At Fairholme we believe that each child will develop best as an individual when placed in an atmosphere of respect and trust; where parents, teachers and pupils have an effective, healthy influence on attitudes and actions.
In a caring, Christian, and totally dedicated teaching atmosphere, our very ethos is to provide pupils with the best possible educational start in life.
Achieving high academic standards and good discipline, and with a focus upon maintaining traditional teaching methods, we are renowned as providing the perfect grounding for entrance into highly selective senior schools.
With small class sizes, and a 100% selective senior school pass rate for our eleven-year-olds, the Fairholme approach is well proven.
Through a well-balanced curriculum, Fairholme carefully prepares pupils for examinations at highly selective regional schools.

A choice of activities that changes each term.
Choosing the right school environment for a child is, without doubt, one of the most important decisions that a parent can make.
At Fairholme our objective is to ensure that parents are completely happy with their choice of school. We also look forward to working with our parents as "partners" in many aspects regarding the education of their children. Entrance to Form 1 is by interview. For older children, entrance is decided by assessment and a report from the child's present school.
Our Kindergarten accepts children aged from 2 1/2 years and offers morning or full day care. This is provided five days a week. Entrance to the Kindergarten is by informal interview.
