Hammersmith & Fulham GCSE pupils have been recognised as among the highest performing in the country after the government released its official figures.

Sixty-three per cent of pupils in H&F achieved the benchmark of five GCSEs ranked A*-C including English and maths, placing them nine points above the national average achieved in the exams last summer.

This places H&F within the top 20 per cent of all local authorities in England.

The number of GCSE students achieving the target in H&F has risen since the previous year from 62.6 per cent in 2014 to 63.5 per cent in 2015.

“Diligent pupils supported by dedicated teachers have produced another impressive set of results,” said Cllr Sue Macmillan, H&F Cabinet Member for Children and Education.

“They should be very proud of all that they have achieved. I wish all our hardworking pupils every success in the future. This is certainly a great start.”
