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 block 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.
The original victorian school building dates from 1875.
Significant extensions have been added over the last 12 years including a new hall which was completed in 2014. The school currently incorporates 9 classrooms, a library, several small rooms for group work, and a large studio used for dance, drama etc. Assemblies and activities such as P.E. and music are held in the new hall, which is also used at lunchtimes. School meals are freshly cooked on the premises.
The school has extensive grounds which include a dedicated Early Years play area, a large multi-use games area, an adventure playground, a grassed playing field and a Sensory Garden. There is also a small produce garden where the children can grow vegetables. We have an outdoor heated swimming pool, which is safely fenced off beside the multi-use games area, and this is used for lessons during the summer term.
