Community Feast Day is a key date in the Farnborough Hill calendar, a time when we join the Sisters to celebrate the founding of their Order and enjoy the privilege of witnessing their renewal of vows.
Farnborough Hill, founded in 1889, is a leading Catholic independent day school for around 565 girls aged 11 - 18 years. We welcome girls of all faiths and none, who are happy to support our ethos. Located on the Hampshire/Surrey border, the School has excellent transport links, both by train and road, while enjoying a beautiful and inspiring setting in over 65 acres of parkland.
Our school is a vibrant community. Our vision for our girls is simple: to help them become the very best version of themselves. We believe in the gifts and talents of each individual and we value the uniqueness of each person. From this diversity and belief comes a unity of purpose: to develop young women, each strong, compassionate and courageous, each going into the world to play a positive role.
Our girls are engaged, committed and fun-loving. They are achievers but not paralysed by perfectionism. They are risk-takers and carers. These fabulous girls are buoyed up by all the adults at Farnborough Hill, each in our specific role sharing responsibility for the development of character and nurturing the spirit of our girls. We do this joyfully and wholeheartedly.

The theme of this year’s Senior Prize Giving was ‘Certainty in a time of uncertainty’; a fitting message and a promise that the community of Farnborough Hill will remain strong.
Last Monday, we came together as separate Year Group communities to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, laying down their lives for their fellow country men and women.
Just before half term, we gave the Year 11s the opportunity to step into the sixth formers’ shoes and experience just a taste of what life in the sixth form on the hill is like.
Early last week, we were treated to a series of presentations given by 16 members of the Upper Sixth who are about to complete their Level 3 Extended Project Qualifications.
