About Us

Falkner House is a school for boys between the ages of 4 and 11.

Falkner House offers a unique environment in which the boys can flourish and are given the opportunity and confidence to excel. We have no doubt that our teachers are unique in how they know, nurture and genuinely value the boys as individuals.

Small but mighty, Falkner House boys are confident without being macho. They show cheerful grit and determination, and are good sports at all times. A family feeling underpins the busy yet friendly environment and as a result pupils have an engaging openness, intellectual curiosity and courtesy beyond their years.

We believe passionately that we serve boys best by being in a single sex environment. Nonetheless, we feel we have the best of both worlds, joining the girls on the sports field, in the pool, on the stage and for school celebrations.

Falkner House aims to:

  • Ensure that all children achieve a high standard of work across the curriculum
  • Provide a broad curriculum with progression through the years
  • Provide a caring and happy atmosphere
  • Provide an appropriate set of expectations for each individual child
  • Develop self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Encourage an ability to form easy relationships with both peers and adults
  • Encourage a sense of individual pride in all school and personal activities
  • Instil a wide variety of life skills


Pupils show an extraordinarily positive mental attitude towards challenging academic demands.”
