The Upminster school’s sixth formers managed an 82pc A*-C grade, with 29pc of students attaining A or A* grades, up from last year.

Anjali Dhulipala was one of the Coopers’ most improved students in comparison to her GCSE results.

When asked what advice she would give to other pupils working towards their A-levels, she told the Recorder: “I know it’s cheesy and everybody knows it but never give up on yourself.”

“At the end of the day these results are with you for the rest of your life, so if you really put the hard work in it’s worth it in the end.

“I’m really happy with my results.”

Annabelle Hostler was another student whose improvements were lauded, incredibly, due to a quirk of this year’s exam timetable, she was forced to sit three crucial exams back to back in a single day.

She said: “The thing I’ve learned is that just going to classes is never going to be enough.

“The good thing about being here is that you can meet with teachers and discuss things, my maths teacher, Mr Moss, was really helpful and really believed in me.”

And further praise was heaped upon the Coopers’ maths department by Eloise Hazael, who last year made the brave decision to learn the entire further maths curriculum in Year 13.

Her perseverance paid off, and today she opened her white results envelope to discover she had achieved an A*.

She said: “A lot of people told me I was being stupid and that I’d never get through it all, but I’m really happy I did and Mr Moss was really good.”

Headteacher Dr David Parry said he was “truly inspired” by the achievements of his pupils.

He told the Recorder: “It’s a really terrific achievement, don’t believe people when they say these exams are getting easier.

“These students have all worked really hard and all the staff here are incredibly proud of them.”
