What is the school like?

The Fulham Boys School is built upon the Christian Faith, geared towards boys and nurtures enterprise – personal, social and business. 

We are a strict academic boys’ school that aims to equip our young men to apply for Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities. 

We have a truly comprehensive intake which includes boys from very affluent backgrounds rubbing shoulders with boys from economically deprived backgrounds. All meeting the same high standards and learning from one another. Our vision is to be among the very best schools in this country – state or private – and believe we are on course to achieve this in the next ten years. This is confirmed by our long waiting list of boys trying to get into FBS, the Department for Education, our Ofsted report in May 2017, our SIAMS report in November 2017 and local community feedback. We have also featured in the Parliamentary review.  

In May 2017, Ofsted commented,  

‘The headteacher has created a school which aims to achieve academic and personal excellence for all’

‘Academic progress is strong, boys are on track to achieve well at GCSE’

‘Behaviour in lessons is exemplary…the behaviour of pupils is outstanding…Boys live and breathe good manners and courtesy’ 

‘Staff are very proud to work at the school and are fully committed to the aspirational ethos. They recognize the strong support from senior leaders in the development of their teaching and in recognition of their personal well-being’

‘Staff engage with ways to improve their practice, there is a culture of collaboration and staff are keen to receive feedback: ‘There is an extensive coaching programme and staff collaborate to share best practice.’

The Department for Education have said,

‘The boys love learning and speak highly of teaching’

‘Morale is high and the school is thriving’

While the Local Community observed, 

‘The school has delivered on the big claims they made before the school opened’
