Frewen College

Frewen College


Frewen was called Brickwall House, it is a school for dyslexic childrenIt is always very encouraging to receive positive feedback. Internally we always focus on what we need to improve, so it can be easy to lose sight of what we are doing right! Here is just a small selection of comments from the past few months.


What have you done to my son!!! We left him with you at the beginning of September, he was extremely negative and downbeat as to his abilities and intelligence. This week at Exeat after just three weeks we had our dear R back, not only physically but his character, his temperament, his attitude, his positivity. It was an absolute delight to see his confidence bouncing back. He's loving everything about Frewen and his new found abilities. You have given him hope that he does have a bright future and can be Master of his destiny.

R seems to be having a wonderful time with you ...... in fact the changes we and our family have observed in him, even in the short time he has been with you, have been nothing less than miraculous, and we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We can't believe the difference in our daughter in just a few weeks. It's been absolutely phenomenal, we can't thank your staff enough.

“When he started at Frewen, he had very low self-esteem. Over the time he has been at the school I have seen a gradual and miraculous change.”
