Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

The Falcons School for Girls is a non-selective independent school for girls aged four to eleven, with the opportunity for both boys and girls to join us from aged three at our Peregrines Nursery School. We are fortunate to occupy beautifully refurbished Edwardian buildings and grounds in a quiet road situated between Barnes and Putney. Despite our proximity to central London, we have a wealth of outside space and our internal facilities include dedicated music and art rooms for each of our Pre-Prep and Prep schools, a ballet studio, a Science laboratory and classrooms fully equipped with technology including ipads for all of our girls. Our commitment to creativity extends across all areas of the school: our learning and teaching programme; our creative and performing arts curriculum; and our approach towards developing creative and critical thinking in all pupils.

REMEMBRANCE ASSEMBLY 11/11

 

To mark the centenary of Remembrance, Falcons invited Peter Baker, the grandfather of year 6 pupil Lexie, to give a talk about him and his father’s experience of the RAF.

Peter provided the girls with a fantastic insight in to what it would have been like for his father in the war, and brought many props including a gas mask, medals and telegrams sent to his mother. The hall fell silent as he read out one describing his father as “missing” and then another – received three months later – detailing that he was “safe but dangerously injured”.

Given how when war is discussed the emphasis is often placed on soldiers, many of the girls were inspired to hear that women played such a huge part in flying aircraft throughout the war, with Peter showing them some fantastic images of both female and male crew.

Following a Q & A session, the whole school sang ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone?’ and then proceeded to go into the playground. The Baker family, all staff and pupils went outside and stood in a circle. Quite poignantly, everyone held hands while The Last Post was played to start a minute’s silence and the Reveille followed. 

Year 6 and the nursery/reception were then treated to a workshop with Peter where they were allowed to interact with the authentic memorabilia from World War II, previously owned by his father. Some of the items are more than 70 years old and even showed drawings done while away at war.

The School are immensely grateful to Peter and the Baker family for allowing the children to engage with and learn about such an important subject, and it was wonderful to see his story encourage the girls to break stereotypes with their future career aspirations.

 

FALCONS GIRLS WELCOME POET, NEAL ZETTER

Falcons Girls were honoured to welcome the fabulously creative and witty poet, Neal Zetter to the school recently. He ran a series of workshops that kick started the English lessons this year. The girls found his poems very amusing, as they read them in preparation for his visit. They spent time reasearching Neal and produced fact file posters for a competition to be judged by Neal himself. On the day of the visit the girls settled down quickly in anticipation as Neal gave dramatic readings of some of his most popular poems. He also took many requests from the girls who were eager to share their favourites.

Neal then had the tough challenge of picking a winner and a runner up from both the Lower School and the Upper School poster competitions. Congratulations to the winners who both won a signed book and had their photo taken with Neal and the runners up  who also won a signed book.
