Message from the Headmaster
The College is located on 5000 hectares of pristine Matabeleland bush. There is a strong Christian ethos based on the good, old-fashioned values of impeccable manners, pride in one’s dress and a neat and tidy personal living space. There is an inherent respect for our elders and those in positions of authority.
The school is dynamically embarking on modern teaching and coaching techniques, with electronic media being used in every classroom equipped with Wi-Fi.
We offer a diverse curriculum, which takes cognisance of the way the world is evolving. We appreciate that we are teaching for some jobs that have not been invented as yet!
Falcon offers the Cambridge examinations at Checkpoint, IGCSE, AS and A level. We also offer some HEXCO and City and Guilds subjects.
We strive to take special heed of the needs of individuals. Our extravagant class sizes of never more than 30 students down to some classes as small as 3 students, enable individual attention for those with special needs without “labelling” them in any way.
The greatest strength at Falcon College is that boys grow up in a dormitory situation where they are encouraged to work together. They start off as a diverse group of boys and leave as a united brotherhood. They set goals, participate and grow in both work and play.
The sport at Falcon College can be described as legendary – over the years we have produced outstanding teams in numerous sports including basketball, cricket, water polo, hockey, rugby and soccer. We boast top squash players, golfers, mountain bikers, and polocrosse players. Our boys have excelled in music, drama and cultural activities. More recently our contribution to serving our local community has been immense. All boys are required, through our all encompassing ASTRA programme, to contribute to service in some way.
