Welcome to the Falcons Pre-Prep, a leading independent day school for boys aged 3 – 7 (Pre-Reception (Nursery) through to Year 2) based in Chiswick, London.
Founded in 1956, we are first and foremost specialists in Early Years education and, in combination with our expertise in how boys learn and how to tap into their natural curiosity and their specific needs, we are able to foster a love of learning through delivering a broad, balanced, exciting and stimulating curriculum which has been carefully tailored to suit their interests.
This means that, from the moment you walk through our blue front door, you can hear the buzz of happy, confident boys. Our classroom teachers are supported by classroom assistants across all year groups, providing us with a low teacher to pupil ratio which ensures that each and every boy receives all the individual attention and support that he may require.
Physical activity, through sport or practical lessons, is an important part of a Falcons Boy’s everyday schedule along with weekly Forest School sessions for our Pre-Reception and Reception boys, led by our Head of EYFS who is also a qualified Forest Schools practitioner. Music, French, Art, PE and ICT lessons are all taught by specialist teachers.
Our mission is to prepare young boys for competitive preparatory schools in London and to ensure a successful future of learning. Being part of the same family, the school has excellent links with Falcons Prep Richmond which is where many of the boys progress to at the end of Year 2. For parents looking for entry at 7+ to other leading independent schools, we work closely with these families to help them choose the right school for their son, and then assist and help prepare the boys for the 7+ exams.
The core values of our school are Courage, Curiosity and Care and we are proud that every boy who leaves the Falcon’s Pre-Prep displays these values in all that he does. We have high expectations of our pupils, emphasising the positive ways in which the boys conduct themselves within our school community and in the wider world.
We would love to be able to offer you an individual tour of the school to show you our boys in their learning environment and to talk to you about how we can give your son, not just the best start but, the right start to his learning journey.
Please do not hesitate to contact us on 020 8747 8393 or email us for further details about our school and to arrange a visit.
Thank you for visiting our website and I hope to hear from you.
