There were tears of joy and lots of chatter as pupils at Mayfield School picked up their GCSE results this morning.

At the school, in Pedley Road, Goodmayes, top performer Mohammed Uddin, was the only student to achieve a 9 in English literature, language and maths.

The 16-year-old said he had expected to achieve his results as that was what he had been predicted.

Assistant head Bill Pointon said he was pleased by the overall results.

He said: “I’m very proud of all my pupils and staff who have worked incredibly hard.

Headteacher Andy Rehling it had been a challenging year for students and staff as the new exam style is rolled out.

He said: “We are really pleased by this years set of results.

“There’s been a lot of change but everyone has handled it really well.”

Last week, 86 per cent of year 13 students achieved a university place with their A-level grades.
