Fajemisin, who is the English Schools intermediate long jump champion, is now also ranked ninth in the UK under 17 triple jump standings.
Radley athletes claimed three medals in the same championships.
Luisa Chantler Edmond led the way with a silver in the under 17 girls’ shot put, where she threw 12.83m to go 11th in the UK rankings.
She backed this up with a bronze in the discus after a personal best effort of 39.34m.
Clubmate Alice Hopkins beat her previous best three times to take bronze in the under 17 girls’ long jump.
