Durston House or Falcon Boys?

Hello all - I am currently looking at enrolling my son in pre-prep at either Durston House in Ealing or Falcon Boys in Chiswick. The schools seem to have a different ethos and the leaver results are quite different - Durston House seems to mainly have leavers attending St Pauls or Merchant Taylors - whereas Falcon Boys send boys to a more widespread selection of schools. It would be great if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions about either or both of these schools - any personal experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Hi all.. Great to see this thread. I am planning to start my son in Durston in September. Is there a way we can connect directly? It would be good to find the answers to the above questions in advance.

This link has some information on which schools feed into Westminster for example, www.londonpreprep.com/2014/09/leading-feeder-schools-to-westminster-school/

Enquiring about Falcon Boys as my son is due to start this September. I have not read too many recent feedbacks regarding the school and would love to hear from parents who have their kids there.

Hi @EalingMum7 - which school did you choose in the end for your son? We are still considering Falcon Boys so wanted to know if you didnt choose it, and your reasons for it.

Hi, @FreeSpiritWithin we have visited the Falcon Boy recently and very impressed with the Headmaster and the boys. Unluckily the Headmaster will change this September. I am wondering how do you/your boy feel about the Falcon, and have you heard any background about the new headmastrees. Thanks a lot.

Hi, we are also very interested in Falcon school but not entirely sure about the new headmaster. Would you mind sharing how you feel to the school and if you have info about the new headmaster please? Thanks
