Teachers have been jumping for joy along with the students at Coopers' Company and Coborn School this morning as they received some "outstanding" results.
More than 90 per cent students achieved an A to C grade in English and Maths at the school in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, and head of year 11 Leigh Marshall said he was over the moon.
He said: “We don’t have the overall results yet, but we’re expecting the overall pass grade to be in the 80s.
“We are absolutely delighted for all the students, who have worked so hard, it’s outstanding.
“Our mantra has always been that if you put in the hard work, it pays off, and that’s proven today.”
A total of 88pc of students achieved 5 GCSE’s A* to C today, including English and Maths.
Students weren’t looking too nervous this morning after having practiced the nerve-wracking exercise earlier this year.
Mr Marshall said: “When they received their mocks, we made them practice it as if they were getting their results for real.
“I think that helped as I only saw nervous excited faced this morning!”
