Alieen Sartor, 18, was offered a place at Cambridge University to read natural sciences, for three A* in maths, physics and Russian.

“Nothing prepares you for opening that envelope,” she said.

“I’m over the moon, it’s surreal I can’t believe it.

“I didn’t have a social life but all the hard work has paid off.”

Headteacher Andrew Beaumont said he was sending congratulations to all the students and he is delighted with the outstanding progress.

It’s the school’s highest ever average points score per student since records began.

“The quality of the A-level results has enabled students to go on to the universities of their choice - this includes a number of Russell Group institutions and two places at the University of Cambridge.

“We also congratulate our students who have completed their vocational courses and will now progress on to university and employment.”

Luke Hartnell, 17, was pleased with his three Ds in Btech businesses level three.

“I didn’t do exams, just course work,” he said.

“I’m happy as I needed lower grades to get into Greenwich University.”

Lydia Watkins, 18, was the second pupil to get a place at Cambridge to read history for one A* and 3 As in Russian, English literature, geography, and history.

She said the teachers at the school have been amazing and it took a lot of work but it was “worth it in the end”.

“It will open up so many opportunities and I am really looking forward to what is next,” she added.

“(Cambridge) was not something I considered before but the school really energised me and encouraged me to try.

“I am really happy and plan to enjoy the feeling – it is quite unique.”
