The transition from Falcons School for Girls to a secondary, senior independent or boarding school is an important event in the life of your daughter. We have a robust system in place to ensure all of our girls enjoy a successful transition.
There are an exciting and diverse range of options available for West London parents: day and boarding schools; excellent maintained schools; single sex and co-educational schools; schools with a strong religious ethos. No two schools are the same.
Choosing the right school can seem daunting, particularly for those new to the system. For this reason, you will be invited to two meetings with the Headteacher: the first in the spring term of Year 5, and a follow-up at the beginning of the autumn term of Year 6.
Our teachers and the Senior Leadership Team understand very well the process of transition – and the journey that children have to make. The move from Year 6 to Year 7 can worry some families, so we work closely with parents and Senior Schools to make transition as stress-free as possible.
We have a comprehensive programme to prepare both girls and their parents for transition. This includes Transition Evenings, one-to-one meetings with the Headteacher and target setting meetings, and our Guide to Transition to Year 7, which covers the process of applying for London day, country boarding and maintained secondary schools. Falcons School for Girls’ curriculum has been designed to prepare girls for 11+ examinations in January of Year 6: Mathematics and English teaching from Reception through to Year 6 focuses on the key knowledge and skills your daughter needs to succeed in external entrance examinations.
One of the aims of Falcons School for Girls is that ‘girls are prepared for entry to the Senior Schools which best meet their learning needs and future development’.
In the past girls have won places and scholarships at the following schools:
