I AM mmm1 -Below--
MY GIRL has now LEFT FREWEN As she refused to attend in 2016 due to SEVERE Bullying Being ignored.
THE SCHOOL has changed HEAD and after SEPT 2014 it as all changed. SO MY previous great review NO Longer applies as this school has driven my daughter to school refusal and self harm. This is down to failure to give therapy and any counselling by NEW principal and some great teachers leaving.

MY daughter started just before xmas 2012 at Frewen college in year 7.
She has settled in well. It is slightly difficult as the girls are few in number as yet ( used to be boys only school).
The teachers are great at helping the children fit in and it is relaxed and friendly. My daughter has social skills problems and can misunderstand and even with this and poor self esteem she is thriving.
I would definately recommend and i fought for funding for the place through tribunal. Cannot imagine how awful it would have been to send her to large mainstream. In just a few weeks people are noticing she is growing in confidence. smile

Also look at www.northease.co.uk school just outside Lewes. My baby brother went there and absolutely loved it. Opened up his eyes to what he was capable of instead of what he wasn't

I live near it and have a very dyslexic dAughter but know nothing about it! How old is tour child? Sevenoaks Prep has a fantastic cutting edge Dyslexia Programme.

My son is in Year 7 at Frewen and has been at the school since 2008. We have been absolutely delighted with the school and our son has made great progress. Prior to Frewen he was in mainstream with a statement and had become a school refuser. His self esteem and confidence have grown so much and he now enjoys school. Have a look at their website www.frewencollege.co.uk. There are details on there of their open morning. I would recommend a visit. Hope that helps.
