Archant

A total of 12 pupils at St Edward’s Church of England School achieved a grade 9 in English or maths, the new highest mark.

Headteacher Dan Steel said: “I am once again delighted to announce excellent outcomes for our students in 2017.”

Almost half of all pupils, at the school in London Road, Romford, gained a 5 or higher in the new numerical grading system, and 69pc were given a 4 or higher.

The Recorder estimates that a 4 is the equivalent to a C grade, a 6 is a B and a 7 is an A.

Some of St Edward’s’ highest achievers were Joseph Afolabi, who got seven A* grades, and Winworth Goldman, who was awarded five A* grades.

Eleanor Cox, Alexander Clifford and Luke Bacchus all achieved straight A grades.

Mr Steel added: “We are very proud of this achievement for both our students and staff.”
