The school, in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, was not put off by the new look English and maths grades – 94pc of students managed grades 4-9 in English, with 92pc achieving the same in maths.

And its Year 11 cohort notched up another impressive statistic – more than a third of all English and maths papers achieved grades 7-9, equivalent to an A or A*.

“In addition to the academic endeavours, a significant number of our Year 11 students contributed to our extra-curricular results for 2017 with a total of 36 national final placings - in sport, debating and languages - and 9 national titles achieved (a school record).

“This level of success, both in and out of the classroom, is remarkable; we are all so proud of our 2017 cohort and wish them every success for the future!”

Coopers’ pupil Oscar Eastman told the Recorder: ”You have to believe in yourself and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t success. Do as much revision at school as possible so that you have some free time when you go home!”
