Inter-House Sports Afternoon took place on Thursday 8 July 2021, a much-anticipated event, met with a great deal of excitement.
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.

Our Upper Sixth students said au revoir to the School the week before summer commences. As you could expect, their final week was busy as well as emotional.
Congratulations to our team of CAFOD Young Leaders from the Lower Sixth who have successfully raised £945 for CAFOD’s Walk for Water campaign.
The Art Department has been celebrating the successes of pupils who have submitted entries to a number of local and national competitions this year.
After nearly a term of online learning where the focus had to be on theory, drawing skills or practical work using resources only available at home, Mrs Liz Larkin, our inspirational and highly creative Design and Technology specialist teacher, was delighted to see the girls back in our fabulous workshop when in-school lessons restarted this term.
