South Farnham School is a coeducational academy in Farnham, Surrey, England. It is located on two separate sites, with the Infants Section for children aged 4–7 at The Bourne site (formerly the Bourne Infants School) in the Lower Bourne, and the Junior Section for children aged 7–11 at the main school site at Menin Way.
The school was originally built in 1938 as the Farnham Girls' Grammar School, which was opened by Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester in 1939 and closed in 1973.
In 2011 the Bourne Infants School merged with South Farnham School, and teaching now takes place on two sites. Reception through Year 2 (ages 4–7) are taught at the Bourne site, and Years 3–6 (ages 7–11) are taught at the Menin Way site.
The school has a very impressive reputation, including significant contributions to Farnham's booming property market. South Farnham has topped the state school exam league tables for many years.
Many activities and clubs take place at the end of the normal school day. At present a choice of over 30 out-of-school activities are available including choir, netball and football.
The accommodation at South Farnham School includes seven libraries, a music suite and four practical rooms. There is an assembly hall, two studios, gymnasium, cloakrooms and changing rooms. The 7 acres (28,000 m2) of play area include three astroturf courts, grassed sports fields and pavilion.
