Today, staff and pupils at Falkland House School will host a visit from MP Stephen Gethins.
The school, which recently received excellent marks in a combined inspection by the Care Inspectorate and HMIE, is highly praised by pupils and parents alike. Pupils with additional support needs are given the opportunity to learn in ways that really help them to succeed academically. They take part in a number of exciting extracurricular activities out with the classroom, and have the chance to take part in work placements which help the boys to prepare themselves for life after school. The boys are very excited to meet Mr Gethins, and they can’t wait to give him a tour of their classrooms and tell him about their current studies.
Director of Falkland House School, Stuart Jacob said ‘We are delighted to welcome Mr Gethins to our school to meet with the pupils and talk about some of our current projects. Falkland House School prides itself on achieving excellence across the board. The standard of care and learning experiences we provide our pupils is second to none, and it’s great for visitors to the school to be able to experience this first hand.’
As well as being one of the first independent schools in Scotland to gain recognition by the Autism Socety, Falkland House School also holds the UNICED Rights Respecting School Award. This award recognises Falkland House’s continued commitment to putting the United Nations Convention on the rights of the child at the heart of the schools planning, policies, practice and ethics
