Falcon House News

Welcome to Falcon House

My name is Mr Akhtar and I am proud to be the Head of House for Falcons. 

I am teacher of Art and I have previously taught in South Korea and Turkey. I am really passionate about travelling and I have managed to explore 73 countries with many more to go! I would say I live for the moment and love adrenaline – if I’m not planning my next trip in my spare time, you’ll find me jumping out of airplanes, seeking another spot to bungee jump or planning my next deep-sea dive. You will be able to find me in the HOH office or painting away in the art rooms where I would be happy to share some stories and have a chat.

Every year of your educational journey is equally important, and I will do my best to make sure your reach your full potential here at ICHS. Our House values are Friendship, Respect and Excellence - these are also the main Olympic Values and I believe they are relevant to school life, as well as Olympic Sport. Our Head of House, Mr Adams, also oversees Personal Development and we are very lucky to have him on our team - he is also an English teacher! Together we are determined to make your experience here one to remember and we will make sure you are all presented with lots of extra-curricular activities - both inside and outside of your typical school day - to not only develop your social skills, but to propel you towards reaching your personal goals. 

If you want to learn more about student activities and achievements within the Falcon House, please browse the website for information on activities that students Falcon House have taken part in over the years. Hopefully this will inspire you all to do something extra or try something different. Previous House trips have included visits to Thriftwood, Gilwell Park and Stubbers activity centres, which you could all take part in.

Finally, I would like to introduce our school values of Integrity, Courtesy, Hard Work and Success, all of which will help you grow and become great ambassadors in your communities. Mr Adams and I look forward to working with you all and celebrating your success throughout. Come and talk to us if you ever need anything!
