The Falcons School for Girls is part of the Falcons group of schools. The school educates boys and girls from 2 – 4 in its Peregrines Nursery. Girls remain at Falcons School for Girls until 11, preparing for the London day schools’ 11+ Examinations and 11+ Common Entrance for country boarding schools.

The Falcons School for Girls began an exciting new era in 2014 when it relocated to larger premises in Putney. Outstanding facilities are provided across four Edwardian Houses in Woodborough Road, a leafy conversation area.

Outstanding exit results enable girls to gain entry at schools such as City of London School for Girls, Francis Holland, Heathfield, Ibstock Place, Marymount, Putney High School, St Paul’s Girls and Wimbledon High School. The school was rated ‘excellent’ in all categories by ISI.
