Welcome from the Head

Farnborough Hill is a wonderful school.  It marries the very best of the traditional values of compassion, respect and team spirit with the forward-thinking qualities of tolerance, flexibility and ambition. The School fosters self-esteem, service, academic excellence and a true belief in an all-round education. In short, we throw ourselves wholeheartedly into the education of young women; it is our passion to educate, to innovate, to coach and accompany each and every girl who steps through our doors, sending them out into the world as the very best versions of themselves.

Farnborough Hill has been centred on these principles since its foundation over 130 years ago. The School has always focused on educating the whole person and this remains the case today. We have always educated the girls academically, spiritually, creatively, emotionally and physically and we always will. Well-being is nurtured alongside academics; time is given to prayer and mindfulness; physicality is embraced and emotional intelligence cultivated. 

Superb resources and facilities combined with the energy and expertise of highly-motivated staff ensure that the girls have the opportunities and self-belief to succeed in a wide variety of fields. This is a place where pupils thrive, are nourished, and are allowed to develop their individual character before launching into the world as agents of change.  

I am incredibly proud to be the Head of such a loving and caring school.  We are a community grounded in the teachings of the Roman Catholic faith, and we encourage you to arrange to visit us to experience this wonderful atmosphere for yourself.

Education is Life Itself

Education is not merely about the assimilation of content but also about learning how to live and appreciate the present.
