About Our School

The Falcons School for Boys, is a non-selective, independent school for boys aged 3 – 13, based on two sites in Chiswick and Richmond.

The school, formerly Falkner House Boys, was founded in 1956 and at that time located in Notting Hill.  In September 1989 the school transferred to its pre prep site in Burnaby Gardens, changing its name to The Falcons.  The pre prep is the founding member of the Falcons Schools, part of the Alpha Plus Group, one of the UK’s most successful educational organisations.  The Falcons School for Girls, located in Putney was acquired in 2001, and the Falcons Preparatory Department in Richmond, catering for boys 7 – 13, opened in September 2008.

The Falcons School for Boys can now offer continuous quality education for boys from 3 years through to 13 years.  Movement from the Pre – Prep to the Prep is automatic, subject only to an internal informal English and Maths assessment.  For those parents who wish to look to other preparatory schools, we continue to prepare boys for 7+ and 11+ competitive entry if appropriate.  Our guiding principle is that we will support and help our boys to make the move on to their next school at whatever point is most appropriate for them. Achieving academic excellence is something that all of our boys strive for and many gain successful entry to the destination schools of their choice.

Our highly qualified and dedicated teaching staff work towards the common aims of fostering a caring and productive teaching environment; developing a love of learning, a strong sense of community and the ability to make judgments between right and wrong. Our boys are sent on to the next stage of their education with the confidence to succeed.

The Falcons School for Boys and The Falcons School for Girls are both part of the Alpha Plus Group.
