At Farlington, we recognise that one size does not fit all, and we work hard to provide a flexible provision for our pupils and their families.

Whilst you may not have previously considered boarding as an option for your child, our flexible boarding options can provide a handy solution for busy working families - see below for more information about weekly, flexible and occasional boarding.

We offer a number of "wraparound care" options for pupils of all ages to help parents get their day off to an early start - you can drop your child at school for breakfast - and they can even stay for a light supper with the boarders at the end of the day, easing the parental burden of racing to pick up.

To make Farlington accessible to day pupils who may live a little further away, we run a network of school buses - these routes are frequently reviewed and more information can be found here


Boarding at Farlington can be as flexible as you need it to be! Many flexi-boarders stay in school for one, two or a few nights per week on the nights when they have a busy schedule of after school activities or simply to ease domestic arrangements for the rest of the family! Flexi-boarding can be arranged on a week-by-week or term-by-term basis.  Occasional boarding can also be arranged if spaces are available.

For pupils who live closer to the School, there is the option to become a weekly boarder. This enables students to go home at weekends, but during the week to fully immerse themselves in school life. Many students see this as a ‘best of both worlds’ option with the ability to concentrate on their studies, extra-curricular activities and friends during the week, then spend a day or two with their family at the weekend.

Alongside weekly and flexi boarders, we also have many full boarders, who remain at school throughout the term, ensuring there is always plenty going on at weekends too!


See our Boarding pages for more details

Bus Service
Please find details of our current bus routes here. We are happy to consider any transportation requirements. Routes are subject to availability and may change depending on demand.

We can organise transport to Horsham Station (approximately 10 minutes' drive from the School) so that Senior School pupils can travel home themselves. 

Horsham Station is a 50 minute train journey from London Victoria.

Please contact the Finance Office on 01403 282564 or via email for any questions about school transport options.


Many pupils join Farlington in the Prep School, continue onto the Senior School and from there to the Sixth Form.  There are many benefits to an all through school - transition between phases is seamless as pupils get to know staff, routines and facilities, and in return staff get to know the pupils in their care, their needs and individual contexts, and many of our staff will comment on the joy they derive from watching the students develop over the course of their time with us.
