Enrichment at Farborough Primary

We aim to continually increase the cultural capital of all of our children at Farnborough through a culturally rich curriculum which is supported by a wide range of experiences and clubs all which enhance the children’s learning.

Every one of our children is encouraged to develop an appreciation for experiences beyond the classroom, developing their characters and interests through the curriculum and beyond. We want all of our children, regardless of circumstance to have the opportunity to pursue their own interests and develop their own talents. We offer a wide range of art, music and sport activities as well as providing the opportunities for our children to develop socially too.
