St Polycarp's Catholic Primary School St Polycarp’s Catholic Primary School


St Polycarp’s is a two form Catholic Primary school, part of the Xavier Catholic Education Trust. Our school is situated in beautiful well-resourced grounds in a residential area within walking distance to Farnham town centre.

St Polycarp’s is a lively, vibrant happy community where the Gospel values form the basis of our ethos and teaching.  We recognise that every child is made in the image and likeness of God, is unique and equally valued. We aim to promote a love of learning, creativity and independence, helping children to face challenges with confidence and resilience.

We encourage active participation on learning and consider ‘active learning’ to be central to our school.  Children participate in daily running, a wide variety of sports and our commitment is reflected in our Platinum Sports Award.

We are proud of our Teaching School status, we train teachers for the future and work closely with other schools in our Alliance, local Farnham schools and schools from within the Xavier Catholic Education Trust.
