Year 13 students at The Campion School in Hornchurch are celebrating a hugely successful year of A-level results that have left the school’s headteacher “over the moon”.

Staff at the Wingletye Lane school were thrilled to discover 79pc of all those who sat their exams achieved A*-C grades, a 10pc increase on last year’s performance.

And even more impressively, 18pc of results were A* or A grades.

Keith Williams, headteacher, said: “All credit must go to the hardworking and dedicated students and staff who have worked so enthusiastically to achieve these grades.

“A number of students have exceeded expectations and achieved some notable results and I know that they are over the moon in gaining their first offer at university.

“A particular mention must go to our maths Department where over 50pc of A level grades were at A*/A standard and over 72pc in Further Maths A level were at the same standard.

“At a time when there is so much change to A level and GCSE exams, it really is encouraging to see what can be achieved through hard work and determination and I want to congratulate all our staff and students for their individual and collective success.”
