Falkland House School is a residential school for boys of all ages who have Additional Support Needs and who find it difficult to cope in a mainstream educational environment. We offer day, 39 and 52 week provision.
FHS judged 'excellent' across the board 
Falkland House School is celebrating!

The Care Inspectorate continues to be impressed by the level of care and support pupils receive at FHS. Following an unannounced visit in June, we were again awarded top marks, giving us a grand total of eleven 'excellent' grades. This makes Falkland House School the highest-rated educational establishment of its type in Scotland.

The recently-published report praises the staff for their commitment and dedication and notes how the pupils “presented as happy, ambitious, confident individuals who had an extensive range of activities available to further their development”.

The school was also commended for its “very informative” care plans and for the strong collaboration that exists between the school, the pupils and their families, social workers and health professionals.

Falkland House School 'on the road'
FHS will be 'on the road' over the coming months speaking to additional support needs groups and services.

Over the last five years, we have been working towards improving our service and fulfilling our vision of providing top-quality education and care to boys with Additional Support Needs. Our key objectives were:
- to develop a 52-week provision;
- to create a primary education department;
- to gain Autism accreditation;
- to establish a structured self-regulation behaviour support model;
- to create an excellent transition process including vocational and academic experiences outwith the school from a young age.

We are proud to say that we have now achieved all of the above. Moreover, our progress has been recognised through 11 out of 11 ‘excellent’ ratings awarded by the Care Inspectorate.

If you would like to take this opportunity to learn more about what we do and what Falkland House School can offer prospective pupils and parents, please contact the school to arrange for us to visit.
