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.

Alun Ebenezer, Headmaster

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.

91. The Value - By Brendan Gilmore, chair of the FBS Foundation

Living the Values through Covid-19 We and the boys repeatedly hear about the values of the FBS - Boys, Faith and Enterprise - and so we should as it helps to keep everyone focussed on them.    These values have been core to the school's response to the extraordinary challenge presented by Coivd-19.    •    FBS has remained open throughout while other schools closed  •    The physical school pivoted to become a virtual one providing lessons and learning online  •    The sports department set challenges to keep the boys active •    Contact with the boys was maintained through online form time and phone calls with the Heads of House •    Teachers and other school staff gave up their holidays •    Vouchers were provided to families to maintain the provision of free school meals  •    A foodbank was set up by FBS staff and support was provided to another foodbank in the area •    Enterprise week went online   Many students across London and beyond have not had it so lucky and many will have fallen badly behind as a result.    So I think it's fair to say that FBS practices the values it preaches - but what about the value we get from the school?   The school isn’t perfect, but we need to recognise that it is not a lavishly funded multinational corporation with the staff and resources to do everything perfectly, every time.

88. What is the point of Enterprise? Guest Blog By Morgan Browne Assistant Headteacher in charge of Enterprise and Personal development

What is the point? If you are a philosopher, a parent, or a teacher this is a question you will have been asked... a lot. “What is the point of algebra? How will it help me in the ‘real world’?” “What is the point of a tie? Most businessmen don’t even wear them?” “What is the point of school? I’m going to be a _______ (insert dream job here)”. Last week saw Fulham Boys School embrace that question with our very first ‘What’s the point of… Week’. We encouraged students to question every aspect of the school day, from poetry to punctuality, in order to squash the myth that the ' real world’ and ‘school’ exist in separate universes, light years apart. We welcomed industry professionals to come in and talk to our boys about their educational and professional journeys and invited them to quiz them about the point of things in the ‘real world’. We can talk all day about the importance of spelling, but until you hear an employer talk about throwing half read CV’s in the bin for spelling mistakes, it is meaningless and abstract.

Announcements

OPEN DAY/EVENING FOR YEAR 6

FBS is determined to give its prospective pupils the opportunity to see the school in action whilst adhering to Covid 19 Government guidelines. We have therefore restructured our Open Day and Evening events in the following ways:


Open week (21st-25th September) - Due to the restrictions, we can now have no more than 6 people per tour group, 1 adult plus 1 child per household maximum. To allow as many families as possible to view our school we will put on appointments throughout the entire week (21st-25th September). You are advised to arrive at Beaumont Avenue entrance 5 minutes before your appointment starts and you must wear a mask (unless medically exempt). An FBS student will take you on an open door tour of the school where you will be able to observe our standards and strong ethos in practice. Walking into classrooms will not be permitted on the tour and your details will be used for track and trace purposes. To book a new slot for the open day please follow this link.


Open Evening (29th September) -  If you wish to attend the event in person we will be hosting 3 live speech events at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm. Places are limited to allow social distancing, masks are compulsory (unless medically exempt) and appointments must be made in advance. To book a slot for the open evening please follow this link
