At all times the boys are expected to uphold the ethos of the school in a positive manner and are proud ambassadors; not only on campus but when representing Falcons at outside events, activities and fixtures. We foster a desire to learn by offering a curriculum that has breadth, balance and challenge.
At Falcons we maintain high expectations and place a strong emphasis on acknowledging the positive ways in which the boys conduct themselves and interact with others. Trust, honesty, good manners, a hardworking attitude and respect for the environment and above all, each other, are intrinsic in all that we teach.
We place great emphasis on the strength of our community and the boys being considerate, courteous and tolerant of the needs of others. In this environment they have the opportunity to grow academically, on the sports field, artistically, on stage, and to take leadership responsibilities in many different areas.
