THE FULHAM BOYS SCHOOL
The Fulham Boys School is an 11-18 school for boys. Founded by local parents and teachers, it opened with its first Year 7 boys in September 2014 and has established itself as an oversubscribed school of first choice with a rapidly growing Sixth Form.
We believe that our ambitious pledge to be one of the very best schools in this country – state or private – is becoming realised; our boys thrive at every key stage and go on to flourish in Russell Group universities and Oxbridge.
The Fulham Boys School is an independent government funded school. We are a free school and fully embrace this freedom. Our academic curriculum ensures that FBS boys are able to fully meet their potential and our new state of the art building provides the facilities for all to succeed.
To this end we have created and constantly reinforce a very distinctive ethos. It is an ethos that is built upon the Christian faith, nurtures enterprise and is geared towards boys.
Due to expansion we are now seeking a number of teaching vacancies throughout the school.
We constantly remind our boys about the importance of standards. Standards, standards, standards! Knowing how to behave appropriately in different settings – assembly, lessons, on the sports field, to and from school, in the dining room, in the library, walking through corridors, relaxing or letting off steam at break and lunch. Ensuring their uniform is immaculate and enforcing strict rules about hair.
The school has a complete cross section of boys. The school attracts a significant number of boys from the private sector but as a non-fee-paying school, we are able to draw in a far more diverse demographic than private schools. When it comes to preparing boys for life, this gives FBS boys a huge advantage. Fulham has a vibrant mix of cultures and some of the most expensive housing in London alongside pockets of significant deprivation. Our boys learn valuable lessons from mixing with each other, crossing socio-economic divides, and learning from each other’s perspectives rather than falling back on ‘group think’. No boy is allowed to use his upbringing or background as an excuse for not meeting our high standards, or as a barrier to achievement.
Our teaching strategies are geared towards boys and aimed at raising achievement for boys.
Our curriculum is academic and equips FBS boys to apply for Oxbridge and Russell Group universities.
Sport is central to school life.
Enterprising is more than what we do; it's who we are.
We are committed to developing entrepreneurial flair, skills and habits in FBS boys which will enable them to serve their community and guarantee economic well-being for life.
We provide a wide range of co-curricular and vocational activities, this is provided through an extended school day with school running from 8.30-5pm Mon-Thurs and 8.30-3pm on Friday.
We place huge emphasis on character and instil in our boys the importance of being risk takers, game changers, resilient, problem solvers, team players, calm under pressure and possessing a can do, never lie down, never know when you’re beaten attitude.
Social enterprise is also important; we expect our boys to give back to society and want the school to be at the heart of the community. Our phenomenal student leadership team is critical in bringing social enterprise to life in the daily workings of the student body.
Not all our teachers are Christians (about a third) and neither are our boys. We have boys from other faiths and no faith. But as a school built upon the Christian faith:
Everyone learns about Christian values, as described in the Bible and demonstrated perfectly by Jesus Christ. We will try to follow them as a community in everything we do.
Everyone has regular and varied opportunities to learn about the main beliefs of Christianity and the claims of Jesus Christ.
Everyone has the opportunity and will be encouraged to think and ask questions about these beliefs and claims. Everyone will be able to give their own view in response, whatever that may be.
The Christian ethos has an impact on every area of school life, be that assemblies, form times, lessons, break and lunchtimes, sports afternoons or any other time. It will have an impact on learning, behaviour, pastoral care and pupil and staff welfare. Three vital ingredients make up the school’s ethos: Boys, Faith and Enterprise. We aim to build a school that is geared towards Boys, built upon Christian principles and which nurtures Enterprise.
As a free school we aim to constantly push the boundaries and offer the very best experience to all our boys and staff. Our extended school day means that staff and students benefit from 18 extra days holiday. Along with other staff perks, we also have innovative ways of looking after our staff and recognise they are our most precious resource.
