A Path Towards Success

At Fulham School, our comprehensive exam preparation exemplifies our ongoing commitment to academic excellence. Each pupil is offered a curriculum featuring a range of subjects and activities, all of which foster open-mindedness and diverse interests, while supporting students as they uncover and develop their strengths.

Our school's hand-picked teachers instil broad-ranging skills and help children build a foundation for successful outcomes within a secure and exploratory setting.

The History of Our School

Fulham School was founded by Jane Emmett, who remains a governor. Since 1996, the school has grown from a single-class institution to educating 700 pupils while retaining a warm, family-like atmosphere.

Fulham School joins Inspired Education. As a member school, we draw upon a remarkable wealth of talent and expertise, offering our pupils a broad global perspective.

Fulham Senior School opens. We aim to maintain the nurturing, broad and inspiring nature of our curriculum for those in senior year groups.

We officially become Fulham School, incorporating Fulham Pre-Preparatory, Fulham Preparatory, and Fulham Senior School. The Prep School continues to prepare children for a range of destinations with 11+ and 13+ tuition.

Our new school campus on Chesilton Road is completed, accommodating students in Year 10 and above.

The school's Sixth Form division is launched, offering the A Level and BTEC programmes to 16 to 18 year olds.

Fulham Nursery opens, welcoming a larger Early Years community and establishing the groundwork for those beginning their learning journey at Fulham School.

Fulham Curriculum


Our school curriculums are accredited by the UK Department of Education and are designed to meet the needs of our pupils at every stage of their development. We offer the UK National Curriculum, GCSEs, A Levels and the BTEC Diploma. Each course promotes inquiry-based education, from Pre-Prep to Sixth Form, and delivers a hands-on, applied learning methodology.

Students follow a project-based approach across all subjects. This approach is also articulated in the annual' Fulham Project', a school-wide initiative by which each year group undertakes a single activity. Projects may involve a joint work of art, a play, the organisation of a party, a charity fundraiser, or an educational course for younger children.

The Fulham Project encourages collaboration between students and their teachers, allowing them to work towards a common cause in a way that characterises our community.

Our school aims to develop pupils who can:

  • Show respect and compassion to each other as global citizens
