Falcons in Putney vs Ecole Jacques Prévert, Hammersmith(2 Posts)
We are relocating to London and have an 8 year old daughter who has been educated in the French system thus far. We are wondering if any of you have personal recent experience of sending children to Jacques Prévert? Do any of you have girls at Falcons? There is a new Headmistress there this year and I wonder how that has impacted school life?
Besides the choice of school, what would a realistic journey time be in the morning from close to Briar Walk to Brook Green in Hammersmith?
I will be really grateful for information some of you may be able to share.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Falcons School for Girls. I have 2 daughters at the school who are so happy they want to go at the weekend too!! It is a very warm, friendly and inclusive school where the focus is very much about nurturing each individual child. The new Head Mistress has had a really positive effect so far - she has listened to the parent body and already made a great impact. There is a real emphasis
on the link between a child's emotional well-being and academic achievement and girls go on to some great senior schools. Small class sizes mean the children get a lot of attention and the quality of teaching is really excellent.
