Welcome to Sir Thomas Fremantle Secondary School
STFS is the newest secondary school in north Buckinghamshire. We opened in September 2013; full in Year 7 with four teaching groups and one in Year 8. In January 2014 we admited an additional Year 8 teaching group.
Year 7 applications are handled through Buckinghamshire School Admissions and data shows that we are the first choice for many local parents.
Sir Thomas Fremantle adds to the secondary school choice for the children and parents of North Buckinghamshire. We are a small, non-selective and inclusive local school where the aim is to release the potential of each individual child through a curriculum which, in tandem with high expectations for commitment to academic study, builds confidence and self-esteem through diverse opportunities to participate in drama, music, sport and art. A strong sense of community and parental engagement to support their child’s education will be key contributors to each student’s success. There is a real focus on the development of the whole-child and our extended school day (we finish at 4.30pm) is central to this aim.
The inspiration to set up a free school in the Winslow area came from a steering group of local parents, teachers and education professionals motivated by a passion for making a positive contribution towards the future education provision for children within the North Buckinghamshire community.
