Today (Monday 24 January 2022) marks International Day of Education. Over the next few days, we will explore the theme of the importance of education with our current pupils on our Social Media pages. We also wanted to hear from our Old Girls who became educators themselves. Both Claudia and Isabella got in touch to share their experiences, and we feel they highlight the importance of education perfectly.
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.

Life can be rushed and busy and so it is important for well-being that we make time to take a step back from our routines.

The Farnborough Hill community once again showed its care and compassion this Christmas, pulling together to contribute to a winter clothes collection for refugees and those most in need during the festive season.
On Sunday, the first of Advent, we were blessed to gather together for a wonderfully festive afternoon: The Friends’ Christmas Market, House Charity Bazaar and Advent Carol Service.
