Learn, lead and make a difference
Welcome to City of London Freemen's School. We are an independent co-educational school for 7-18 year olds in the heart of Surrey, with boarding for students aged 13 and above.
We want our children to learn, to lead and to make a difference. Our students achieve remarkable academic success, but when you also consider their contributions to the sporting, musical, dramatic and social side of the School, you get a picture of genuinely well-rounded young people, which is what a Freemen’s education is all about. Why not come and visit us to discover more about life at Freemen's? This video will give you a taste of who we are:
WE LOVE BOARDING
The Boarding House is a home-from-home for our pupils. It provides a safe, happy, family-like environment in which pupils and staff work together to promote a positive and supportive atmosphere which encourages success in all aspects of school life.
Freemen’s provides a small, happy boarding environment in which the 60 boarding pupils work together and support each other. Because numbers are small, staff know the pupils well and every boarding house pupil benefits from individual attention and care. It allows for full integration with day pupils, some of whom will join the Boarding house for dinner and prep in the evenings or invite boarder friends home for weekends.
We are an academically selective school, but we are looking for more than good grades. Exam results are only part of the story. Life at Freemen's is also about the accomplishments your child will make in sport, drama, music and socially, as well as their contributions to the wider community.
There are four main points of entry into Freemen's each September:
We will consider applications for other years if we have space. We don't usually accept new starters during the academic year, but it is always worth talking to us.
We know it is not easy choosing a school for your child, so we are here to guide you every step of the way as you look to join the Freemen's family.
