Farnborough Hill

Farnborough Hill, founded in 1889, is a leading Catholic independent day school for around 570 girls aged 11 – 18 years. The School welcomes girls of all faiths and none, who are happy to support the ethos.

Located on the Hampshire/Surrey border, the School has excellent transport links, both by train and road, while enjoying a beautiful and inspiring setting in over 65 acres of parkland.

Farnborough Hill is a vibrant community. The vision for pupils is simple: to help them become the very best version of themselves. Teachers believe in the gifts and talents of each individual and value the uniqueness of each person. From this diversity and belief comes a unity of purpose: to develop young women, each strong, compassionate and courageous, each going into the world to play a positive role.

Farnborough Hill girls are engaged, committed and fun-loving. They are achievers but not paralysed by perfectionism. They are risk-takers and carers. These fabulous girls are buoyed up by all the adults at Farnborough Hill, each in their specific role, sharing responsibility for the development of character and nurturing the spirit of the girls in their care.

Superb resources and facilities combined with the energy and expertise of highly-motivated staff ensure that the girls have the opportunities and self-belief to succeed in a wide variety of fields. This is a place where pupils thrive, are nourished, and are allowed to develop their individual character before launching into the world as agents of change.
