Courtney Hosp

Fulham Cross Girls' School and Language College

The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School

Fulham, London

Courtney began her teaching career at this Fulham school as a Newly Qualified Teacher and quickly moved up the ranks to become Head of Religious Studies and then Head of Humanities (with a stint as Head of Year). In every role, she has secured ‘eye-watering outcomes’.

In this inner-city, entirely inclusive all girls’, comprehensive, Courtney has been responsible for securing grades of 96% 4-9 and 66% grade 7.  Not only this, but she has single-handedly coached countless young women to secure places at Russell Group Universities, helping them overcome significant obstacles.
