Farleigh is a leading co-educational prep school situated in 60 acres of magnificent parkland and landscaped woodlands in the Test Valley. The school environment has a real sense of achievement and momentum provided by the broad curriculum and commitment to academic, creative, cultural and sporting excellence.

S&C Slatter was selected to provide its specialist construction and civil engineering skills in building a major sports facility for the school. A key element of the development undertaken by Slatter Surfacing & Civils was a 2300m2 floodlit macadam car park providing 94 parking spaces and 5 drop off spaces, accessed by a new macadam roadway and bordered by pedestrian pathways.

The floodlighting features 8no. static columns with LED floods with illuminated bollards lighting the vehicular entrance to the new sports pitch.

Contracts Manager David Smith was responsible for project delivery.

The new all-weather pitch is a fantastic addition to Farleigh’s extensive facilities. We have a strong tradition of boys and girls gaining sports scholarships to senior schools and it is important that our pupils are able to play hockey on AstroTurf. The new pitch is part of a wider programme of capital investment, ensuring that Farleigh maintains its place as one of the top prep schools in the country.
