Falkland House School is one of Scotland's top providers of education and care to boys with Additional Support Needs. We were in fact one of the first independent schools in Scotland to be awarded Autism Accreditation by the National Autistic Society. We offer day and residential (39- and 52-week) placements. Fees are paid by local authorities.
They may find it difficult to cope in a mainstream educational environment and their difficulties might also impact on interpersonal relationships in other aspects of their lives, particularly with their peer group and at home.
We provide residential and day places to boys from early primary to aged 18, with residential placements of both 39 weeks and 52 weeks offered.
The school has a well-established reputation for excellence in the quality of its service provision and for achieving positive educational and socially inclusive outcomes. We intend that our pupils should be happy and fulfilled through involvement in rewarding learning experiences, within an atmosphere of mutual respect, tolerance and goodwill.
We cater for as many circumstances as possible and take boys from all regions in Scotland and the rest of the UK. They are accepted through referral by a local authority or from parents finding out about the school and contacting us directly.
The school was the first - and is still the highest rated - educational establishment of its type in Scotland to be awarded ‘Excellent’ grades by the Care Inspectorate in every statement we were inspected in.
We also hold the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA), which recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.
