Bancroft’s school students achieved the highest number of A* A-level results in the school’s history.

Nearly 38percent of pupils were awarded the top grade with 29 pupils gaining three or more A*s at High Road Woodford Green.

Nivethan Balakulendran and Sayon Uthayakumar even managed to get five A*s each.

Many of the students were relieved that the wait to find out their grades was over and Ben Dyson told the Recorder that he couldn’t help but wake up early in anticipation.

“I woke up at half past four this morning waiting to find out my results and thankfully I’ve got my place at Warwick,” he said.

Student Emman Banghu said the past few months have been stressful and was delighted with her 3A*s and an A which safely takes her to read law at Durham.

Although it is too soon to have a complete picture of the university acceptance rate, the school said the majority of pupils achieved places at their chosen universities.

Headteacher, Simon Marshall, said he was equally proud of the students who got B and C grades

“This was an exceptionally hard-working and talented year-group and they have coped admirably with being the first year to experience the new A Levels,” he said.

“As guinea pigs for these tougher A-levels, it has been an extremely stressful and uncertain two years for them, and, therefore, their achievements are all the more significant.

“They have been supported by our extremely dedicated and hard-working teachers – for whom these last two years have been no less stressful – who also deserve congratulations for their dedication and inspiration.

As ever, we are as proud of those of our pupils who worked hard to achieve B and C grades as we are of those who worked equally hard and achieved A* grades.”
