Last Saturday, Shift4, a team of four Year 8 pupils from Farnborough Hill, competed in the CyberFirst Girls competition semi-final held in Southampton.
Farnborough Hill, founded in 1889, is a leading Catholic independent day school for around 550 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.

This week began with a celebration of the Sisters of the RCE in special ceremony to mark the contributions of five of the Sisters to the development of the School.
Last week Years 7 - 11 had a day off timetable and on retreat – an annual event at Farnborough Hill, which gives the girls time to reflect and bond. Each day had a unique set of activities including team-building, talks, reflection and prayer.
On Saturday 25 January, the U14 netball team competed in the Regional Netball Tournament at Wavell School. Fourteen teams had qualified in this age group by either winning or coming second at their county tournament, so the competition was going to be strong.
Students in Year 13 have been celebrating in the past week after receiving their results for the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) Level 3.
