Welcome to Admissions

We appreciate choosing the right school for your child is a hugely important decision. Please come and visit us and experience first-hand what makes Farlington such a friendly and vibrant school.

We are delighted  that our Prep School has been shortlisted for Prep School of the Year 2018 by Independent School Parent Magazine. This comes during a year when we were awarded the accolade of one of the Top 100 UK Prep Schools by the Sunday Times Parent Power Survey, and our excellent A Level examination results meant we were placed 12th in the UK in the Daily Telegraph Smaller Schools League Tables and the top school in West Sussex.

To arrange a visit, please call me on 01403 282573. Alternatively you can email me at admissions@farlingtonschool.com
