Farrowdale is not academically selective and children of all abilities are welcomed and well catered for.  We accept children from 3 years of age and government nursery vouchers are accepted for 3 and 4 year olds.

It is always beneficial for parents to see the school during its normal working day to appreciate the children’s working environment and the school atmosphere, therefore parents interested in a place for their child at Farrowdale are invited to visit the school at any time. Please call or email the office to arrange a time when the Proprietors will be happy to give you a tour and discuss your child’s future. Admissions are accepted throughout the academic year.

Since opening in the early 1980s, Farrowdale House has continued to attract pupils from a wide catchment area that covers Greater Manchester and the Yorkshire/Lancashire Borders with pupils travelling daily from Chadderton, Middleton, Ashton-U-Lyne, Mossley, Saddleworth, Marsden, Rochdale, Walsden, Rossendale Valley, Littleborough and Whitworth. Farrowdale House is now the oldest established completely independent preparatory school in the area.
