There was joy aplenty at a Snaresbrook school today, as the number bagging A or A*s rose from last year.
There an increase of five per cent in the number of students securing the top two grades – accounting for about half of all pupils – with 84 per cent of those at Forest School, College Place, securing a place at university.
Star pupils include Cambridge-bound Anthony Graff and Zosha Partos, who both got four A*s.
Meanwhile Benjamin Spiers is off to Oxford after earning three A*s and two As.
He said: “I am usually quite understated in my reaction to things but even I was speechless when I saw my results. I am very pleased”.
