“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.”

Aaishah Haroon, 16, was really pleased with her grades which included an 8 in English and a 6 in maths.

“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.”

Chairman of the governors, Jean Roult said the children were amazing and had done really well.

“Everybody thought the grades would go down but they haven’t,” she said.

“The system can be beaten.”
