UK Girls Boarding School on the Surrey/Sussex Border
Farlington School is an independent day and boarding school for girls aged 3-18. Founded in 1896 Farlington occupies a beautiful 33-acre setting on the Surrey/Sussex border, approximately 20 minutes from Gatwick and one hour from Heathrow. There are attractive new buildings in addition to the original 17th-century mansion house. Farlington is a forward-looking school with a strong sense of tradition and achieved outstanding/excellent in every category in the ISI Inspection December 2010.
Pupils at Farlington are seen as unique and the school aims to foster individuality - they are happy, succeed and flourish. Whilst the emphasis is on educating the whole child, examination results are high. Pupils participate in a wide range of activities - three drama productions each year, a variety of choirs and musical groups as well as a full sports programme. In the Sixth Form girls take on further responsibilities, and in addition to their studies become involved in numerous activities aimed to both challenge and stretch them, preparing them for life beyond school.
There are 40 boarders in the small, happy, boarding community, which is run very much along family lines. This September has seen the opening of our new junior boarding house, ‘Fishponds’, a self-contained boarding house with a kitchen, living room and facilities for 12 Boarders ranging in age from 8 to 13 along with a residential Housemistress. It provides a home-away-from-home atmosphere for our British and international students. The girlsenjoy an imaginative range of weekly and weekend activities. In the evenings and at weekends, boarders are able to enjoy the School facilities, including the swimming pool, tennis courts, art room and library.Farlington girls have well-developed social skills and a sense of responsibility to others. We educate for confidence.
