What the parents say...

I feel confident that my boys are in good hands at Salesian College. The school knows how to get the best out of boys, there is great communication between staff and parents, and there is a happy, high achieving, nurturing atmosphere.

This is an excellent school, with very effective communication between the school team and parents. The teaching is first class and there is always additional help available should it be needed. The school develops the boys to achieve not just academic success but to grow into young respectable men.

The school has been excellent for my sporty son. he has plenty of opportunity during and after the school day to play sport. The school is also incredibly organised in terms of fixtures - months in advance I am informed of the fixture list especially useful for Saturday morning sport.

My son currently attends Salesian College and I am impressed with how quickly he has settled into the school and the results he is achieving so far. The communication links between parent and school are good. There is a very active PTA and a great community spirit.

Salesian Farnborough is outstanding for all-round education, nurturing and spiritual support. They have an excellent team of teachers who really care about the boys and 6th Form girls with an 'every child is important' attitude. Pupils are offered a huge range of activities and opportunities outside normal classes. This is definitely a place for hard-working pupils who really want an exciting yet thoroughly well-grounded school experience to prepare them for the next stage.

My eldest son did extremely well at Salesian, they have a very caring attitude and know how to get the best out of teenage boys. My youngest son is currently in Year 8 and I would highly recommend the school.
