What the school says...

Barfield is a traditional prep school in Farnham set in 12 acres of woodland and green fields. Nursery children lead a healthy and happy life learning about "readiness for school". They start the beginnings of reading and writing in the nursery whilst still being able to 'play to learn' outside; in the woods, school garden, forest school, chicken coop and cook house.

Academic rigour is of high importance throughout and academic standards are expected and attained by our pupils. Children are guided through the process of 11+ and CE in detail and staff offer consultations on what school would be suitable for your child and where appropriate, scholarships that may be attained.

Sport is very important with competitive matches being played against other schools in netball, rugby, hockey, football, swimming. Our indoor swimming pool enables the children to swim all year round and their standard of swimming is high as a result.

The Arts are strong at Barfield with enjoyable termly drama performances and wonderful musical concerts featuring choral music, rock groups, soloists and orchestral pieces.
