Nearly 100 per cent of pupils at Woodford County High got five or more GCSEs above a grade D, data from Redbridge Council shows.
Just 1pc at the all-girls grammar school missed the national benchmark of five A*-Cs including English and maths, according to the provisional figures.
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.
