A Warm Welcome

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.

Returning to the Hill

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.

Junior Leadership Team: Meet the Team

This year, like with everything else, we had to move our Junior Leadership Team elections to a virtual platform, from recording hustings videos to interviews via Teams. We are delighted with how all the applicants handled this shift in processes; it was a hugely competitive field but we are thrilled to introduce the stellar new team: Eva (Head Girl), Emilia (Deputy Head Girl), Libby (Deputy Head Girl), Caitlin, Charlotte, Danni, Ellie and Emily. Each JLT member has written a short paragraph to introduce themselves.
