Welcome to Admissions

We appreciate choosing the right school for your child is a hugely important decision.

While our school is closed due to Government advice at this time, unfortunately it will not be possible to visit us in person. However, admissions is still open, and we are encouraging families who are interested in joining the school this September or later on to get in touch with our Registrar via telephone on 01403 282573 or email admissions@farlingtonschool.com Our Registrar will follow up to provide you with all the information you need and to schedule a virtual meeting with our Head.

We look forward to welcoming visitors to Farlington School once again when the current situation has passed, when we will be able to invite you to visit us and experience first-hand what makes Farlington such a friendly and vibrant school.


Louise Mursell, Head of Admissions
