Overview

Welcome to our friendly school in the centre of Farnham. We hope you will take the time to look carefully through our site to gain an insight and feel for our unique and inspirational school.

You will be able to discover a school which develops a love of learning for life, through a fun, challenging and creative curriculum, where learning skills are at the core.

Our school is a place where children are the centre of all that we do in order to allow them to grow into truly wonderful people, who make a difference.

About Us

St. Andrew’s Infant School is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England School. It was founded in 1860 and at present caters for up to 90 boys and girls between the ages of four and seven.

In 2010 we celebrated the school’s 150th anniversary. The oldest surviving School Log Book dates from 1871, when the then head teacher recorded that she began to give instruction in Arithmetic, Writing, Singing, and Marching. Today, thankfully, the curriculum is much broader and more in keeping with our modern lives.

The school is situated in the centre of Farnham, in a peaceful, secluded corner overlooking the churchyard and Parish Church of St. Andrew.

The school accommodation consists of four classrooms each with its own practical area. There is a hall which serves as a gymnasium and a music and drama room, as well as the dining area. In addition we have two rooms designated for small group teaching - the Rainbow Room and the Launch Pad – as well as a mezzanine floor - The Rocket Room - used as both the staffroom and as another teaching room.

There is a well stocked library and each classroom has its own comfortable book area. The children are surrounded by books and actively encouraged to develop a love of reading.

The playground is marked out for a variety of games to be used in P.E. lessons and at playtime.

We also have a play frame, play house, large wooden boat and a range of games equipment for outside use. We also have access to use the field in the library gardens for P.E.

The school makes full use of its location in a rich varied environment and the Park, Castle, Town Centre and Flood Meadows are all within easy walking distance.
