Students at St Edward’s Academy in Romford are celebrating after achieving a strong set of A-level and BTEc results.

Individual and department success have been praised by the school with 16pc of entries achieving an A*-A grade and 37pc achieved A*-B.

Jodie Hassan, headteacher at St Edward’s Academy, said: “We are extremely proud of the successes and achievements of all our students.

“These results give students an excellent stepping stone for future success at university and beyond.”

Tim Coulson, chief executive of the Unity Schools Partnership of which St Edward’s is a member, said: ““I would like to congratulate all students, staff, parents and the school community for playing their part in these successful results.”

Departmental successes included accounting (43pc A*-A and 71pc A*-B), English Language (54pc A*-B), Government and Politics (37pc A*-A and 55pc A*-B), History (70pc A*-B), Maths (22pc A*- A and 50pc A*-B) and Religious Studies (22pc A*-A).

Rosie Giddy, 18, from Collier Row, earned herself three As after months of hard work and will now be heading to Keele University.

She told the Recorder: “I can’t really comprehend it, I’m so proud.
“I definitely feel like I’ve put the work in and just so happy to achieve what I did. 
“It has been stressful but I think it has been worth it.
“I want to become a doctor and thinking about going into A&E but when I’ve spoken to doctors, they’ve said you might have an idea what you want to do at first but that could change once you start doing it so I’m open minded. 
“I’m so happy, I can’t believe it.”
