What do we do?

Main stream school is not for everyone.
Our colleagues in mainstream do a good job in a tough environment. But some learners just don't fit in there!
For some there is a real threat of exclusion or issues that present themselves to be behavioural problems. Falcons Learning may provide the antidote for these issues. With a strong emphasis on mutual respect, but framed in a more workplace style, learners can develop skills to manage their behaviour. The team is small, learner groups are small - we have time to talk about the issues that might just go unnoticed in a class of 32 mainstream learners. 
Our sessions and activities are developed to continue to develop the confidence, trust, respect and teamwork essential for success in the workplace.


Independent Special School

9 June 2023

Falcons Learning are delighted to announce that we have passed our preregistration Ofsted inspection. We will be accepting consultations for full time school placements starting in September 2023. We will continue to offer the very best in trauma informed education directed by our Principal, Steve Wash. This will be bolstered by a more holistic package including counsellors, a Special Educational Needs & Disabilities coordinator, and support from our partners at Unravel. The curriculum design meets the independent school standards whilst still meeting the needs of the learners.

Learning by Doing

How a Vocational Curriculum can allow success for all.

22 December 2021

Falcons Learning has a unique curriculum that has been designed with the needs of it's learners at its heart. We understand that mainstream education is not for everyone. We understand that some learners need a different approach where the stresses and barriers to achievement have been removed. With the Independent school standards and curriculum design central the courses are selected and designed especially for those that struggled in mainstream learning.  Falcons Learning maintain a rigour and demand for quality to ensure the best chances for our learners. 

Technical teaching aside the central pillar of the school is an ethos of understanding, mutual respect and values.  Everyone has something to bring to the table - we will help to make the most of those talents.
