Gordon Falconer


I joined the School after a full career in the Armed Forces, serving most recently as the UK Defence Attache to Turkey and the Chief of NATO’s Land Operations. Before that, I commanded aviation operations around the globe, flying as an anti-tank helicopter pilot.

I have always loved planning and executing challenging operations, therefore, it was a natural step to lead the complex support activities of Westbourne House School. I was immediately taken by the ‘Westbourne Way’ and the qualities that we strive to instil in our superb pupils. 

I attended Heriott-Watt University and Cranfield University, gaining a BSc in Engineering and an MSc in Defence Technology.
