I am delighted to welcome you to our website, which will give you an insight into all of the wonderful things that happen at Farlington each and every day.  

Farlington is an independent day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 4 to 18, located just outside Horsham, on the borders of West Sussex and Surrey.

A Farlington education can be summed up in our three core values: 
IndividualityOpportunity and Community. Individuality is celebrated, opportunities abound, and every member of the school is recognised as a valued and valuable member of our tight-knit community

We are intentionally, and proud to be, a smaller school where strong friendships are forged, where the emphasis is on respect for others, teamwork and collective responsibility. At Farlington, every student has a voice, an opportunity to shine, and is encouraged to participate. Our friendly, cohesive community and positive pupil-to-teacher ratio foster an environment where ambition is never stifled, where existing talents are honed and new ones are discovered, where inquisitive minds are developed and where students grasp every opportunity that comes their way. ALL our students are given the time, space and confidence to think for themselves, to pursue their personal goals, and to make a positive contribution to the school. Students are encouraged to be bold and aim high, take risks, and challenge themselves; parents can be secure in the knowledge that their child is doing this in an environment where pastoral care and student wellbeing are firmly at the heart of all we do. When they leave us, our students are confident, happy and well-rounded – and prepared for and excited by the future that awaits them. 

I truly believe this is a wonderful time to join Farlington – after 124 years of providing an exceptional education to girls, we are now delighted to be fully extending this provision to boys. Our move to co-education in no way changes our values or our principles, but instead enables us to become the only 4-18 co-educational school in the Horsham area. We would love for your family to become part of our story as we enter this exciting new chapter. 

I hope this gives you a flavour of what a Farlington education can offer, and it encourages you to come and visit us; I am confident that when you do, you will discover a school where children love learning, participate wholeheartedly and 'live life to the full'.
