Pupil Taster Afternoon

Half of the new EYFS cohort will be invited to spend the afternoon in their new indoor/outdoor classroom.

Prospective Parents Oct 2020.pdf

At East Farleigh, we know how important it is to make sure that you choose the best school possible for your child. The current climate means that certain restrictions are in place that do not allow us to offer what we ordinarily would do.

However, we understand the importance of providing parents with as much information as possible about our school so you can make an informed decision about your child’s schooling. If you are interested in joining our East Farleigh family, here are the details of our new entrants programme for children wishing to join our school in September 2021:

A Virtual Tour of Our School

We take great pride in our school and love showing any visitors around so it is with a very heavy heart that we are not able to offer tours inside our school whilst the children are in the building. However, in order to still showcase our wonderful school environment in action, please watch the following virtual tour of the school:
