School Description

Falcons School for Girls is an independent school for girls aged 4-11, with the opportunity for both boys and girls to join us from aged two at our Peregrines Nursery School. We are fortunate to occupy beautifully refurbished Edwardian buildings and grounds in a quiet road situated between Barnes and Putney. Despite our proximity to central London, we have a wealth of outside space and our internal facilities include dedicated music and art rooms for our Lower and Middle/Upper Schools, a ballet studio, a Science laboratory and classrooms fully equipped with technology including iPads for all of our girls.

Back to the Future… Pupils at Falcons Girls Bury Time Capsule

Falcons School for Girls has marked the coronavirus pandemic and an unprecedented time of teaching and learning, with the creation and burial of a time capsule.

Innovative pupils at the Putney-based school came up with the idea in the Summer Term, as a way of honouring the challenges of living through lockdown, dealing with social distancing and learning remotely.

In memory of the pandemic, the capsule included items such as Falcons tartan masks, hand sanitiser, 1m and 2m piece of string, diary entries from lockdown, photos of Zoom lessons, newspaper articles, and pasta and toilet roll to signify the hoarding in lockdown.

Girls on this year’s elected school council took turns to put soil over the capsule, burying it in the Peregrines Nursery playground, part of the Falcons School for Girls.

Assistant Head (Pastoral), James Kelly, who led the project, commented, “The last academic year was certainly not one that any of us could have anticipated. We are proud of all our pupils – they took remote learning and virtual lessons in their stride and made fantastic academic progress.

“While we may all be looking forward to things going back to normal, we wanted to formally recognise a time where our children had to adapt to a very different school life. A time capsule seemed like the perfect idea, allowing Falcons pupils in many years to come to reflect on what life was like for those who were at the school in 2020.”

Headmistress, Mrs Sara Williams-Ryan added, “There was certainly a buzz in the school community when we came to bury the Falcons time capsule. We are grateful that we could honour such a significant period together, after what has been a very different year for us all.”

 

Falcons School for Girls Spread Festive Cheer

Pupils at Falcons School for Girls have brought Christmas spirit to Putney, with a spectacular musical display at the Putney Exchange Shopping Centre.

The Falcons String Quintet delighted passers-by and festive shoppers with joyful renditions of classic and well-known seasonal songs such as ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Ding Dong Merrily On High’. Each recital was met with a rapturous round of applause, much to the pleasure of the budding young musicians who, following weeks of preparation, were ecstatic to showcase their musical talents to the local community.

Headmistress Sara Williams-Ryan commented, “We are exceptionally proud of our String Quintet for their incredible performance, helping to spread Christmas cheer within our neighbouring community. The girls have represented the school admirably!  

“Music is a much-loved part of school life here at Falcons School for Girls. We are dedicated to making music accessible for all pupils, regardless of their prior musical knowledge or abilities, and provide opportunities for each individual to succeed, develop in confidence and enjoy the gift of music.”
