“We’ve had all kinds of emotions. There has been screams of joy and a few tears.

“It was a strange day but the vast majority have done very well and we are very pleased for them.

“This was a really positive set of results for our students, with some fantastic individual achievements. “The results reflect a lot of hard work by students and staff alike. They have worked together tirelessly to achieve such strong results, and it is extremely rewarding for all concerned.

“Congratulations to the students and staff at St Edward’s.”

Timothy Quang, 16, a year 11 student at the London Road school, was very happy after gaining an impressive nine As and one A* grade and will continue to study at the school’s 6th form college.

“I feel great,” said Timothy. “I was surprised because I thought I was going to get at least a couple of Bs and maybe one or two Cs.”

Sarah Gill, 16, from Hornchurch will be joining Timothy at the 6th form next year after she achieved five A*, four As and a B.

“I wasn’t expecting it but I’m really happy because all my hard work has paid off,” said Sarah.
