Around 80 per cent of students at Woodford Green’s Trinity Catholic High School obtained more than five A*-Cs in their GCSEs – including in English and maths, provisional results say.
Redbridge Council reported the figure, adding that 87pc of pupils got more than four A*-Cs when the two core subjects are not necessarily included.
Almost all students (99pc) achieved Gs or better in at least five subjects.
Nationwide, just over two thirds (68.8pc) of entries scored A*-C, up 0.7 percentage points on last summer, according to statistics published by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ).
In total, 61.7pc of English entries scored a C or higher this year, down 1.9 percentage points from last summer – a fall thought to be the biggest in the qualification’s history.
Maths saw an opposite result, with 62.4pc of entries gaining an A*-C grade, up a massive 4.8 percentage points on 2013.
