The headteacher of Romford's Marshalls Park Academy has expressed his pride at the GCSE results attained by his school's Year 11 students.
The school, in Pettits Lane, saw 63pc of students achieve the basics measure at 4+ in maths and English combined.
And headteacher Neil Frost was very impressed with the hard work of his students.
He said: “We are proud of the progress all our students have made and would like to thank the parents and staff for all of their hard work and support.
“This year has seen the majority of our subjects move over to the new 9-1 levelling system.
“Along with the added rigour of new specifications, most subjects have also moved over to linear qualifications.
“Despite these changes, our students showed great determination to achieve a successful outcome and we would like to wish them well for their future.”
The school’s top achiever, Kimberley Shaw, received an incredible four 9s and six 8 grades.
She told the Recorder: “I’m flabbergasted, I’m actually shocked by myself.”
She will be studying the International Baccalaureate at Brentwood School come September.
And fellow student Mutiat Akamo, who received three 9s in English and RE, said: “It wasn’t what I expected – I ended up doing better than I thought.”
