Every week at Farnborough Hill is a new adventure, but this week has most certainly been more so than we ever anticipated.
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.

The sense of anticipation and excitement surrounding Beauty and the Beast was something quite extraordinary.
Year 7 pupil, Imogen, has had a very exciting experience over the past term: playing Jane Banks in Mary Poppins The Musical at the Prince Edward Theatre in the West End.
Nine of our Year 10 girls did a fantastic job at representing Farnborough Hill at the Model United Nations Conference at Magdalen College School in Oxford at the end of last month.
Have you ever wondered what a day as a pupil at Farnborough Hill involves?
We followed Amelia from Year 7 and are delighted to share her day with you.
