All of the students who applied for Oxford and Cambridge or to study medicine from Forest School have had their places confirmed.
One in four students managed to achieve three or more A* or A grades in their A-levels.
Sarah Kerr-Dineen, school warden, said: “Across the board there are stories of individuals who have performed beyond what they thought possible, as a result of hard work and determination”.
About 80 percent of the students achieved A* to B grades with seven of the school’s students taking up a place at either Oxford or Cambridge.
“These are deservedly good results for a great group of students, all of whom can look confidently ahead to the next stage of their lives” she added.
Aaran Param managed to rack up four A* grades and is now going to study economics at Trinity College, Cambridge.
Aaran said: ““I am very happy, although I was a little confused when I opened my results slip – once I had all of the grades explained to me, I felt great!”
Jonathan Mitchell, director of teaching at the school in College Place, Snaresbrook, said: “We couldn’t be more proud of our students and colleagues for all their hard work.”
