Following the excitement of the Platinum Jubilee weekend, Mrs Katherine Bell reflects on the School's own Royal associations and the captivating history of Empress Eugénie.
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.
Mrs Alexandra Neil - Head
Farnborough Hill is preparing for the arrival of its new school inhabitants in June: honey bees.
Farnborough Hill has once again received top marks for both the academic achievement and development of its pupils, and for their personal development, following the School’s recent Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) inspection.
We are delighted to announce the new Junior Leadership Team members; Charlotte (Head Girl), Aoife (Deputy Head Girl), Aimee (Deputy Head Girl), Caterina, Preeti and Imogen.
During the first lockdown from March 2020, on Thursdays at 8.00 pm we would gingerly leave the safety of our homes to clap and cheer for key workers, especially those in the NHS working on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. Amélie (U6DEM) reflects on this and the future of nursing.
