Head, Mrs Alexandra Neil, has praised her girls’ fortitude with the publication of GCSE grades today.
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.

Mrs Alexandra Neil, Head, applauds the decision to use Centre Assessment Grades for A level and GCSE results.
2020 has been a tumultuous year, challenging, uncertain and ever-changing. In the midst of this, Farnborough Hill girls have triumphed once more; they have been rewarded with outstanding results, with the School’s outgoing Head Girl becoming the third in a row to secure a coveted Oxbridge place.
UVI Student Jess has written a final farewell to Farnborough Hill, 'my home for the past seven years'.
After what felt like an eternity, I was delighted to be able to return to school this June. My sister and I often refer to ‘the Hill’ as a second home to us, as it has been a place of community and happiness for the past six years of my life.
