A HAPPY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Our aim is to instil within our pupils a long-lasting love of learning. We stretch the most able and support the least confident so that they each fulfil their individual academic potential.
Our most recent Independent Schools Inspectorate report described Farlington as providing ‘an excellent curriculum with outstanding teaching.’ Our staff pride themselves on an ability to harness your child’s academic talents and their priority is to provide an education which challenges and inspires all pupils, irrespective of ability.
For a smaller school, Farlington offers an impressive range of subjects at both GCSE and A-Level, and results are consistently impressive. Whilst examination results are of course only one measure of a school's success, we are justifiably proud of what our pupils achieve at both GCSE and A-Level each year. In 2021, 71% of our Year 13 students achieved A* to A in their A-Levels, and 67% of our Year 11 students achieved 9 to 7 in their GCSEs.
In addition to our excellent academic results, Farlington achieves fantastic 'Value Added' results. In 2019, Farlington was placed 35th out of 4,470 schools and colleges in England when comparing 'Value Added' scores (progress made between the end of GCSE and the end of A- Level studies, compared to similar students across the country).
Every year, our Upper Sixth students are successful in gaining places at their first choice of university. You can view our most recent leavers' destinations here.
