"Farleigh is an outstanding school and we aren't in the least surprised that parents go into raptures about the place.
'Ah, lovely Farleigh,' mused one father. Children, teachers and parents extol its virtues, its academic success, its beautiful grounds and its prowess at everything from music to sport.
But above all, it's a happy school, led by an exceptional head who's determined that every pupil should be listened to and understood. He wants children to be given the best possible start in life - and they really are."
"Farleigh is simply unique. Chosen for its Catholic ethos and after endless recommendations, we have been astounded by the school. Each child is seen as an individual, nurtured and encouraged at all times.
The children have the most deep-set sense of right and wrong instilled in them from the moment they arrive, which creates kind, confident and happy children who seek to help others and find joy in the achievement of others."
"The pre-prep is based in its own spacious building on the school site, with two classes per year group. We arrived at 4pm, with excited children pouring into after-school activities like yoga and sewing. Pre-prep opens its doors for breakfast club at 7.30am and an after-school club runs till 5.45pm."
"There is a focus on enrichment of personality: they are educating children for their futures and the workplace, not merely churning out exam bots. Pastoral care is fully integrated throughout and the teaching and learning support provision is excellent...
Parents praise the fact that their children have been lucky enough to enjoy a stress-free childhood: 'It lets children be children' - but there's not a hint of shabbiness. Slick, smart and very, very happy."
"Boarding makes a strong contribution to the distinctive atmosphere of the school. The very positive ethos of the school fosters considerable loyalty and pride in the boarders... It is clearly evident that boarders enjoy each other's company and acknowledge the beneficial effect that boarding has on their independence and self-reliance."
If you do not wish to visit yet, but would like to get a flavour of the school, please visit our Open Mornings page to enjoy a brief informal taster tour of Farleigh from two of our Year 8 pupils, filmed as our immediate response to the short-notice cancellation of our Open Morning on 14th March.
Alternatively our Head, Fr Simon, would be very happy to meet you via Skype or Zoom at a time that is convenient for you.
"The setting is delightfully rural, with 70 acres of sweeping Hampshire parkland and a landscaped arboretum, yet only five minutes' drive from the A303.
Parents praise Farleigh's inspirational head, Father Simon Everson, the teaching, the music and the pastoral care, particularly the kindness and support shown by pupils to each other across the year groups."
"Under the guidance of popular headmaster Father Simon Everson... it's become a leading prep school, producing confident, kind, well-rounded children. It's also strong on public speaking and the performing arts."
