Our vision

The Fulham Boys School

Our pledge, and unflinching resolve, is to be one of the best schools in this country - state or private in the next ten years. 

To achieve this and pull off the seemingly impossible, we have created and constantly reinforced a very distinctive ethos. It is an ethos that is built upon the Christian faith, nurtures enterprise and is geared towards boys.

Headmaster's Welcome

The Fulham Boys School opened in September 2014 with its first Year 7 pupils and currently has boys in Years 7-12. We are particularly excited this year to open our inaugural sixth form. At the helm is our Head of Sixth Form, Mr Ross Maggs, who joined us last year from Brighton College, one of the country’s best schools.

FBS is a Free School, which means we are a publicly funded independent school. We embrace our independence which is evident in the way we design our curriculum, structure our school day, appoint and retain our staff, manage our finances and above all in our distinctive school ethos.

This ethos underpins everything. It is an ethos that is geared towards boys, nurtures enterprise - business, social and personal - and is built upon the Christian Faith; an ethos which relies on strong leadership, is committed to firm discipline, academic excellence, a love of sport and an appreciation of the arts. It is an ethos that transcends backgrounds and abilities, making FBS a truly comprehensive school.

Moreover, FBS is more than just a school. We are a real cooperative and as such rely completely on total buy in from parents, teachers, boys, governors and founders. Together, we believe we can fulfil our unswerving aim of becoming one of the best schools in this country - state or private.

Alun Ebenezer, Headmaster

97. Dickensian lessons for an NQT - By Helen Watkinson, English Teacher

As a teacher of English, I spend the vast majority of my time reading, writing, and thinking about other people’s words. Therefore, when reflecting on my first term as a newly qualified teacher at the Fulham Boys School, I turned to literature. I thought about Shakespeare. I thought about Austen. I thought about Virginia Woolf. But, eventually, I settled on Dickens. The following quotations - the opening lines of some of his most famous pieces of writing - seemed to me to sum up what teaching has taught me thus far… It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair. - A Tale of Two Cities 1st September 2020. The best of times: the beginning of an exciting new chapter. The worst of times: beginning this chapter in the midst of a global pandemic. The challenges I faced starting out in teaching in 2020 were unprecedented; the rewards have been unimaginable. Lesson: There is always a silver lining.

96. 2021

January has always been my least favourite month. Christmas is over, the summer is millions of miles away, it’s cold and dark, and getting out of bed, let alone onto my bike to cycle to work, takes all I can muster up of that old ‘can do attitude’. And that’s a normal January. A January during the best of times. January 2021 is not normal. And definitely not during the best of times. So how do we get through January 2021 and beyond? Let me suggest ten things.

92. CARDS ON THE TABLE

It’s time to put our cards on the table. Just over six years ago, a group of staff, boys and parents believed sufficiently in FBS to push against the odds to get it to open. It was a risk and hard work, with lots of ups and downs. Six years on, the school is oversubscribed; we delivered a cracking set of GCSE results last Thursday, we have a cabinet full of sports trophies, have been London debating champions, can boast of grade 8 LAMDA actors, are about to move to a state of the art building, have standards and an ethos described as ‘beyond exceptional’ and have the best male voice singing outside Wales. And yet, as we set up our Sixth Form, it almost seems like day one again. We were told that it would be difficult, ridiculously competitive in this part of West London, and would take about five years to establish a top class sixth form. ‘Don’t sell out and settle for less for short term gain’ we were told. ‘Be true to your vision and ethos’ they said. We won’t. And we will. But it is hard. Really hard. And the time has come to put our cards on the table and say, to make this work, we need you. But also, you need us.

Announcements

The day is designed to enable students to try out different A Level courses, hear from current Sixth Form students about their experiences of Sixth Form and make an informed decision about the courses they wish to pursue. More details about the specifics of the day to follow.

School closure and remote learning update

In light of the Prime Minister's announcement that schools will be closed for the vast majority of pupils until half term and that there will be no GCSE or A Level exams this summer, we have changed our online provision to include live learning and interactive teaching for all pupils. This will be in place from Monday 11th January.
