What says..

Poetry is learned by heart and recited in class and competitions; recently launched own poetry anthology of verses 'every Falkner House child should know'. Dance and drama included in the core curriculum, every year there are outstanding class productions throughout the school. A popular after-school ballet club allows those who wish to take external exams and there are innumerable club options from street dance to cookery and everything in between. Technology here is not just for display on the timetable, but blazing a trail...

What the school says...

The Main School (4-11) is girls only whilst the Nursery (3-4) is coeducational. The school is well known for its high academic standards and broad curriculum. Curiosity and independence of mind is developed and each pupil is encouraged to develop their own character, personality and self-esteem. Falkner House is large enough to provide a full range of facilities and equipment and attract a loyal and highly capable staff but small enough to retain the intimacy and personal touch essential to a a child's development. Above all, in the midst of academic rigour, the children have fun!
In September 2017 Falkner House opened a junior school for boys (4-11) in Earls Court. The new school has the strengths of the original: small, family run and personal, with exceptional teachers, a broad curriculum and the best fundamental educational principles at the heart of the school. There is the same emphasis placed on camaraderie, good manners and kindness. Every child should have the right both to a happy childhood and the very best education, with the importance of the academics balanced by sport, music and art. Boys develop their strengths without being hot-housed; they are prepared for the best possible schools for them at 7, 8 or 11+ in a sympathetic and supportive fashion. For the past 60 years we have nurtured each child to be the very best that they can be; this is what drives and will continue to drive us.

Headteacher

Since 2017, Flavia Rogers BA PGCE (30s). Educated here followed by St Paul’s Girls’ School, then studied history at Exeter University. First job at the Nightingale Bamford School in New York, then taught history at Kingston Grammar School. She has been here since 2008.

Falkner House is truly a family business in every sense; Mrs Rogers’ grandmother, Flavia Nunes, was Falkner House’s founding head, and she works alongside her mother, Anita Griggs (school principal) and sister Eleanor Dixon (head of Falkner House Boys). Mrs Rogers has three children, all of whom are at Falkner House, so she feels she has an unusual perspective of being both consumer and producer. ‘Seeing things from the angle of a current parent is incredibly useful and means I have insight into what life is really...
