Falkland House School specialises in the education of boys who require additional learning support. As the first independent school in Scotland to be awarded Autism Accreditation by the National Autistic Society, we provide special integrated education to boys with ASD, as well as those with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, ADHD and Tourette’s Syndrome.
Established 30 years ago, Falkland House has a reputation for excellence, quality and achieving positive results. We provide residential and day places to boys from early primary age through to 18 years old, taking referrals from all regions in Scotland and the UK. The school offers day, 39 week and 52 week placements to cater for as many different circumstances as possible.
Despite working with children with social and behavioural difficulties, the Care Inspectorate Report (08/2012) stated “The relationships between pupils and staff is ideal. Pupils and staff treat each other with respect.” We believe that this comes from our dedication to treating all of our pupils with respect and consideration. At Falkland House School children are valued and supported to become Successful Learners, Effective Contributors, Confident Individuals and Responsible Citizens.
The Care Inspectorate Report (02/2012) stated “Pupil’s developmental needs are met in an outstanding way because the care and education staff work very well together. They have a cohesive approach to the delivery of care, support and education.”
This is augmented by our Outreach Programme, which provides planned interaction between home and school. Pupils on 39 week placements are resident from Monday to Friday, returning home for weekends and holidays. The 52 week provision enables pupils whose circumstances mean they are unable to return home at weekends and holidays to experience a safe and caring environment throughout the year.
