The Curriculum

Falcons is an ambitious school with a strong set of values focused on providing every boy with the opportunity to reach their full potential. Nurturing a love of learning, we ensure that every boy acquires and secures the skills to become effective lifelong learners, fit not only for the world we live in today, but for a future yet to be determined.

Games & the Arts

Outstanding facilities including music school, art studio and links with the local theatre. Asides from our obvious link with Richmond Rugby Club and Old Deer Park, we are incredibly lucky to benefit from some fantastic outside space, using grounds and developing links with a variety of external providers, to give our boys the opportunity to experience an education with adventure.

Pastoral Care

We have a pastoral care system which allows us to collaborate, share and support the boys as a community. Boys feel safe at Falcons and as a result they are happy. We also never lose sight of the fact that our boys belong first and foremost to you, our parents, and so we do all we can to foster a relationship with you that not only allows, but promotes, the opportunity to come together and work alongside one another.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Falcons boys enjoy a vibrant learning environment where staff nurture a love of learning. We are an ambitious 4-13 school with a strong set of values focused on providing every boy with the opportunity to reach their full potential. Yet, just as importantly, we realise what an exciting, and challenging, time it is to be growing up and the significant role we play in preparing the boys for their future beyond this. We appreciate that academics alone will not provide the boys with the skills they need to succeed and are therefore proud to offer a range of opportunities in leadership, sports, the arts, within the community, through charity work, drama whilst also promoting a range of cultures, ideas and an understanding of the world around us. We want all our boys to acquire and secure the proficiency to become effective life-long learners.
