Students and teachers at Fulham Cross Girls’ School were celebrating after performing well above the national average on GCSE results day.
Among the school’s star performers was Lara Arif, whose impressive haul included six grade nines and three grade eights.
The new GCSE grades are awarded from nine to one. With nine, eight and seven ranging from what would have been A* to A in the old system, and four being similar to a C.
“Fulham Cross Girls’ School is amazing – not only do they push you academically, but they help you to develop as a person,” said Lara. “I couldn’t have achieved all this without the support of all the staff – I couldn’t be happier.”
Another top performer was former Hammersmith & Fulham Youth Mayor, Hiba Al-Moosawi.
“It’s important to have self-belief and to dedicate yourself to your work,” she said.
“The teachers give you so much support – they care so much about us and it’s thanks to them that we have done so well.”
Delighted Head of School, Denise Fox, said: “Once again, we have achieved absolutely fantastic results and the hard work of all the staff and students has paid off.
