Students are already celebrating and teachers are joining in, as they received their GCSE results this morning, which have improved from last year.
A total of 30 students at Abbs Cross Academy and Arts College achieved an A* or A, and 64 per cent of GCSE grades, including maths and English, achieved were A* to C , a 5pc increase from 2015.
Proud headteacher Nicola Jethwa posed with Gemma Byrne and Beth Wybrow, who both achieved 6 A*s, 4 As and a B.
The Recorder caught students Isabelle King, Georgina Thomson, Phoebe Wood and Louisa Wright celebrating their success outside the school in Abbs Cross Lane, in Hornchurch.
