New junior boarding house to open

Younger boarders at a West Sussex girls' school will be moving into a new boarding house as of September

Posted by Dave Higgitt | May 14, 2015 | Bricks & mortar

Farlington School’s Fishponds boarding house will be a self-contained building with a kitchen, living room and facilities for 12 boarders ranging in age from 8 to 13 along with a residential housemistress. Older boarders will continue living in the main Mansion House building.

Construction work is now being carried out, converting the building from a domestic residence to a flexible living space with its own back garden situated within 33 acres of campus parkland.

Louise Higson, Farlington’s headmistress, said: “This new boarding house will allow us to extend our boarding provision to give a dedicated living area for our younger boarders, enabling us to provide a home-away-from-home atmosphere. We are keen that girls have the chance to experience boarding, so we will be offering taster evenings as well as full, weekly and flexi-boarding options. Fishponds House is beautifully situated within our grounds and is the perfect boarding location.”
