A Warm Welcome

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.

Old Girls' Reunion

Last Saturday, the School should have been echoing with footsteps of old for our annual reunion of past pupils and staff. There has been a reunion at School, during peacetime, since 1926, so it was with disappointment we moved this to a virtual event.
