Hi Poppy.

Where they teach only ten letters of the alphabet (4) -T-N ???? eton

This is 'e' to 'n' (10 letters of the alphabet).

Hi again.

Frank is no writer (4) --E- ???? open

This is 'o' + 'pen' ('open'=frank; 'o'=zero=no; 'pen'=writer).

Hi again.

Trial run in the theatre (4) --A- ???? heat

A 'heat' is a trial run in (e.g.) athletics. 'heat' also appears in the word 'theatre'.

Hi again.

A base for the weaver (6) --T---.

If the 't' wasn't there, I'd say that the answer might be 'trivet' which has the double meaning of a fireside/tabletop stand and also a weaver's knife.
