Boarding at Farleigh is... "nurtured and thriving." The Good Schools Guide
“Boarding accommodation is warm, homely and comfortable… Pupils are happy, secure and confident, and they show very good levels of respect for each other and for the staff.” ISI Inspection Report 2003
|Boarders forge great friendships...|
Always having friends around and taking part in clubs and activities together strengthens your child’s friendships. Living together with their peers helps them to develop confidence, camaraderie, maturity and self-reliance in a safe environment.
|... and they feel secure and happy|
With a hundred boarders and fifty flexi-boarders, boarding at Farleigh remains successful because of the friendly family atmosphere and warm relationship between staff and children.
“Lots of staff around in the evening including the 5 gappies. Third interrogation of children punctuated by incredulous snorts reveals nothing but kindness and, behind that, more kindness. House mothers rated very highly.” The Good Schools Guide
