About Us


Falkner House

Falkner House provides a unique environment in which children can flourish and are given the opportunity and confidence to excel.

With more than sixty years of experience, we have a clear vision of what a civilised, cultured all-round education should be, in the complex world of the twenty-first century. Being Londoners through and through, we are proud to embrace the best of British values in the most dynamic and diverse of cities.

Small but mighty, with one class per year group, Falkner House children are known, nurtured and respected as individuals. The range of extracurricular activities on offer, from music to drama, sport and art, reflects our approach that every child should have the opportunity to shine.

As an academic school, Falkner House supports and challenges every child to realise their potential, whatever their ability. Intellectual curiosity, self-confidence and independence of mind are fostered. Kindness, good manners and consideration of others are Falkner House essentials.

We believe that children learn best when they feel happy and secure within a challenging environment, allowing them to take risks and thus learn from failure as well as success. In the midst of academic rigour, the children have fun, quickly gaining a love of learning and a delight in knowledge for its own sake. We are proud of our children, not just in terms of their academic successes but more importantly in their poise, self-confidence, drive and enthusiasm.

Blending the best of the old with the best of the new, at Falkner House the latest technology is taken for granted but we believe that sophisticated systems can never replace inspired teachers. Indeed, Falkner House attracts and retains loyal and highly skilled specialist teachers who quickly gain the understanding and knowledge of each pupil’s abilities, interests and personalities which are so important for educational and personal development. Generous staffing means teachers are always on hand to give individual help. An open-door policy means parents know that any matter of concern or interest, large or small, can be discussed at any time with teachers or the head teacher.

It is an enormous privilege for us as a family to run Falkner House. We do not take for granted that parents are entrusting us to educate, nurture and inspire their children every day.

ISI Inspection Report, October 2021
“Pupils are very articulate and have excellent literacy, numeracy and ICT skills. They make rapid progress in all year groups from the Nursery onwards, as a consequence of outstanding teaching and a curriculum which is ambitious and far-reaching in all subjects. Class teachers and specialist teachers display an infectious energy and enthusiasm in their lessons, which motivates and stimulates their intellect…. The pupils’ personal development is excellent. As a result of the warm, family atmosphere in the school, pupils are able to flourish and develop self-confidence in their abilities.”
Mrs Anita Griggs, Principal
"We know our teachers so well and though the boundary of respect exists and is upheld, there is a feeling of positive interaction – being able to laugh alongside them. We are a team, one class built in a way that cannot be redone. If one person left, I would miss them. We need us all to be the class we are.”
