The Fallibroome Academy is a high achieving, mixed comprehensive school, with an outstanding Sixth Form and a proud history of success. We are well known as 'a place for excellence' and our academic, sporting, artistic and community achievements place us in the top rank of state schools in England and Wales. The vast majority of our Sixth Form students subsequently continue their education at university and each year several students choose to undertake exciting and worthwhile gap year experiences. We have a proud record of access to the UK's most prestigious institutions, including Oxford and Cambridge. A significant number of students also take advantage of our well established vocational pathways which lead to further education and employment.
Our success is based on a commitment to personal growth and a desire to meet the needs of individual students. It is built on core values of trust, respect and optimism as well as a clear understanding of the conditions required for effective learning. We sustain our success because the following foundations are in place:
- shared values
- highly effective pastoral systems that build the good relationships necessary for achievement
- high expectations of academic progress
- effective opportunities for the student voice to be heard and student leadership to be developed
- effective partnerships with parents and local, national and international communities
- high quality teaching and support by a dedicated and well-informed staff
- modern, well maintained buildings and resources that enhance learning
- a flexible curriculum that meets the needs of all students and a commitment to innovation.
Our profile has qualified us to adopt Academy status which affords us independence and additional resources. Such success is built on strong partnerships and we have collaborated with our six partner primary schools to create the Fallibroome Learning Community and establish a genuine 3-19 educational experience.
Our designation as a National Teaching School, afforded to a small number of schools which meet the highest standards, brings responsibility for Teacher Training and additional resources to invest in teaching and learning. Our Principal is a National Leader of Education and we are committed to supporting schools in challenging circumstances.
Our commitment to continuous improvement means we are never satisfied and a systematic approach to development and research means we can attract the best teachers and support staff who want to create the best opportunities for students to succeed. We are a Pathfinder School for the Whole Education network and our drive for excellence will ensure that Fallibroome students have the best opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed in the 21st Century.
May I extend a warm invitation to visit the school and experience the 'buzz' of learning in this vibrant community. We hope you choose to join us and we look forward to working with you.
