'St Marys Farnham Royal primary School is GOOD school' Ofsetd 2015

We are a larger than the average, voluntary aided, Church of England Primary School, serving a diverse community. We are very proud of all our children and of our Christian values, which ensure they work and play together harmoniously.

Although we currently have over 320 children on roll and we are a two form entry school which insures our class sizes are small.  There are 25 children per class and most class teachers are also supported by a Learning Support Assistant. This enables us to know every child well and provide a happy, family orientated education.

 The Year groups are then grouped into four Key Stages, led by experienced senior teachers:

  • Early Years Foundation Stage – Nursery & Reception
  • Key Stage 1 – Years 1 & 2
  • Lower Key Stage 2 – Years 3 & 4
  • Upper Key Stage 2 – Years 5 & 6

We currently do have a few places available in some year groups, so if you are interested in visiting our school to find out more we would be very happy to show you around. Please get it touch with the school office to arrange an appointment.
