The school, in Suttons Lane, Hornchurch, celebrated a really impressive haul results this year, despite the uncertainty surrounding the introduction of numbered grades for English and maths.

Headteacher John McEachern said: “We are delighted with another year of very successful results and some outstanding individual performances, with many students going on to excellent courses to further their educational journey.

“Today’s results are a testament to the hard work of all the staff, students and parents at the school – it’s been a real joint effort.”

A particular success story at the school was Anisa Jukaj, who achieved a 9 in English Language and managed an impressive seven A*s and six As.

Her English results are even more impressive as her mother tongue is Albanian.

She told the Recorder: “I’m really pleased with the results I got, I really wasn’t expecting to do so well so it’s a really big relief.

“I’ve told my parents and they’re so happy.”

Further congratulations must also go to Matthew Napier, a hearing impaired student who achived a grade 7 in maths and passed all his other subjects.

Described by teachers as “a very positive role model for students”, Matthew has spent his time at Sanders signing for the headteacher at various assemblies.

He told the Recorder: “I’m so relieved, I really can’t believe it.

“I woke up this morning and I was sure I was going to be here next year resitting some of them, so to have passed every one is just surreal.

“I’m really happy - all my hard work has paid off.”
