Mrs Williams-Ryan commented: “I am delighted to be taking on the headship at an exciting time for Falcons School for Girls as they launch Peregrines Pre-Preparatory. The school has a reputation for academic excellence, the children are confident, cheerful and motivated, the staff knowledgeable, positive, kind and creative, with high expectations, and the facilities are superb (how many other preparatory schools can boast a large pirate ship in the playground?), especially in London where space is at a premium”.
