We are delighted to be in the top three national finalists for two categories, and to have our work with dyslexic students recognised. The ISA Senior School of the Year Award is for all Senior Schools, not just special schools, and is based on student progress. Of course, at Frewen, students typically join us several years behind where they should be, then catch up, and then often exceed expectations - which means their progress is exceptional.” Mr Goodman continued: “It is a testimony to all the hard work that goes on, day after day, to ensure that our students, all of whom are dyslexic, can make progress and achieve success.”

Frewen welcomes students of all abilities, all of whom have dyslexia.  In 2021 the school celebrated the seventh consecutive year of record exam results. ‘Pupil progress’ and ‘achievement’ have continued to increase year-on-year over the last seven years.

Although Frewen is an independent school with privately funded students, many of Frewen’s students are also funded by Local Authorities through an Education Health & Care Plan (EHCP).

Frewen College’s roots go back over 100 years making it one of the oldest dyslexia schools in the country. If you would like to know more about Frewen College, you can come along to one of our Virtual Open Mornings on 11th and 12th October.
