  • Dear Parent /Carer,

    Please find attached the new homework timetable for this spring term.

    Learning at home is essential to raising the achievement of all our students further, and we encourage the strong working relationship between the School, Student and Home in the completion of the work.  We do ask that you take the lead in terms of responsibility in ensuring the work is completed to the highest standard, but in doing so we are committed to supporting you achieve this by offering to you:

    · * * Support and advice to any parent/carer
    An open invitation for any parent/carer to become part of the prep club at lunchtime
    A twilight session for any parent/carer wishing to develop ‘good practise’ in supporting homework, should such a demand exist.  Let us know if you feel this would be helpful

    Together we will continue to offer your son the strongest academic start to their adult life.

  • MUSIC FEST

    A GREAT SUCCESS!

    The time was 2pm, the place was ‘The Cage’ and every member of the Falconer School Community was there.

    Organised by our very own Year 11 GCSE pupils, LC, JJ and TMD, the first ever outdoor Music Fest was blessed with the warmth of the summer sun.

    Green Day’s ‘When I come around’ was solidly performed by budding vocalist/pianist TMS, pianist, DB and drummer, HM.

    Pianist, SF, bassist, DE and drummer, KK also presented their rendition of The Animals ‘House of the Rising Sun’ with ‘yours truly’ supporting vocally and on acoustic guitar.

    Our in-house semi professionals Mick Rowan (Motor Vehicles Project), and Matt Tralaw (1:1 instrumental tutor), had been invited by the organisers to perform and they graced us with their own Irish folk and blues, funk, reggae fusions. When asked to give his impressions of the event Mick replied, ‘I was more nervous today than when I have played in front of thousands. I guess it’s because you’re not a bunch of strangers I’ll never see again.’

    (Ain’t that the truth!)

    The headline act, Lionel, Joshua and Thomas, performed four songs, two of which are worthy of mention, ‘Dave’ and ‘Unwanted’; both collaborative efforts by Josh and Thomas and feature that alternative grunge rock sound that has become their favoured style. The husky, throaty and beautifully melodic vocals from TDM were made all the more gravelly with the cold he was fighting. (The show must go on!)

    Teachers and pupils sat together, performed together and in the end danced together to the pumping sounds of guest DJ, Joseph Suddick, from Sanctuary Studios.

    Wow! Well done Lionel, Josh and Thomas. It was an event that demonstrated the ‘best’ of the Falconer community... unity, respect for our differences and a celebration of talent.



  • Falconer School Wins Best in Show 2013 at RHS Wisley

    Since last term, the Art room has been full of wood. Logs, twigs, branches and sticks. Many Falconer students have been busy sharpening, snapping, twisting and constructing this wood into a castle. We called it Fortress Falconer. It's purpose is to Defend Nature. It provides a home in which helpful insects can live. A place from which these mini eco-knights can launch attacks on unwanted pests. This help us keep our garden organic.

    The Horticulture group planted many seeds that grew into plants and flowers that attract bees and butterflies.

    Just before half term, Mr Dennemont and Mr Hodges went down to RHS Wisley and entered our Fortress, along with some of the plants into the 'Budding Gardeners 2013' competition.

    All of the other entrants where to a high standard. The judges had a tough time choosing the winner. But, in the end, when they did, they chose Falconer Fortress as Best in Show!.

    This is a huge a huge achievement for the boys of Falconer School – one the whole community should be very proud of.

    Once again, you proved your creativity, your talent and your ability to work hard as a team!

    Well Done! You should be very proud of yourselves.

    The Fortress will soon be on display at school.
