Farnborough Hill

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 and to nurture each and every girl who steps through our doors. It is our mission to send these young women out into the world as the very best versions of themselves.

Farnborough Hill has been centred on these principles since its foundation 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.

Marie-Anne embodies so many traits that we at Farnborough Hill value; compassion, conviction, community and a wholehearted zeal for life.  Marie-Anne undoubtedly deserves to be held in our hearts and we are richer for having her in our shared story.

Showing Unusual Kindness

In the week of prayer for Christian Unity, I have been struck by the beautiful and heartening focus for this year, the desire for us all to show unusual kindness.  If we were to attempt to define what this means, we could do worse than see kindness as:  lending someone your strength rather than reminding them of their weakness.
