School profile

Farmor's School

Founded in 1738, the school has a sense of history and tradition which few comprehensive schools can lay claim to; this in turn structures our ethos and values. Set in the Cotswold town of Fairford and surrounded by beautiful countryside, the school is a calm and pleasant environment for learning. Our school values are integrity, fellowship and endeavour.
