Neil Frost told the Recorder that 61 per cent of students, at the school in Pettits Lane, Romford, gained C grades and above (4+ in the new numerical system).

He said: “We are proud of all our children’s achievements, especially in the context of the rigorous GCSE maths and English.

“Our students gained 61pc in the basics measure at 4+ which is testament to the hard work of the students and teachers and support from parents.

“We wish the students well in the next stage of education and training.”

The school is particularly proud of Sebastian Jacyna, 16, who got nine A*s and James Dixon, also 16, who got seven As and two A*s.

Pupils Rose Ellis and Chloe Gunderson were also delighted with their GCSEs.

Rose, 16, who is going to Shenfield High School in September, got an 8 in maths, a 7 in English language, a 6 English literature, two A*s in biology and chemistry and two As in history and Spanish.

Chloe, 16, received and 8 in maths, two 6s in English literature and language, tree As in art, science and economic, a B in geography and two Cs in music and Spanish.

Chloe is going to the Coopers’ Company and Coborn School next year.

This is the first year of the new numerical grading system for English and maths, with marks between 1 and 9 – with 9 being the highest.

The Recorder has worked out that 4 is approximately a C grade, 6 equals a B grade and 7 equals an A grade.
