Can we visit South Farnborough Junior School before applying? 

We have two events that you can attend in the Autumn Term and we would encourage you to visit during these times and get a feel for the school before you apply. 

  • On Wednesday 6th November 2019 at 7pm, we will be hosting an Open Evening for parents/carers only.  To book a place please visit
  • During the week 11th - 15th November 2019, we will be holding an Open Week for parents/carers and, if you wish to bring them, your children.  This visit would be during the school day, giving you an opportunity to see our school in action.  Your tour will be guided by our Year 6 children who will be very keen to show off their school and answer any questions you may have. Each tour lasts about 20 minutes and local infant schools are aware they are taking place.  In order to minimise disruption to our children, we ask that you please try and visit during this week as we may not be able to accommodate you on other dates.
