Fulham Pre-prep occupies a spacious site on Fulham High Street near Putney Bridge, including a lovely Victorian building, a modern purpose-built block and outdoor play, garden and sports spaces. Fulham Prep and Fulham Senior are located in a magnificent building on Greyhound Road with around an acre of outdoor space including a playground and sports pitch and has dedicated access to excellent local sports facilities.
Fulham School was founded in 1996 by Jane Emmett, who remains a governor. Since that time it has grown from a single class to a school of over 700 pupils while retaining the warmth and family atmosphere that Jane instilled.
In 2014 Fulham School was proud to join the global Inspired Group. Inspired educates over 55,000 students across an international network of 70 schools on five continents. Being part of the group gives us a remarkable wealth of talent and experience on which to draw and exposes our pupils to global perspectives and the best in educational approaches across the world.
We opened our Senior School in 2017, and officially became Fulham School (incorporating Fulham Pre-prep, Fulham Prep and Fulham Senior) in 2018. The Prep School continues to prepare children for a range of destinations at 11+ and 13+. We believe that each pupil should follow the path that is right for them and are proud of the diversity of our outcomes – we regularly send pupils to 30 or more schools across London and nationwide. Fulham Senior remains one of the options available, not the only option available, to Prep pupils.
When founding our Senior School we were guided first by parents and others in our community: we all felt there was a clear need for a local co-educational through-school that was not distorted by artificial and heavily tutored selection and an overly narrow set of educational outcomes. Fulham School seeks to meet that need, but to do more. We stand against some of the constraints and frustrations that mar the present system, and we offer a distinctive curriculum and fresh approach that aims to provide a genuine alternative.
