Fulham Cross Girls’ School students have, once again, excelled in their GCSE results, with an astounding 32% of all grades awarded at A*/A, the highest percentage of top grades ever achieved at the school. In the midst of country-wide uncertainty around the new, more challenging, examinations in English and maths, students have surpassed expectations with 80% achieving a strong pass in English and 90% achieving the standard pass. Maths outcomes are also strong, with 75% of students achieving the standard pass in the more demanding examination, bringing the overall measure of girls receiving a pass in both English and maths to 74%. Outstanding performances in science continued with 100% of students achieving A*-C in chemistry, 96% in biology and 93% in physics, with an astonishing 55% of grades within these subjects awarded at A*/A .
Student progress has, once again, been phenomenal across the board as a result of an unstinting belief that all students, regardless of their starting position in Year 7, can achieve outstanding results. Head of School, Denise Fox, commented “Once again, the staff and students of Fulham Cross Girls’ School have worked exceptionally hard to achieve the results that will take our girls on to some of the best academic sixth form providers in the country. We are a fully inclusive school and are exceptionally proud of the progress that all our students make, working within our vision of Empowering Tomorrow’s Women.”
Outstanding individual performances include a clean sweep of top grades for Xii Cin Lim who has achieved 7 A* grades and 3 grade 9s – results that put her in the enviable position of choosing from a range of offers from independent schools across West London. This outstanding set of results is the highest ever achieved by a Fulham Cross Girls’ School student and was closely followed by students including Lyeba Ahmed (6 A*s, 1 A and 3 grade 8s), Ithar Hajar Derdour (6 A*s, 2 As, 2 grade 8s and 1 grade 7) and Shan Hama, who achieved 3 grade 9s in English and maths, 3 A*s, 4 As and 1 B.
Executive Principal, Peter Haylock, commented “There is no secret to the success achieved year on year at Fulham Cross Girls’ School. It is down to a strong vision and ethos that challenges all students to aspire to achieve beyond expectations. The school has twice been shortlisted for TES Secondary School of the Year and is in the top 1% of schools nationally for progress. In addition to this, the students at Fulham Cross know that their teachers go above and beyond expectations to ensure that they are best placed to excel. We are thrilled with this set of results and congratulate all our students on their achievements.”
