Farah ‘House ethos’

Farah values are Olympic Values: Respect, Excellence, Friendship, Courage, Determination, Inspiration and Equality.

Why 'Farah'?
When Hailsham Community College’s House system was first introduced in 2001, the names reflected our sporting focus as a newly designated Specialist Sports College. In 2013, we have been exploring ways of supporting the Olympic legacy in order to provide a lasting reminder of the phenomenal success and achievement of 2012's Olympic and Paralympic Games.

 Mo Farah

Mohammed "Mo" Farah was born in Somalia on 23 March 1983. He moved to England at the age of eight, unable to speak a word of English yet almost 20 years later he became one of Britain's greatest ever long distance runners.


At secondary school in London, he started competing and taking long distance running seriously, finishing ninth in the English Schools Cross Country event at the age of 13 before winning an English school title – the first of five that he would go on to achieve in his school life – a year later. He continued to work hard at his sport and in 2009 he started to break records and win European and World Championships, making him one of the best long distance runners in the world.


At the London Olympic Games he won two gold medals in the 5,000m and the 10,000m.
