HEADTEACHER'S WELCOME

_________

It is an extremely exciting time for the school, as we build on proud traditions of success and continue to grow a warm and hard-working community, where strong personal development for all is highly-prized and actively pursued. Our students are, overwhelmingly, happy to be part of Farlingaye, and engage with the many opportunities that the school provides for academic success and progression into the next phase of their lives. Their efforts have been rewarded with excellent exam results in recent years, at both GCSE and A Level, and huge numbers of students have been enabled to access high-quality university courses or to pursue exciting employment or training opportunities.

There is a very wide range of extra-curricular activities available for students, and we strongly encourage all students to get involved with these in order to develop their social skills and self-esteem. We know that a positive and secure sense of self is vital for our students, and we use a wide range of methods to help them to feel good about themselves, and optimistic about their futures.

At Farlingaye, we are fortunate to be able to draw on the invaluable input of engaged and supportive parents and a well-established Governing Body. We have a committed and highly-skilled staff body, and our status as a Teaching School and a Leading Edge School helps us to be on the cutting edge of staff training and development. We believe that everyone is a learner, and that we all have a role in continuing to find improvements in everything that we do.
