Welcome from the Boarders
Boarding at Farlington is great fun and even though it is a small Boarding House (there are only 46 of us!) it means you get to know everyone really well and your friends here become your second family!
There's always loads going on, from DVD nights when everyone piles into the Day Room on beanbags, eating popcorn and watching the latest film, to long running jokes that always seem to creep into the famous Boarders' Christmas Entertainment.
If you are a younger girl you will be in one of the newly decorated dorms with others your age and as you get older, you will be in double rooms, usually with friends you made during your time in the dorms downstairs! By the time you’re in the Upper Sixth you have your own room which is great because, on top of being able to do your work quietly, you don't have anyone to argue with about what type of music to have on!
Everyone helps one another out and there is always someone to give you a helping hand. The Boarding House staff are fantastic and are always there if you need anything. It is natural to feel homesick but we hope that, like us, you will love it here! The House is very relaxed and the few rules we do have are usually there to make sure you're in bed on time and that you don't end up hurting yourself when having pillow fights!
