Barfield Prep School

Our View

For children who love bounding about outside, this Farnham prep hits the mark with its award-winning outdoor-pursuits department, Three Peaks Barfield, which runs weekly lessons – rope courses, archery, zip wires – as part of their adventure programme.

There are also ‘ACE’ days (awareness, commitment and empowerment) that cover everything from first aid to sustainability; celebration assemblies to highlight pupil achievements; and consistently great sports results, especially in swimming and the Schools Aquathlon Championships.
