The school in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, recorded a 90pc A*-C grade rate, with 68pc at A*-B. Three students have obtained Oxbridge places.

Headteacher Dr David Parry said: “We are delighted with this year’s excellent A Level results, which are even better than last year’s.

“As a school,we are very proud that our students not only achieve so well academically but also combine their studies with a range of extra-curricular activities.”

Special mention must go to brainboxes Joseph Johnson – who managed A*s in maths, further maths and physics alongside an A in chemsitry and an A in a further maths additional module – and William White, the school’s top achiever who managed A*s in maths, further maths, chemistry and physics.

William is going on to study aerospace engineering at Bristol University while Jospegh will be studying engineering at Cambridge.

Assistant headteacher Mark Duncan added: “Needless to say, we are extremely happy that the hard work of students, and staff, has paid off!”

Student Tarek Alkomi had to sit three of his A-level exams on the same day, all while his home nation of Egypt were playing in the World Cup!

He said: “I managed to watch five minutes of the Egypt match in between my exams on the day so I had a small teaser of how they were playing.

“I think this must have motivated me on the day!”

Tarek achieved A*s in maths and further maths and As in chemistry, computing and economics.
