Teachers, parents and students alike were crossing their fingers yesterday (Thurs) as they eagerly awaited A-level results, but which schools came on top this year?

Drapers Academy, in Settle Road, Romford, were beyond proud to announce that 81 per cent of their students had gained a place at a university.

The departing head girl, Pauline Siasat, achieved an A*, two Bs and a C, meaning she will be able to pursue her dream career in medical research as she will be going on to study biomedical sciences at the University of Essex.

Head of sixth form, Julie Armstrong, said: “We are so proud of what our students have achieved today.

“They have worked exceptionally hard over the past two years and their results reflect this.”

Coopers’ Company and Coborn School, in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, were thrilled to find out that 61.8pc of their students received A*-B grades.

Student Shaun Merchant, 18, of Upminster, who received three A*s, said: “It’s wonderful! I’m still in shock about how well I did!”

Headteacher David Parry said the school was “delighted” with its results.

And the headteacher of Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School, St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, Kim O’Neill, was ecstatic to hear that 63pc of students received A*s-B and 29pc achieved A*s-A.

She said: “We are absolutely thrilled, particularly bearing in mind all the current reforms going on.

“It’s testament to the hard work of the girls and the staff are so magnificently committed.”

The Campion School, Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch, also received good results with 42pc of sixth formers achieving A*-B grades.

Kane Ramstead, 18, of Rise Park, received two A*s and an A which have secured his place at the University of Birmingham to study chemical engineering.

He said: “I’m obviously pleased about my results and happy that I’ve made it into my university of choice.”

Girls at Frances Bardsley School, in Brentwood Road, Romford, were overjoyed with a 37.3pc pass rate at A*-B.

When all of the results were tallied up, it was calculated that this year’s overall pass rate in Havering is 96.3pc.

Cllr Meg Davis, cabinet member for children and learning, said: “What matters most is that our young people have worked as hard as they could and are happy with their results. I wish them all the luck for the future.”
