Our school

Welcome to the Farnborough State School website.

 I am proud to be the Principal of such a wonderful school with a strong reputation in the local community. 

As a school of around 300 students, we are large enough to offer a full range of curriculum and extra curricula offerings but still be small enough to provide a friendly, caring environment where students thrive academically and socially.

 At Farnborough State School we focus on developing each & every student to be literate, numerate and  active, healthy, engaged citizens.

Our staff is committed to excellence and constantly engage in professional learning to ensure our curriculum is challenging and engaging. We have a strong focus on literacy and numeracy.

 Our facilities enhance our learning environment. All class rooms are fitted with air conditioners and electronic whiteboards.

There is a multi-purposed hall and an adjacent building with a well-equipped Library, a Computer Lab and Science /Art room.


The school has a range of sporting facilities including a tennis court, cricket pitch and practice nets, basketball and netball courts and athletics facilities including shot-put, discus circles and long jump pits.

Our natural environment is enhanced through the school’s tree-planting program and an established orchard. The school is one of only a few in Queensland to have a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program, with gardening and cooking integrated into the curriculum.

Farnborough State School is a great school and I welcome you to browse our website and contact us should you require any further information.
