Coopers' Company and Coborn School in Upminster achieved its best GCSE results in more than a decade - just a week after recording its best A-level results in 15 years.
The St Mary’s Lane school saw 93pc of students achieve at least five results at Grade 4 or above – including maths and English.
Amazingly, 99pc of students achieved that same pass rate in English, with maths only slightly behind at 96pc.
And 40pc of the school’s results were Grades 7-9, the equivalent of former A or A*s.
Special mention must go to student Emily Gibbs, who somehow attained 11 Grade 9s, marking her performance out as one of the very best across the country.
Assistant headteacher Mark Duncan said: “Our results were fantastic today and we are delighted; it is our best performance at GCSE in over 10 years!
“The students should be rightfully proud of their excellent grades- – their hard work certainly paid off and they achieved above and beyond what was expected.
“This success is not an accident and is due to the hard work of the students, staff and the support of their parents.
“We are thrilled that our students are able to go on to the next phase of their educational careers and flourish with such strong results.”
