Farlington School is an independent day and boarding school for pupils aged four to eighteen in Horsham, West Sussex, England. Farlington was founded in 1896 originally in Haywards Heath but moved to its present site at Strood Park near Horsham in 1955. It is situated about 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Horsham. Farlington joined the Bellevue Education group in September 2019. The school also has a long association with the University of Chichester in the field of teacher education.
Farlington has approximately 300 pupils. Farlington is sited in 33 acres of parkland at Strood Park and Little Barn Owls also have a Nursery on this site. The Prep School is housed in the New Courtyard buildings and the Peto Building. Senior School accommodation includes the Jacobean Mansion House, Moberly Building and the Simpson Science block. The Sixth Form is located in the dedicated Sixth Form Centre.
For the most part, students attend as day pupils; however, Farlington also offers boarding from the age of 8, on a full, weekly or occasional basis. There are two boarding houses; Fishponds is the junior boarding house and the Mansion House is home to the senior boarders. The boarding community is both British and international.
Farlington's distinctive uniform features a French navy jacket embroidered with the school's 'clock tower' logo, and a blue and green tartan kilt.
Farlington welcomes international students and provides for the educational and cultural needs of students from all over the world. They participate fully in academic and extra-curricular activities while improving their English and gaining high grades in the English education system.
All international students at Farlington live in the boarding house with British students so they have the opportunity to improve their English outside the classroom. They can also join in with British students in the fantastic range of sports and activities that take place outside of lessons, including art, music, drama, extra-curricular activities, social events, and day and residential trips.
For students for whom English is a second (or sometimes third) language, specialist EAL teachers provide additional support appropriate to their needs and, where possible, one to one support is be offered, particularly in the Sixth Form. This ensures that all students have access to the whole curriculum. In addition they offer an English language program tailored to suit the individual to enabling every student to achieve success in all subject areas.
They prepare pupils for both the IGCSE examination in English as a second language and for the academic module of the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination. Pupils may also take the Cambridge FCE (First Certificate in English), PET (Preliminary English Test) and KET (Key English Test) examinations in December or June.
They aim to ensure that every student's language needs are fully catered for from the outset so that they are well equipped to meet the challenges they will face when working in a second language.
Some EAL students are only at Farlington for a short time. The EAL teachers work to ensure that they benefit from their time with them by encouraging spoken English through discussion of news events, pronunciation work and paired reading. All overseas students are provided with a buddy who meets with them regularly and helps them to integrate into the life of the School.
