It is with real pride that I welcome you to Friesland School as the Headteacher. Friesland is a friendly and thriving community where high expectations are integral to our ethos, as we have a genuine belief that all young people can be successful academically, and as lifelong learners.

Friesland is a school where we truly believe in the transformative power of education to shape the lives of young people. Our exceptional staff work tirelessly to ensure that all of our students experience a rich and varied curriculum, both in and out of the classroom. Lessons at Friesland are engaging, innovative and enjoyable, delivered by our dedicated and experienced team of teachers alongside our highly skilled support team.

At Friesland we are incredibly proud of the guidance and support we offer our students. Whilst academic results are important, they are certainly not our sole purpose. Friesland prepares young people for life beyond school, with a caring and comprehensive support package for all of our learners from Year 7 onwards. There are many ways to measure success, at the end of your school career, and we ensure that every individual has the support and guidance they need to strive for that success.

Friesland is a community built on respect, where young people thrive and mature into happy and successful young adults. Our students enjoy both exceptional teaching across a genuinely broad curriculum and a vibrant and varied extra-curricular programme. I urge you to explore our website, either as a current or prospective student or parent, as it is a vital source of information and a genuine window into our school.
