Teaching & Learning

Learning at Penywern Road

At Falkner House we foster a spirit of intellectual enquiry and scholarship.

Successful learning comes from inspired teaching and at Falkner House we hire and retain the best teachers in London, who engage and guide each child to pursue academic excellence and to cultivate the personal habits of mind and character that underpin a lifelong love of learning.

We have small group teaching at points throughout the day where we focus on the needs of a small number of children who may require additional support or stretching beyond the regular curriculum.

We believe in relatively little homework, however, what we set is important. It is ultimately the process of homework that matters. Being set a task and remembering that task, when it is due and delivering it when required are all fundamental life skills that we help to instil.

Parental support is vital for successful learning. Whether that is listening to your child read or helping them to learn their times tables, it is vital that the children feel supported at home and that they hear the same message from home and school.

A broad curriculum is followed throughout the school:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Geography
  • History
  • History of Art
  • Computing
  • Religious Education
  • Greek and Roman myths and legends
  • Latin (Y5-Y6)
  • Spanish (Y3-Y6)
  • Design Technology
  • Music
  • Art
  • Drama
  • Sport
  • Dance
