“There are so many courageous stories and so much hard work behind these results,” she told the Recorder.

“To achieve 81percent grade 5 in English and 78pc grade 5 in maths is remarkable.

“Our parents place their trust in our staff who work tirelessly to produce such aspiration outcomes and we are proud to be a community school with such a wonderful legacy of producing outstanding outcome for our community.”

“I found maths particularly hard and it was much more fun with English.”

Shrujal Jain, 16, was awarded a 9 in maths and 8 in English literature and a 9 in English language.

“I was really worried,” she told the Recorder.

“I am really ambitious and I wanted to get the highest grades possible.

“The new system put lots of pressure on us on the exam days.”

“The system can be beaten.”
