Around 400 seniors (11-18) and 300 juniors allowing caring staff to know each pupil and provide for their needs. Strong on basketball with great new swimming pool used for competitive racing. Ethos features concepts of truth and justice and the value of every person. Wide spread of interests covered by adaptive curriculum, and personalised learning courses made available for those who need it.
Most go to universities or vocational colleges appropriate to pupil’s interests. Many overseas pupils are attending Farringtons because their elder siblings did so well there and went on to higher education success in the UK.
School provides a personalised learning course for international students to help with both English learning and development of study skills. Boarding houses staffed by caring ‘mother’-type figures who clearly take a close interest in the welfare of each youngster. Extensive grounds allow for sports and games and frequent weekend supervised trips into nearby London greatly appreciated by the boarding community.
One of the ASIS schools closest to London in the county of Kent taking in a wide academic ability and focussing on holistic growth. Christian principles (Methodist) practised but by no means a ‘heavy’ part of school life or curriculum, which is deliberately wide to cater for mixed abilities. Strong support for weaker English speakers. Wide ethnic and cultural mix within the 70-strong boarding community of the senior school. Good results from a non-selective pupil intake.
