Fulham College Boys’ School (FCBS) is a secondary school with academy status for boys, located in the Fulham area of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, England. It was formerly known as Henry Compton School.

Results[edit]

95 per cent of boys achieved five A*-C grades in 2013, up 18 per cent from two years ago. Fifty-four per cent achieved 5 A*-C grades, including English and maths. That compares with 49% of students who got five or more GCSEs at A*-C, including English and maths, in 2012.[1]

Facilities[edit]

FCBS facilities include specialist science and design and technology blocks, a multi-use Astroturf sports pitch and gym on site and a fully equipped performing arts centre.

FCBS is part of the Fulham College Academy Trust, alongside Fulham Cross Girls School and the Fulham Enterprise Studio (FES), which opened its doors to students in September 2012 and was formally opened by HRH The Duke of York in December 2012.[2][3] FCBS (and Fulham Cross Girls’) students have priority for admission to FES, with an option to transfer in Year 10 or for sixth form.

Curriculum[edit]

FCBS offers a traditional classroom-based teaching environment for boys aged 11–16 with a focus on the core National Curriculum and GCSE and BTEC qualifications.
