Frances Bardsley School, in Brentwood Road, Romford, congratulated students as it maintained its A-level record with an impressive 99.5pc pass rate.

The school’s director of data recording and reporting, Dave Kiff, said: “We have had one “U” out of the whole year group.”

Vice principal Julie Payne said that the students have been “incredible”.

“Bear in mind we are an all ability sixth form,” she added.

“I think they [the students] are incredible and all the staff have worked really hard and students too.”

Supported by her mum Geraldine Donhou, nervous Aimee Donhou, 18, was unsure what to expect when she opened the envelope containing her results.

The student studied religious studies, law and English literature.

“I gained two As and a B,” said the teenager who is going to Bristol to study law.

“I feel relieved and happy.”

Mum Geraldine said: “It’s wonderful. I’m delighted for her. It’s a lot of hard work and is well deserved.”

Friends Nadia Islam, 18, from Rush Green and Sophie Playle, 18, from Romford, also celebrated exam success, achieving four Bs and two A’s between them.

With a smile spread across her face, Catherine Fennell, 18, from Romford, who studied maths, chemistry and psychics revealed to the Recorder her results.

“I got two A*s and a B and I’m going to Southampton to study maths,” she said.

“I’m not sure what I will do after but for now I’m really happy. My dad is really happy too.”
