FGCS wins Evening Standard award

FGCS has won the Evening Standard Outstanding Achievement in Challenging Circumstances Award. We were the only secondary in the capital to go from an Ofsted “requires improvement” to “outstanding” in the last academic year. Inspectors said the school had been “transformed” by head Simon Elliott’s “exemplary” leadership. As a result, it is now in the top 13 per cent of all schools nationally with results “significantly” above average. Crucially, at a school where two thirds of pupils are pupil premium, disadvantaged pupils made “exceptionally” good progress.
