Highfield South Farnham stands on an attractive two-acre site sitting in the south of Farnham.

We are a Primary and Nursery School situated on Weydon Lane. The school opened  in February 2015 as part of South Farnham Educational Trust, welcoming pupils in the age range 3-11 years.

The learning environment includes a well-equipped library, a music studio including three small group learning rooms, an additional learning zone  and food technology area. A multipurpose hall, used on a daily basis, offers a full range of gymnastic apparatus and performance space.  The two acres of play area include grassed sports fields, EYFS playground, a netball court and purpose built outside classroom surrounded by woodland.  

Extensive developments to our educational provision are ongoing, including a further covered teaching area to the rear of school and a multi-use games area. 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.
