Head's welcome

Welcome to Farlington.

A Farlington education can be summed up in our three core values: Individuality, Opportunity and Community. Individuality is celebrated, opportunities abound, and every member of the School is recognised as a valued and valuable member of our tightly-knit community.

We are intentionally, and proud to be, a smaller school where strong friendships are forged, where the emphasis is on respect for others, teamwork and collective responsibility. At Farlington, every student has a voice, an opportunity to shine, and is encouraged to participate. Our friendly, cohesive community and positive pupil to teacher ratio foster an environment where ambition is never stifled, where existing talents are honed and new ones are discovered, where inquisitive minds are developed and where students grasp every opportunity that comes their way. ALL our students are given the time, space and confidence to think for themselves, to pursue their personal goals, and to make a positive contribution to the school.

Students are encouraged to be bold and aim high, take risks, and challenge themselves; parents can be secure in the knowledge that their child is doing this in an environment where pastoral care and student wellbeing are firmly at the heart of all we do. When they leave us, our students are confident, happy and well-rounded – and prepared for and excited by the future that awaits them.

I hope this gives you a flavour of what a Farlington education can offer, and it encourages you to come and visit us; I am confident that when you do, you will discover a school where children love learning, participate wholeheartedly and “live life to the full”.

  • We celebrate individuality and encourage pupils to be true to themselves, helping them to develop resilience and self-worth. Teachers meet pupils at their point of need, challenging and supporting them to strive for personal and academic excellence.
  • Confidence leads to participation and participation leads to success. We encourage pupils to breach familiarity, discover their strengths and recognise opportunity. Horizons are limitless.
  • Within our community, every pupil is valued as an individual and each contributes in their own unique way to our happy environment. We recognise the value of a strong partnership with parents so that we can work together to achieve every child’s potential.
