Deputy head of sixth form Louise Davis said it was a “brilliant” day for the school.
She added: “Most of the students are into their first choice universities. They did better than we ever expected.
“Universities seem to have inflated their grades and are letting the students in with lower grades than their offer.
“Some students did A-levels but chose to do apprenticeships.”
She estimated that 95 per cent of A-level students at the school in Forest Road, Barkingside, will go on to further education.
