About Falcons School

Falcons School is an independent, co-educational, and non-denominational nursery and prep school, catering to children aged 2 to 11. Situated in Putney, the small, family-oriented institution spans four Edwardian buildings in an enhanced conservation area. Pupils benefit from a premium education which prioritises academic achievement, underpinned by a clear understanding of the close links between children's achievement and their emotional wellbeing. This ensures that Falcons pupils secure acceptance into top independent senior day and boarding schools across the UK.

The school's enriched curriculum features a diverse range of subjects and extra-curricular activities, including dance, gymnastics, athletics, drama and music. Premium facilities such as a state-of-the-art science laboratory, multiple art rooms, a drama studio, and extensive green space for outdoor learning contribute to the school's holistic educational approach.

Critical Thinking

Falcons School has adopted the Thinking School approach to foster critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and curiosity, enabling students to excel academically and developmentally. Informed by OECD reports and Exeter University's research, the school has integrated metacognitive strategies across all age levels, supplementing the National Curriculum with deeper learning experiences. The school's values of ambition, resilience, and respect guide students to become reflective and independent learners equipped with transferrable skills which prepare them for future challenges, essential in a rapidly changing world. The school extends support to parents as educational partners within the Falcons learning community. This is done through shared strategies and a common language which enables learning habits to be reinforced at home. This approach has transformed conversations at the school gates, fostering a culture of critical thinking within the community. Falcons School demonstrates how education, beginning with nurturing curiosity and critical thinking, can shape confident and ambitious future leaders.
