I am hugely grateful for my time at Farlington, it helped make me the person I am today, gave me the skills and confidence to follow my career path through banking, charity and now running my own business and all with a lot of laughs and fun. Along the way my friends from Farlington have been a source of support and help in every aspect of my life from relationships to my career. Being part of the Alumni has helped expand this, widening my group of friends to include an incredible network of strong women who are all proud to say they went to Farlington.
Farlington School Alumni
Welcome to the area of the website dedicated to our ‘Old Farlingtonians’.
Since 1896 Farlington has provided a first class education to generations of girls and we pride ourselves on our ability to inspire our pupils with lasting friendships. Our fundamental aim is to ensure that Old Farlingtonians do not lose these valuable bonds and can benefit from them both socially and professionally. In addition, we aim to provide support to the Farlington Foundation through our alumni events and fundraising programme.
As former member of Farlington you are part of a wide reaching community which provides a wealth of networking opportunities, whether for friendship or business.
Our LinkedIn page offers valuable professional connections for both former pupils and parents

The Farlington Foundation
It is widely acknowledged that a strong Alumni network can bring substantial benefits to a school. As well as enabling former pupils to stay connected, it provides a focus for giving something back and promoting the benefits of the excellent, all-round education which Farlington provides.
With this in mind, The Farlington Foundation was set up as a charity in 2005 with the aim of supporting pupils where families are facing financial difficulty or cases of hardship. Through this Foundation we are able to offer a life changing experience and provide a platform for educational success. However, this is only made possible with continued financial support from the wider Farlington community, former pupils and current and former parents.
If you would like to support the Foundation, donations can made using the Gift Aid forms or by clicking the ‘Donate’ button below:
As part of our fundraising strategy, we have recently launched The Farlington Foundation Lottery, a fun and friendly initiative aimed at Friends of the School including current parents, although it is not available to pupils. Please click below for more information.

Here are some testimonials from parents whose children have benefitted from the support of the Farlington Foundation.
Without the help of the Farlington Foundation we can say, hand on heart, that our daughter would not be the same young woman she is today. The whole Farlington experience from start to finish was life changing. She was underperforming academically, was socially extremely reserved and hugely lacking in confidence. Having pre-viously had no idea where her talents lay she is now transformed into a confident achiever with a particular gift for art and textiles, a positive outlook and a zest for life and learning. We could not have asked for more. Thank you Farlington for believing in our daughter –she now believes in herself.
We would like to thank everyone at Farlington who made it possible both academically and financially for our daughter to achieve such amazing A Level results, enabling her to fulfil her dream of being offered a place at one of Britain’s top universities.
It has been a truly wonderful experience and a privilege being part of your school and I can only thank you once again for your help and support for my daughter.
