Message from the Headmaster
The world has changed enormously since Falcon College welcomed its first students in 1954! However, we at Falcon College respect and understand the importance of old-fashioned values, impeccable manners, pride in oneself and one’s surroundings, and an inherent respect for elders and those in positions of authority. These lessons of the past can only help to create individuals of excellence for the present and for the future.
At Falcon College, we take our responsibility to find what is exceptional in our students very seriously. The experience that we have prepared for them here gives every student an all-round education, built on a foundation of Service, Adventure, Sports, Creative Arts and Academics.
As a fully residential school, we also nurture a commitment to compassion, respect and well-being that we believe is an antidote to the entitlement, anxiety and lack of connection that dominate the day-to-day lives of so many teenagers.
To prepare our students to enter a competitive and interconnected world, we build their capacity to collaborate, take intellectual risks and turn their ideas and passions into something original and valuable. We want them to leave Falcon College ready to engage with and contribute to any team they find themselves a member of; life is a team sport after all!
Falcon offers the Cambridge curriculum at Checkpoint, IGCSE, AS and A level, and the school is dynamically embarking on modern teaching and coaching techniques, with electronic media being used in every classroom equipped with Wi-Fi. We also offer some HEXCO and City and Guilds subjects, on occasion. We have a diverse curriculum, which takes cognizance of the way the world is evolving. We appreciate that we are teaching for some jobs that have not been invented yet!
We strive to take special heed of the needs of individuals. Our small class sizes of never more than 26 students and sometimes as few as 6 students, enable individual attention for those with special needs without “labelling” them in any way.
With the support of our Old Boys’ network, we also have an enviable reach into internships and work placements that help to shape both aspiration and opportunity.
If you would like to know more about Falcon College or would like to arrange a visit to see what we do to transform children into educated beings; inspire them to be just and ethical citizens; train them to be wise and principled leaders and prepare them to enter one of the strongest fraternities for life, then please contact us.
