how to start
Most girls join Falkner House in the September following their fourth birthday. Prior to registration parents are most welcome to visit the school and to discuss their daughter's education. Parents are encouraged to register their interest as early as possible.
During the year before entry girls (including girls in the Falkner House Nursery) are called for an assessment. The staff work hard to make sure that this experience is both friendly and personal. We are looking for potential rather than attainment and we balance a wide range of factors before offering places. Our key objective is that your daughter should be successful and happy at Falkner House.
As part of our family ethos we support a sibling policy. However that does not always guarantee a place and if we believe a sister will flourish more in another environment, we discuss the matter with parents.
Places are offered as quickly as possible after the assessment process. We try to keep to a time scale in accordance with other preparatory schools to make it easier for parents to reach their final decision. From time to time vacancies occur throughout the school and we always welcome enquiries from parents who would like their daughters to be considered.
