Farleigh School is a leading co-educational IAPS Catholic boarding and day Prep School of 450 children, aged 3 to 13, situated in 70 acres of beautiful parkland in the Test Valley of Hampshire, close to the A303 (M3) and just over an hour from London.

Boarding and day pupils alike benefit from excellent pastoral care in a happy atmosphere, supported by a large number of resident staff. The School's Catholic ethos forms the foundation of the pastoral care surrounding the children, for which Farleigh is well known. Farleigh warmly welcomes children of all denominations and encourages them to explore life to the full, and to have a sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them.

The School has an excellent academic and sporting reputation, each year sending pupils to all the major senior schools via Common Entrance and 13+ scholarships. Up-to-date facilities include a new 22 metre heated indoor swimming pool, outdoor pool, light and spacious art and design centre, theatre with tiered seating, studio rehearsal space, science laboratories, sports hall, squash courts, well equipped music department with individual rehearsal rooms, a purpose built, tiered-seating Concert Hall and state of the art IT suites.

A wide range of clubs and activities are arranged after school and at weekends, giving boarders and day children a full and varied life. A resident catering team provides healthy homemade food, which is very popular with the children.
