Fulham Cross Girls' School was pleased to welcome the British Council and the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education for Zimbabwe and her team as they toured a number of outstanding British Schools in order to see which examples of best practice they could take back to Zimbabwe. Fulham Cross was chosen because of its outstanding outcomes and our reputation for developing well rounded students who are happy and successful.
On behalf of both the British Council and the Zimbabwean Ministry of Education I would like to send our heartfelt thanks to the pupils and staff of Fulham Cross Girls' School.
Our visit was excellent and the detail in which you had prepared for us was astounding. The ministers were bowled over with your hospitality and the fact that you knew their research areas and were familiar with their work was icing on the cake.
As a school your dedication to outstanding outcomes for your girls is obvious on every level. We were all impressed by your professional development systems and your detailed assessment strategies and the girls were a credit to the school.
I have copied in my colleagues John Rolfe and Adrian Fenton as I think that developing a relationship with the British Council may be mutually beneficial.
Once again, thank you so much.
