SENIOR SCHOOL LIFE

The Senior School is welcoming and down-to- earth; pupils are free to be themselves, to explore their talents and skills and develop their love of learning. Your son or daughter will be busy making new friends and discovering subjects that stretch their imagination.

Our core pastoral values of integrity, endeavour, compassion, resilience and contribution are at the heart of daily life and create a happy, purposeful environment.

PUPIL VOICE

Farlington students are encouraged to have a voice and contribute their ideas about how to ensure that the School offers the best possible environment for young people.

We invite opinion on all matters pertaining to school life, from the range of clubs on offer to the catering provision, and from the books available in the Library to the decoration of the boarding houses.
