Tears of joy and spontaneous hugs were shared at Sanders School this morning as pupils and teachers celebrated their “best ever” GCSE results.

As nervous teenagers collected their results, smiles beamed across their faces, even those who were just happy to pass.

Pals Yemi Mogaji and Daniel Okyere, both 16 and from Harold Hill, were congratulated and hugged by maths teacher Mohammed Shamsi, on their fantastic results.

Mr Shamsi said: “I’m ecstatic because my class has got As and A*s. I’m very very pleased.”

Yemi achieved six As, two Bs and one C an Daniel achieved As in all his exams.

“How did this happen,” Yemi said. “I’m really happy and my mum will be happy.”

Daniel said: “I feel really good.”

The school’s community profile officer, Stacey Kyriacou said the school had achieved a “record” five-year high of pupils achieving five or more GCSE’s at grades A* to C.

She said: “It’s the best ever results across a wide range of performance indicators, including English, maths and science.”

Dylan Benford, who “passed” his exams wept tears of joy as he telephoned his mum to share his good news.

The youngster, who wants to be a police officer said: “I’m really happy. It’s a massive weight off my shoulders.

“My mum is well happy, absolutely ecstatic. I got four Cs and two Ds. It’s enough for me to go on [a public service college course].”

Headteacher John McEachern said, “The staff and I are delighted with the success all our students have achieved.

“We are immensely proud of them, and it is credit to the determination, hard work, and commitment that they, their parents and my staff have displayed over many years.”
