South Farnham School stands on two sites sitting, as the name suggests, south of Farnham. The infants are taught at the Bourne site and the juniors in Menin Way.
South Farnham School stands on an attractive 7 acre site lying, as its name suggests, south of Farnham.
It was built to a high standard in 1938 as a girls' Grammar School and has been significantly modified for younger children in recent years.
The accommodation includes 5 libraries, a music suite and 4 practical rooms. There is both an assembly hall, two studios, gymnasium, cloakrooms and changing rooms. The 7 acres of play area include 3 multi-use games areas, grassed sports fields and pavilion.
South Farnham is a Primary School taking pupils in the age range 7 to 11. We currently have 578 children on roll. They come from a variety of local schools.
Parents are able to state a preference for this school for their child irrespective of where they live unless the school is oversubscribed.
Most of the children move on to Weydon Secondary School when they leave at 11 years of age, although once again parents have the right to choose any secondary school.
We maintain close contact with Weydon to preserve continuity in our children's education.
A Victorian building dating from 1875 with a modern extension to its facilities built in 2004. The Victorian building houses the 2 reception classes; a Resource room providing extra teaching space for small groups or project work; the school office and the hall which is used for assemblies, PE, music, dance and at lunchtimes. Our year 1 and 2 classes are located in the modern extension which houses 4 classrooms, the Headteacher's office and a medical room. Currently there is further accommodation for one additional class. The Library is housed in its own building and provides a quiet room for small group work.
The school grounds include an extensive tarmac playground; an under cover play area; an adventure playground; a grassed playing field and a Sensory Garden. We also have an outdoor heated swimming pool which is safely fenced off beside the playing field.
Our 2007 OFSTED inspection stated:
This remarkable school is highly successful in achieving its aim 'the continual pursuit of excellence.'
