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.

Headmasters 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.

Next Tuesday, 12th November, we are holding our Sixth Form Open Evening: our opportunity to explain to current Fulham Boys and external students alike what FBS offers and delivers for their critical, final years of school. We’ll be explaining how we are drawing on the best practice and ideas from the state and private sector to prepare our students for A levels, and to equip them for what follows in university life and the world of work.  What are we offering? FBS is an academic sixth form. This means traditional A Level subjects and the EPQ (to some boys) along with BTEC Sport. We have small class sizes and a high number of teaching hours per subject.  We want our teaching to provide a route to the top universities in the country, so two of our sixth form tutors are spending time at Pembroke College, Oxford and Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge learning how to fully prepare our boys for Oxbridge.  Students visit the colleges, look at the departments that they are interested in and spend time with undergraduates. We are also building strong links with Brasenose College, Oxford and Trinity College Oxford, through partnerships centred on rowing but again giving our boys the opportunity to experience university life and lose inhibitions about applying to these big beasts.

Making Mixed Ability Work in the English Classroom - Guest Blog by Martin Jeeps, Head of English

The Starting Gun It was the day after I had run the London Marathon in 2017 and the last thing I wanted in the world was an after-school staff meeting. To exacerbate matters it was held in a classroom where the only seating option was a stool (at the time it was in transition from an Art room to a Drama room on its way to becoming a Maths classroom now that it isn’t a Science lab anymore) so my legs were particularly unhappy to be present at the meeting and not in an ice bath. On the agenda was setting and in particular whether we should move towards mixed ability classes. High on acid (lactic) I was unusually happy to sit back and listen to the various perspectives. The mathematicians were acutely angry, the scientists were studiously skeptical, the geographers were earth-shatteringly eager. I had done limited research, and keenly aware that you could make research say whatever you wanted to anyway, voted with my blistered feet. Let’s go mixed ability in English and think about it in September once my calf muscles stop throbbing.

I have lost count of the number of times I have said over the last six years, “FBS will become one of the best schools in this country – state or private - in the next ten years”. It has never been just a line, empty words or mere rhetoric. I have genuinely meant it. The question now is, after our first set of exam results, do I still believe? Absolutely. 100%. But the route to the top was never going to be a straight trajectory. Along the way there were always going to be ups and down, wins and losses, things that went better than expected and disappointments. We’ve seen this on the sports field: lots of trophies but unexpected and frustrating losses; in the saga over site: incredible temporary buildings demonstrating real enterprise, but still not ‘home’; our high standards and discipline: boys from troubled backgrounds and difficult home lives whose behaviour was really poor and unruly before they got here, now saying that FBS has transformed their lives, while others have fallen by the way and it hasn’t worked out.
