There were jubilant scenes last week as our Year 11 leavers came into school to collect their GCSE results. The boys were extremely pleased with their results and there was a buzz all around the building. There were many shocked faces as the boys opened up their envelopes, with many in disbelief at their success.
Sally Brooks, Head of School, was absolutely thrilled with the results last Thursday, and said: "Best results ever, particularly as they are all academic GCSE subjects. The high number of 8 and 9 grades our boys have achieved has surpassed all expectations and we could not be happier for them".
Outstanding individual performances include a clean sweep of top grades for Head Boy, Yosef Mechti - his results have enabled him to attend a top independent boarding school with a full scholarship.
Brimming from ear to ear, Yosef said: "I am very pleased with my results — Fulham College Boys' School has supported me in achieving my goals as it provides an ethos where you can achieve anything you want."
Reflecting fondly at his time at FCBS, Deputy Head Boy, Nemr Chaer, said: "My family has a proud tradition of excellent results at FCBS that spans many years and I am thrilled to now add to this. Although I have worked exceptionally hard, I cannot ignore the excellent platform that my school has provided me and the other students during our time here".
Last Thursday morning saw our students taking another significant step towards bright futures, with some students going on to study medicine and law. Others have secured places at excellent colleges and we are really pleased that many are enrolling at our very own Fulham Enterprise Studio. Here, students can study vocational courses and work alongside high-profile companies such as Mitie and Chelsea Football Club.
