This years high fliers included Ella Mace, 18, from Ilford, who was awarded an A* in English literature and religious studies and a B in history.

She is heading off to Birmingham University to study English Literature.

She said: “I’m surprised! I didn’t expect it, I don’t think its sunk in, I’ve had lots of sleepless nights.

“I didn’t sleep well last night, I spent the whole night on the phone with my friend comforting her.

“But it’s all paid off. I’m really really happy.”

Ursuline Academy headteacher Keran Reilly said she was pleased by the results, especially against the backdrop of change to the exams.

She said: “They are excellent results.
