A Carshalton school has been given a double boost after two pieces of good news arrived at once.

Carshalton High School for Girls has not only found out it has been given a good report from schools' inspector Ofsted, but it learned it has been approved for £3m to pay for a new building.

The good news comes as the school celebrates 50 years of being an all-girls school - its golden anniversary.

The grant was secured after the school applied to the Government for funding to build a new wing that will replace temporary classrooms and provide a new dining area.

The Ofsted report, compiled after an inspection earlier this year, has rated the school as 'good' - the second highest rating.

It gave particular praise to the students' attitudes and results.

Headteacher Vivien Jones said: "We were absolutely delighted with the outcome of the Ofsted inspection and then, to receive confirmation that our bid for brand new state of the art classrooms and dining facilities had been successful, was just fantastic. 

"This is truly a golden year for us."
