Pupils at the Frances Bardsley Academy for Girls were left “shocked and overwhelmed” after receiving their A-level results this morning.

Elissa Stoddart’s mum was in tears after learning her daughter gained an A* in history, and two As in R.E. and English.

Elissa told the Recorder: “I feel shocked and a bit overwhelmed. I didn’t expect it.

“I spent the whole night looking at clearing. I thought I got a D in history but I didn’t get that, I got an A* instead. Mum is having a cry.”

The pass rate for pupils at the school in Brentwood Road, Romford, was 97 per cent, with 66pc getting A* to C.

Grace Bunn got an A* in English literature and psychology and an A in biology.

She said: “It’s amazing. When you want something so bad and you don’t think you’re going to get it.

“You think if you get just one, you will make it, but I am just so happy, so happy.”

Head of sixth form Wesley Menlove congratulated Grace saying “her hard work has really paid off”.

The school’s headteacher Julian Dutnall commented: “Some individuals have done absolutely brilliant.

“Everyone accepts this year’s A-levels have been incredibly challenging but some have exceptionally good results.
“Overall results are slightly down from last year but in line with how they did with their GCSEs.”
